In Women of the Earth Lodges, Virginia Peters uses women's accounts, myths and creation stories, and anthropological and archaeological data to examine the influence and vitality of Plains Indian women. She demonstrates that village life was organized around women's labor and the women acted as partners with men in economic, social, and religious affairs-functions overlooked by contemporary observers.
