The Kennewick man For many years, it was theorized that the peopling of the Americas began roughly 12,000 years ago, during the last ice age. As the theory states, what we know as the Bering Strait, was then called the Bering land bridge. This was a direct result of the ice age, as sea levels were 300-400 feet lower than they are today. The lower sea levels supposedly provided the uncovering of said land bridge, which in turn provided the pathway that Indians needed in order to migrate to lands where food was more available. This land bridge, connecting Siberia and Alaska was then traversed by people leaving Asia and thus settling into the Americas.
The Kennewick Man and the Solutrean Hypothesis The Kennewick Man and the Solutrean Hypothesis played a major role in history. The Kennewick Man was a 9000 year old skeleton which was discovered in Kennewick, Washington. The findings of this skeleton started a big issue between the Indians and scientist. The Solutrean Hypothesis came up from an anthropologist named Dennis Standford. This started from a blade that was found in 1970, which 40 years later this prehistoric slasher has cause a concern about who the first Americans were and when they first got here.
Due to this fact, I was deprived of the stereotype about Indians which was cultivated in the United States from a generation to generation. Stereotyping is a common practice in today’s society. What happens when you use stereotypes is you draw on preconceived notions about certain racial or ethnic groups to define a person or group of people. These preconceived views may not be entirely true. Many races and ethnic groups are often hurt by these stereotypes.
This is completely opposite of the way it really is. They went along with certain historical events that dealt with them because they wanted to preserve their ways and continue living a more simplistic and natural way of life. Natives were looked down upon by white Americans so therefore were treated badly due to greed by the whites. The way the Natives responded to some federal policies was not always done in a respectful manner. The economic, social and political issues that occurred were not taken lightly by the Indians and sometimes the way they acted was diverse and disruptive.
Olmec Tribe By: ANT 348 Native American Anthropology Instructor: Shandra Keesecker April, 16th, 2012 Native Americans have been here since the beginning of time. They are a global culture and each is different on what they are able to do and what they eat. For the Olmec civilization it was a bit harder to understand and study them due to where they live and how they protect themselves. Researchers have found so much about than but yet so many needs to be discovered. The Olmec civilization was the prevailing civilization in Mesoamerica between the periods of 1200 BC to 400 BC.
Randa Ring 01/05/2012 SCI/230 The Origin of Life. Today no one knows how life began. This has been an unanswered question for so long. As a result of this people have derived multiple hypotheses concerning the beginnings of life. This began over thousands of years ago with the Romans and Greeks.
This is the start of a new world, but it is also a start for a series of genocides and tragic! Many people may think that Columbus is a hero, however, I my opinion, I think Christopher Columbus is not a hero but a villain. It is widely accepted that Christopher Columbus “discovered” America, however, during 1492, millions of Native Americans already live on that giant lands. If America had been discovered by Columbus, how is that possible that there are people living on it? Moreover, it is also widely accepted that Columbus is the “first” one discover the New World.
Another case about Asian was Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts with the logo “Two Wongs make it White” and the Two Wongs implied the yellow face working in laundry as cheap labors. The differences between west and east were ordinary, while Western cultures are perceived or believed capable of change and modernization, Asian cultures are considered (in contrast) ancient (Rosen). White always had the privilege thought to despise the Asian culture and wanted to civilize them. The simple racism often came from the privilege thought and resulted in the stereotypes of Asian. Meanwhile, Asian as a ethnic race in American society, were lack of enough desire to correct the stereotypes and they didn’t have too much political right, only to know to work hard, study hard and come back home.
Native American Tribes Native Americans are indigenous people. They were said to be the first people in America. They settle in different parts of the country and formed tribes. In 1492 there were over 300 Native American languages. There are several tribes but some of the popular ones are the Sioux, Cherokees, and Chippewa’s.
Native Americans 2 Native Americans Native Americans are currently those whose ancestors lived on American land before the Europeans first began to settle on American soil and the government was established in the late 1800's. Before the founding of the United States, there were between one and ten million Native Americans. After the founding of the United States, there were about 250,000 remaining (Sullivan, 2010). During the time when America was founded, Native Americans were robbed, murdered, had their children kidnapped, their wives raped and many other heinous crimes. Their land was stolen from them as well.
