They raised sheep and goats, which meant they gave them food, water, and they were responsible for taking care of the animals. The pueblo men were good at weaving and made some amazing designs. The job of the women was to raise the children, but they also had to created pottery and make sure the food for the family was made. Women would turn corn into flour; beans were soaked and cooked in large jars. These jars were not placed directly over fires; instead, hot rocks were dropped into the jars for boiling, corn was also put in jars which lay on their sides near the fire. There weren't many animals for them to hunt. But when they were able to kill a large animal, they were butchered at the kill site. Back at home the pieces were prepared for cooking, bones were cracked to get the marrow, and hides were cured for other uses.
