MOUNTAIN WOLF WOMAN AND CYNTHIA ANN PARKER Name Course Date In the past, women and children were regarded as goods for trade. They were kidnapped and exchanged for other goods in open trades. In the society, their place was to entertain the men, work in the lands and give birth to many children. Their life was confined to the house chores. Then girls as young as ten years could be captured and forced to marry older men. Some of the chiefs could order any woman to be their wives since polygamy was allowed. The Comanche were magnificent at this trade. This caused a rift between the whites and the minority groups including the Hispanics, Indians, and the blacks. Whenever a woman rose above the odds to fight for her people or showed loyalty like Cynthia Ann and the Mountain Wolf Woman, then they deserved to be legends.
