       "Children were encouraged to develop strict discipline and a high regard for sharing . When a girl picked her first berries and dug her first roots, they were given away to an elder so she would share her future success. When a child carried water for the home, an elder would give compliments, pretending to taste meat in water carried by a boy or berries in that of a girl . The child was encouraged not to be lazy and to grow straight like a sapling."
