2). The Iroquois kinship is based around family, as stated previously, due to the strong emphasis on family marriage is affected by the kinship. In Iroquois culture children are encouraged to marry their cross-cousins in what is called a sibling-exchange system. By doing this the Iroquois ensure that the families wealth will remain with them as well as reaffirms the family’s alliances between generations.

They were referred to as people of the long house, which means that families should live together in a long house. "The Iroquois were involved in many extratribal conflicts". .

In “The Way to Rainy Mountain” Momaday traces his ancestral roots back to the beginning of the Kiowa tribe and its journey. With the death of his grandmother he feels more inclined to know more about his family background. In order to do so he returned to his grandmother’s house where the spirit of Kiowa was still very alive. With the passing of his grandmother everything to Momaday seems so much clearer. He states “The walls have closed in upon my grandmother’s house.

In the Peace Conference in Paris, Sir Robert Borden insisted that Canada should have the same representation as Belgium and the other small countries involved at the Conference; and in the end Canada was given the representation we truly deserved, especially after our contributions at Vimmy Ridge. Canada was given two seats in the Conference, and these were occupied alternately by Sir Robert Borden, Sir George Foster, the Honourable A. L. Sifton, and the Honourable C. J. Doherty. When the Treaty of Versailles came to be signed, Borden insisted that it should be signed separately on behalf of Canada to showcase our independence. Opposition to this proposal arose in the United States delegation, which maintained that if Canada and the other British Dominions signed separately, the British Empire would have six votes in the proposed League of Nations, whereas the United States would have only one. Eventually, the problem was resolved by having the British Empire delegation sign for Great Britain, and the representatives of the British Dominions sign underneath.

None of the characters in The Great Gatsby expressed fear from religion or God. Characters such as Tom, Daisy, Gatsby and Myrtle, indulged themselves in illegitimate relationships. This shows that none of these characters followed the path of religion and did not worry about the consequences of their actions. Although Nomi belonged to a religious community, she never followed any religious rituals. She is constantly advised by her uncle, The Mouth, to focus on religion and follow the word of Menno Simmons in order to live a blissful life.
(Nowak and Laird, 2010, Sections 4.2) They prepare their land and grow the food for their people, what is known as their kinship. The Iroquois society’s kinship consists of parents and siblings that are too closely related to marry, in-laws and potential spouses. They marry their cross cousins to keep the wealth and also to ensure the alliances that are built are kept. The kinship would live in what was called a “longhouse”. (Nowak and Laird, 2010, Sections 4.5) What I thought to be interesting is that the Iroquois society is able to easily end a marriage.
