Native American Birthday Celebrations

I was discussing with Red Elk his upcoming birthday and this is his response!

Doesn’t mean ANYTHING after old enough to leave Mom’s “apron strings” and turned over to Dad and the MEN.  Around 8 years old then.  Creator deems boys MEN at age 13…girls as WOMEN at 12.  Boys learn to hunt / protect the village…and occasional ‘raids’ at the time they are “with the guys”.  “Raids” about 13 to 15.  Only SEASON of Birth “known” for all.  No “date” unless something like “in the time of the Big Winter”? etc.  Aho?  re
