Increasingly as children in modern society are becoming more rebellious and independent and construct their own individual identities, many people argue that the peer they socialise with have the greatest effect on their behaviour. This idea is debateable however, as there are other institutions like the media or the family that are key in instilling norms and values of society. The ways in which peer groups socialise a person into his/her gender identity are many. Through peer group pressure along with positive and negative sanctions, it is inevitable that a young person will conform to their group’s norms and values. Firstly, the ideas of being isolated from a friendship group is a daunting vision for many youngsters, and are thus willing to adopt the groups norms and values if it means they will acquire popularity or just to be part of a group.

The movie Reel Injun, by Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond, reveals the evolution of the media’s portrayal of Native people from the silent-film era to the present day. It explores the portrayal of Aboriginal people through a century of films. At first, First Nation’s roles in films were not only shown as violent and cunning, but they were also played by white actors-adding more to the insult. However, as issues of Native American rights came in the 1960s, more filmmakers took the effort to present a more positive and thoughtful portrayal of First Nations characters on screen. The negative portrayals of earlier films on Aboriginals did not only have a great effect on how the world views them today, but it has also contributed to the continuing struggles of First Nations for individual rights.

By the early 1800s, the number of immigrants increased drastically. America was becoming a melting pot of different ethnicities including Germans, Swedish, Bohemians, English, French, and Polish. After the civil war, coming into the United States was made easier due to the innovations in steam-based engines for ships, allowing for larger ships to bring in immigrants in mass numbers. (Diner, 2008: 1) This exponential increase in immigrants was considered a threat to the nation’s security, which resulted in forcing government legislation to place regulations on immigration. In 1912, the National Origins Act was passed which restricted the number of immigrants allowed to enter the United States and assigned slots according to quotas based on origins.

People are working to a much later age and putting off retirement. This change is being reflected in our volunteers in that we have many more young people wanting to volunteer because the older population is still working. One other major change that we are seeing in the theatre is the number of overweight and obese volunteers is also increasing. This coincides with what the nation is seeing.
