  • Sabine Lang, Men as Women, Women as Men →ISBN, 2010): The data available for Maidu suku suggest that "suku" was a complex term that was used to refer to both male and female "berdaches"; [...] female-bodied suku [...] were treated as men and initiated as such into the men's secret society, but also [...] were subjected to gang rape (or voluntary intercourse) in the dance house by all of the men present and were regarded as "prostitutes."
  • Serena Nanda, Gender Diversity: Crosscultural Variations (1999, →ISBN, page 24: In addition to occupation, female gender variants might assume other characteristics of men. Cocopa warrhameh wore a masculine hairstyle and had their noses pierced, like boys (Lang 1998:283). Among the Maidu, the female suku also had her nose pierced on the occasion of her initiation into the men's secret society. Mohave hwame were tattooed like men instead of women.
