Cultural alienation often, but not always, occurs when life begins to change and one struggles to adapt, causing the individual to look at one’s culture from a detached perspective. Elliot uses an example of the Native American culture that has been erased from our society. The third type Elliot discussed is existential
Native American civilizations were lost during the European invasion of the continent. The absence of a written language among most tribes force them to depend on aril traditions that were difficult to maintain as their civilizations were being killed off and separated by the dominant white culture, it is often difficult to locate information concerning the religious beliefs and rituals of the large variety of Native American civilizations that flourished in North America before the time of the European invasion.
