These are too many questions for this short space. In general, Juana understands gender roles within the context of her world. Even after Kino hits her, Juana understands that men are "half insane and half god." Juana knew that man will try to move mountains and destroy himself. She also knew that was his right and she, a woman, needed man to complete her.
