Amazon Native Woman
 


Picture of an Amazon native woman in the doorway to a traditional longhouse or maloka.  In order to understand the native cultures of the Amazon River Basin, and why the indigenous natives were so well adapted to the rain forest, one must first comprehend the essential role played by Amazon native women, and the profound respect given to them by their society.  Amazon native women are vitally important and acknowledged as the life bearers of the people.  Even though their function in society differs from that of men, Amazon native women are not seen as inferior to men.
