Having an emotional focus in regards to the ayllu is a part of the Runakuna identity. Through this common relationship, a hierarchy system exists. In fact, the hierarchy of ayllus follows the hierarchy of the Tirakuna. In the book, The Hold Life Has, the hierarchy system of the ayllus is as follows: neighborhood → community → district → province. Since an ayllu coheres as a social entity when decisions are to be made it is the ayllu’s responsibility. Within each ayllu, a cargo exist. As a member of the cargo, one find’s their duties time-consuming and also expensive. However, when it comes down to decisions regarding rituals, only one person presides, the alcalde. The most important duty of the alcalde is to keep the community culture alive. The alcalde is the human symbol of collective existence and will. Even outside of a political aspect, a hierarchy system is an evident aspect of Andean culture because it exists even in the daily routines of the Runakuna. For instance, both coca chewing and the consumption of alcohol coincide with a hierarchy when being shared. Specifically, spatial hierarchy coincides with the religious hierarchy, which is also the hierarchy of the Andean’s social

Chagnon felt that the most important aspect of his research in Bisaasi-teri was to collect genealogical information and organize the marriages and relations between the villagers. This turned out to be his most difficult task, but nonetheless the most useful. He tells in the very beginning of the ethnography that the Yanomamo are considered a very “primitive” societal organization of human beings. The most obvious sign of primitive human life is simply the way the dress. In addition, their fickle nature, lack of industry, methods of hunting and gathering, and political organization, contribute to their primitive nature.

According to Dr. Pamela Lindell, animistic religions are “religions that believe that all of nature – humans, animals, plants, rocks, the ocean, etc. - is animated by spirits and souls” (“Professor’s Notes 2” 3).

The physical environment greatly impacted Native American cultures and their ways of life in the Great Basin, Southwest, Great Plains, and Mississippi River Valley regions. They constructed complex monuments and buildings, thrived on cultivating whatever their region of land had to offer, dealt with climate changes, and also dealt with the European settlers. The first Americans lived lives that revolved around nature and the resources their environment gave them. Without its impact, they would not be able to survive.
