Native Americans Talk Back and Looking Towards the Future The interpretation and appropriation of culture within museums came under attack starting in the 1960’s. Native American groups raised questions about the biases and agendas of curators and museums and demanded that their voices be heard in the political arena. Many Native American organizations argued that if Whites are the ones interpreting and appropriating other cultures, then it is actually their culture on exhibition.(King 1998: 96,
that the leading characters in the movie Crimson Tide (Scott, 1995) possess. The leading actors and their characters are Gene Hackman (Captain Frank Ramsey), Denzel Washington (Lieutenant Commander Ron Hunter), and George Dzunda (Chief of the Boat Cobb). In this movie analysis, we will analyze the leadership roles of each character and how they interact among each other and the other officers on the submarine, and the power that they have over them and each other. In addition in terms of leadership
of cultural values that nearly every historian, theorist, and critic agrees is primarily essential: the media. Interpreted broadly, media refers to any host of dissemination avenues, from Shakespearian plays to blue jeans and shopping malls, from museums to movies. Whether popular, mass, folk, or highbrow, American cultural values connect with “the people” consistently through varied forms of media messaging. The important components of the construction of culture are industrialism and the Progressive

NEW AND OLD WORLD ARCHAEOLOGY Artifacts of the old and new world have some likeness but also have many differences. I made a visit to the Cobb Museum at Mississippi State University to analyze this for myself. When down there, I saw pottery, writing, tools, jewelry, and many other things from each world. I then found ten artifacts of each period that was listed in the back of my workbook on the spreadsheets and wrote descriptions of them. For the new Old World, I described the Moabite stone, Sarcophagus
name of Harry Houdini. Ehrich decided to use the name Harry Houdini because the man who inspired him was the famous magician Robert Houdin. Harry first worked with a man named Jake Hyman. They went by “The Brothers Houdini”. They would work at dime museums and beer halls. They did simple acts like vanishing coin tricks. After a while, Jake and Harry decided to split up and go elsewhere. Harry then decided to work with his brother Theo. They did the same kind of acts that Harry used to do with Jake.
1917, Babe Ruth achieved what he later called his “greatest thrill on the field”. Babe was pitching in a 0-0 game against the Detroit Tigers on July 11. In the eighth inning, Detroit scored a run, but Babe was able to strike out the next batter, Ty Cobb. This led the Red Sox to a victory 1-0.

The Hall of Fame does not have to be filled with perfect human beings, but instead it should be filled with players and coaches who deserve to be in
According to the dictionary a Hall of Fame is a building set aside to honor outstanding individuals in any profession. The Baseball Hall of Fame specifically is an American History Museum and Hall of Fame for Major League Baseball.

USA. In the United States the artist seems to have turned the country idol of Pop Art, with collectors and admirers in high places in Hollywood and American government. For example: Eillen Guggenheim, a descendant of the founders of the Guggenheim Museum, considers him as a Pop artist at the same level of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Roy Lichtenstein. The themes depicted in his works are daily, with simple lines and colors that give the artist an aspect of fun and humor to the figures portrayed.
