They kept to themselves about what they did.

In all the tribes men and women are almost equal; men generally have more power, but women may do anything a man can. Marriage to more than one woman is not unusual, but for a woman to have two or more husbands is not very common. Divorce is not frowned upon in the least, the participant who suggested it simply leaves with what ever they had before marriage and a quarter of any property earned during the union.
