According to Miner, Nacirema is a little-known tribe living in the North America territory between the Canadian Cree, the Yaqui and Terahumare of Mexico, and the Carib and Arawak of the Antilles.
The Chimariko was a small group that is now part of list of extinct tribes in America. According to Kroeber (1976,109) they are a descendent of the Hokan, it is noted that they maintained their original language better than other groups such as Shasta and Pomo. (109) The Chimariko were estimated to be at 250 people in 1849, six people in 1903, and according to Kroeber “In 1906 there remained a toothless old woman and a crazy old man.” (1976,109)
Specific Purpose: I want to educate my audience about the holidays history, so they may understand the true meaning of this ancient celebration and learn how it has evolved.
The best know Plateau group are the Nimiipuu, which mean the people, but everyone know them as the Nez Perce. Nez Perce is from the French which means “pierced nose,” although that none of the Nez Perce people have their nose pierced. Washington, Oregon, and Idaho was the original region of the Nimiipuu people. Their area also included the Bitterroot Mountains, Snake River, and the Clearwater Valley. There was 70 permanent villages that included 6,000 Nimiipuu living in them during 1805.
Although the Nacirema tribe has very unique methods and focus on the human body and appearence, they are similar to our society. I feel like this tribe's beliefs are particularly similar to ours because they try to achieve "beauty" just like we try to be "prettier" or "perfect". The Nacirema can be described as a weird/unique tribe because they use torture to achieve their beliefs. One thing that striked me as particularly odd was the "mouth-rite" and "latispo" rituals because the people knew that they might die if they went through them and they still do it. They do this because they want to fit in and it is also something that has been tought all their lives. In a way, we also go through a type of torture when we decide on changing the way
Some may argue that Native Americans live a decent life with the aid that the United States has given them. Americans feel that the reservations that Native Americans are given is the proper way to respect their lands and culture, by allowing them to have a small portion of what was once all of their territory. According to USA.gov, there is the National Tribal Preservation Program to help tribes protect resources and traditions important to them. This provides Native American tribes with the assistance that they need to maintain their way of life and cultural ideals. Yet Blackfoot Indians have been forcibly migrated and partially integrated into society without any aid. The United States government has neglected the Blackfoot Indians by degrading their culture and subjecting them into bitter
In the Hispanic countries mentioned above, Christmas is referred to as “La Navidad.” They celebrate this holiday during the winter time, where it is said Jesus Christ was born. Children of the countries wake up to find presents left by a special someone under the tree
The Yurok tribe, although mostly assimilated in present times, has continued to thrive and protect their culture. The Yurok tribe has endured a sordid history. The tribe has suffered great atrocities at the hands of western culture. The Yurok went from being a thriving people, to being assimilated, almost to the point of ethnocide, (Kottak) and finally forced to live in a small area that was once a part of their vast ancestral land. The Yurok people have strived up until the present to keep their culture alive. In this essay I will be discussing what the Yurok tribe is like today, what problems they face politically and socially, and what the tribe is doing to combat these issues.
My Native American Tribe are called The Anasazi. The name of their culture group is Ancient Pueblo People or Ancestral Puebloans. The Anasazi lived in the Four Corners area of the Southwest United States, in what is now northern Arizona, southern Utah, southwestern Colorado, and northwestern New Mexico. They farmed beans, squash and corn, ate wild plants and hunted mice and rabbits. The Anasazi also hunted deer and bighorn sheep less frequently.
The indigenous people that used to call the Noosa Shire home were part of the Gubbi Gubbi or Kabi Kabi people. The exact number of indigenous population is unknown but from accounts from explorers and journalists in the 1860s say there were several hundred aboriginals living on the Noosa waterways. The Gubbi Gubbi tribe visited the Noosa area for 40 000 years before the first Europeans arrived in the 1800s. The Aborigines lived as far north as Fraser Island, south to Pumicestone Passage and west to Conondale and Blackall Ranges. This region is a sacred retreat used for celebrations like the annual Bunya Nut Festival.
There is no doubt that Christmas is a religious event but nowadays Christmas becomes more commercialized, as it has been defined as a high consumption season because the gifts giving culture becomes the most important part of Christmas and the consumers want to please their children
Christmas is the annual festival celebrating the birth of Jesus on the 25th December, at least that is what it began as initially. Since it has expanded into an international phenomenon for consumption, taking priority over our everyday practices of life (Michel De Certeau, 1980). Our time we spend divided between work and leisure in accordance to the codes and conventions of society shifts, Christmas derails these expectations. Yet surprisingly Christmas gains little attention in terms of social research, despite the fact that it can be explored diversely. The inquiry ‘What is Christmas?’ links to multiple aspects of social research. The aspects of Christmas can be subdivided into the following; religion, commercialism, gift-giving, social relationships, sensualism and mythology. This essay will analyse these fundamentals of Christmas through both psychological and sociological perspectives, as the theories among these two social sciences are best suited to the elements which make up Christmas itself.
Both religions came from the same soil, in what is now known as India. They
