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!
