How Native Americans get money
Q: How do Native Americans get their money?
A: The same way that other people
do--they earn money at their jobs. Native American
people have the same kind of jobs that other people
do, from auto mechanics to artists to doctors.
In the past, traditions varied from tribe to tribe. In
some tribes, an artist was paid to create artwork the
way artists are today. In others, that was his
position in the clan and he would not be paid for it,
but he could expect to have the food that hunters in
the clan provided and the clothing that seamstresses
in the clan provided.
Hope that helps, have a good day!
