  • Population Of Central And Southern Mexico
    1,008 words
    The voyages of the Iberians marked history. The discovery of the new world meant the unification of two old worlds. These old worlds had different beliefs, attitudes, language, and values. The culture of these two worlds would never be the same. The native peoples of America at the end of the fifteenth century ranged from the simplest hunting-fishing-gathering societies to highly developed civilizations with urban and peasant components. In spite of these notable differences, they were alike in ...
  • Life Of George Bent
    1,075 words
    The Life of George Bent The Life of George Bent by George E. Hyde is a very interesting and informative book. This book is basically a chronological story of George bents life as a half white, half Indian and all the experiences he had. The Bent family plaid a large role in the development of the west. There are many historic events, however, what I feel is the most important of these episodes, to Colorado history is the Sand Creek Massacre. I personally, have mixed reviews on the book, its narr...

By 12,000 years ago, the ice sheets began to retreat and a series of large pro-glacial lakes formed between the land to the south, and the edge of the ice. As people followed the retreating ice, they were attracted to the rich environment along the lakes shores. Many of the earliest Palaeo-Indian sites in Ontario have been found along the margins of Lake Algonquin and Lake Iroquois....

  • Sanctity Of The Indians Culture And People
    3,463 words
    In the modern world we are bombarded by others' teachings. Being constantly surrounded by the ideas of computers, televisions and books we are influenced, we are shaped. We accept what we " ve been told and avoid discovering the truth because we know no better, and it's safer. Too often "We fail to step outside of that safe sanctuary defined by what other's wish us to know". 1 If the general population of the United States of America were asked what they knew of the Indians, common replies would...
  • Their Own Cotton The Indian People
    516 words
    Mohandas Ghandi was the source of many changes throughout, India, Britain, and the world. With all that Ghandi has done in our world it becomes overwhelming when I think about his life. What Ghandi did in terms of opening the minds of the people of India is almost analogous to what Christ did to open the minds of the people around him. With all that can be said about Ghandi, I would like to focus upon his economic impact in Britain and India. Britain's self-glorifying empire building was a great...
  • Keeper'n Me Red Road

    Everyone receives guidance from the many people they encounter throughout life. Probably most people have also been a guide for someone else somewhere along the way. The concept of the guide in Richard Wagamese's Keeper'n Me is more than just someone who gives guidance, its someone who also uses storytelling and the teaching of traditions to help guide. Passing on traditions or a certain way of life is a very important aspect of guiding someone of the Ojibway culture in this novel. The Ojibway p...

    LC: In The Third Woman, you have written, 'It is my greatest but probably futile hope that someday those of us who are ethnic minorities will not be segregated in the literature of America". Will you elaborate on that ROSE: Well, anywhere in America, if you take a university-level course on American history or American literature, particularly in literature and the arts, it only has the literature and the arts that are produced by Americans of European heritage, even then largely Northern Europe...

    847 words
    The Moonstone Essay The Moonstone, written in 1868 by Wilkie Collins is a mystery novel about a gem called 'The Moonstone'. The moonstone is somewhat a symbol of what everyone strives for, beauty and power. In the book, justice plays a huge role in terms of doing what is fair and morally right through action and attitude. Although the moonstone is overbearingly beautiful and breathtaking, like all beautiful things, it has a history '... that crime brings its own fatality with it' (Ch. IV). With ...
  • View Of The Modern Indian Culture
    467 words
    "James Luna, A Native American Man", is an insightful, cut the bullshit, view of the modern Indian culture. I identify with Luna's viewpoints as I have seen many of the situations he describes with his art to be true to life. I have spent a lot of time in Northern Canada fishing with my brother and father. The areas we visit are predominantly Indian reservations. Having spent quite a bit of time getting to know these types of towns and people, I have grown aware of some of the many problems that...

  • Indian People
    604 words
    A Man Called Horse I have viewed the film, A Man Called Horse, and when asked if I would want to be depicted as the Indian people were in this movie I would say that I would be proud to be a part of that way of life. The Indian people were proud of what they were and things were sacred to them like nothing is to us today. Some argue of there barbaric-like ways when in fact they have just not yet been infected by the advances we have now. I wish my life was similar to their way of living. The peo...
  • White Man
    1,478 words
    The Conflict of the Un-Civilized The Native Americans were viewed, by the settlers, as a savage and uncivilized race; however, due to the ruthlessness towards the Indians and later the blacks, the settlers proved themselves more savage than either race. First the terms savage and civilized must be properly defined. Civilized and civilization refer to two different aspects. Civilized refers to a person or persons that are characterized by taste, refinement or restraint (Merriam-Webster's). Civili...
  • Lumbee Indians
    2,107 words
    Fight for Recognition It is hard to believe now that the plain and forthright flatland's of Robeson County could have hidden an entire people for generations. Most every part of North Carolina used to be tobacco country. But many, perhaps most, of the tobacco fields are abandoned now. The generation that has gone off to work the assembly lines in the Converse plant down at Lumberton, at Kelly-Springfield in Fayetteville, or at Campbell Soup over in Maxtor hardly even remembers the grueling work ...
  • Great Movie
    299 words
    To tell you the truth, before I saw this movie I thought that it was going to be really boring and not very good. Surprisingly the movie 'Smoke Signals' was a great movie. This move really depicted what it was like to live on the Rez. It showed that many of the Indians were total drunks and that they didn't even care about their kids while they were drunk. It also showed that many of the Indians do not have a lot of money and while they are living on the Rez money is not that big of an issue. My...

  • Humor Alexie
    869 words
    "There was another civil war, another terrorist bomb exploded, and one more plane crashes and all aboard were presumed dead. The crime rate is rising in every city with populations larger then 10,000, and a farmer shot his banker after foreclosure on his 1,000 acres" (17). In the short story "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist fighting in Heaven", Sherman Alexie focuses on the need to fit in, stereotypes, and Indian-white relations. I believe that Alexie is trying to illustrate to readers that the c...
