dc.description Women, but not men, have their ears pierced so they can wear decorative flowers, leaves, and so forth in them. The girls themselves decide when to have the piercing done. Here a man pierces a girls ear using a porcupine quill. He previously cooled her ears with water over which he had said a spell (in the bowl on the left).
