Kayapo culture = Kayapo children stay with their mother for twelve years. Then when the boys are seven, they learn to use bows and arrows. They go out with the men and learn how to hunt. At the age of ten, they move into the mens house. At fifteen they join a warrior class. The girls learn to stay at home with the women, body art and cooking are such things they learn during childhood.
