I even cursed at them several times showing my lack of respect. My punishments only consisted of the loss of some of my privileges, such as my video games, television, even my car; but they never grounded me. My discipline was so minimal I felt I could do as I pleased and no one could tell me otherwise. In turn, I treated my parents terribly; I even smoked marijuana, which they hated. Being careless and not listening to all my parents many cautions, I became a young mother in my late teenage years to a beautiful little girl.
In Mikal Gilmore’s personal narrative “My Brother, Gary Gilmore,” he describes his two brothers and father as the “teenage rebellion of the fifties” (1) for the fact that they each looked “for a forbidden life” (2). It was a life where they just did what they wanted to do without anyone stopping them. For example, “They would smoke cigarettes, drink booze and cough syrup, skip and ditch class” and sometimes “take part in gang rumbles” (2). The Gilmore Family has no authority and rules made for them to follow. They live in a life of unstructured hierarchy in the sense that no one in the Gilmore family has total power to control the actions of those committing crimes, which helps us understand why the Gilmore brothers and even the father choose to be living a forbidden life.
As the Native people of the Subarctic Shield Archaic followed suit, Pre-Dorset peoples occupied the abandon interior land. However, by 800 B.C., all evidence of them disappears. The story of Arctic Small Tool tradition in Manitoba, represented by the Pre-Dorset occupation, is significant in that the sites represent the most southerly occupation of this culture. Giddings (1953) first identified it in northern Manitoba. The Thyazzi Site on the North Knife River was later tested by Nash in 1965 and assigned to an early to mid-Pre-Dorset occupation on the basis of the lithic assemblage (Nash 1969:48).
The Blackfeet Indians were Algonquian-speaking tribe of the Northern Great Plains. The Blackfeet migrated to their homeland from the east, after having separated from other Algonquians. The Blackfoot Confederacy was once so powerful that they controlled a huge expanse of the Northwestern high plains, from the North Saskatchewan River in what is now Alberta all the way to the upper Missouri river in Montana, flanked on the West by the Rocky Mountains. “Members of the Blackfoot Confederacy included three sub-tribes or bands, the Blackfoot proper (or Siksika, meaning “those with black eyed moccasins” in Algonquian), the blood (or Kainah, meaning “blood,” so named because they painted their bodies with red clay), and the Piegan (or Pigunni, meaning “poorly dressed”), plus the Gros Ventre and Sarcee” (Waldman34). All three of the Blackfeet bands plus the Gros Ventre and Sarcee were Algonquian speaking peoples.
Nothing.” The youth in the film are coming primarily from broken homes, with substance abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. These youth see violence and dysfunction every single day of their lives. Society as a whole is quick to look the other way and immediately label these youth as “bad” rather than exploring the route of the problem. This social problem would go back to the early times in history when the Aboriginal people were exploited, driven off their lands, forced onto reserves and thrown into residential schools, where they learned nothing but abuse and punishment. The Aboriginal people lost their culture, their language, their sense of which they are, and their parenting skills.
Equality For All It’s the 21st century and our nation consists of many different cultures, race and religions. However, racial discrimination still lives on amongst every ethnicity. When my grandma left the Philippines for San Francisco in 1956, white Americans instructed she were to have no aspirations beyond being a good wife and mother. She came to America not knowing one word of English, therefore people assumed she was dumb. She was never given the privilege to work hard and become successful, all because she didn’t speak English.
As 2010, Alaska has a population of 710,231 people. The town of Seward, Alaska has a population of 3,016 people. Does the name Seward ring a bell? Well, if you’ve been paying attention then you would remember that Seward was the name of William Henry Seward, the man who purchased Alaska as a territory in 1867. William Henry Seward has many things in Alaska named after him such as streets, peninsulas, mountains and more.
Art 329: World Art April 30, 2011 Two Continents: connecting North and South American Art History The Plains regions is known to the Sioux Tribe as the home.

From the statues, to wall decor, to structural architecture; art for the Native and Mesoamerican Indians was, is, and will always be a way of life. The Sioux Tribe and Aztec harness vast differences, as well as share multiple similarities, most specifically in their traditions.
When a person is drunk, they can commit any kind of crime because they are not in their right mind at that particular moment but, the law doesn’t know if you are drunk or not and the law or punishment against sexual assault is high. The victims of rape or sexual assault are mostly women. “Sexual assault, including rape, occurs most commonly among women in the late adolescence and early childhood, usually within the context of a date’. In one survey, approximately 10percent of female of the high school students reported having being rape. Research suggests that alcohol use by the offender, the victims or both, increases the likelihood of sexual assault by a male acquaintance (NIAAA).
Riley Bartlett 5/17/11 Every year thousands of underage teens are dying from alcohol related accidents. Around 28% of fatal traffic crashes involving teens are alcohol related. Does the United States keep the drinking age 21, and enforce it strongly or lower the drinking age and teach teenagers to drink in moderation not binge drinking? Even though the Legal drinking age is 21, not everyone believes it should stay that age. Prohibition failed in 1920-1933 which shows that strict regulation of drinking is counterproductive, unenforceable, and leads to an increase in legal underground activity.
