Conclusion 3 The people, who charm the rural area and live a nonintensive life, are the Navajo. These people have lived among us for over decades and centuries, and have the best survival skills for the desert area. Among the Navajo culture their primary mode of subsistence are pastoralists. Navajo and other pastoralists live an abnormal life compared to today’s society. With that being said I will discuss three aspects of culture that involved the Navajo society.
It emphasises an intimate relationship with all aspects of their lives, all living things and the environment (Poroch et al., 2009, pp. 2, 6). An important cultural aspect is 'the Dreamings' which inform their history, culture, identity and codes of 'behaviour and social relations' (Broome, 2002, p. 19). 'The Dreamings' made the law passed on to the ancestors. Law is the stories and songs, the ceremonies and naming of everything, it is the rules by which Indigenous Australians live, it is their spiritual connection and responsibility to their country and Kin (Harvey in Crowden, 2013, p.117).
These flags that are carried represent the people and the environment they live in; an American flag, flags of each tribe, an eagle staff, and finally the powwow flag. The elders, because of their experience get to carry the ‘Eagle Staff’ because of their tremendous spiritual experience and knowledge. The aboriginal people get carry the US flag with respect even though they faced tremendous suffering from the Americans. All these flags have many meanings; One is to remember their elders who held their faith to fight against America and it represents the symbol of America (which includes the natives). When everyone is in the arbor, a prayer is
LOST Ash. The powdery substance left over from combustion. That's all that remains at Malachor V. I remember that day as if it were yesterday, how could I not... the day I became a monster. Malachor V was an agricultural world, one of many supplying food and other commodities to other human-colonised planets spread across the galaxy. The only habitable planet of six in the Malachor system, it was a rare find - perfect atmosphere, fertile soil and warm climate.
The Canadians worked together in their large families to produce these crops. Another strength is that with their livestock, they were able to make warm clothes out of deerskin and ample fur so they would not freeze during the winter. They were also able to have wool from their sheep to make jackets or blankets to keep them
John Steinbeck’s novel contained many examples of symbolism including; the dream house, hands, soft things, Candy’s dog, and the river. First of all, a dreamer is a person who lives in a world of unrealistic fantasy’s that they long for. The dream farm was the first symbol mentioned in the novel. George explains it to be a safe place. A place where they will grow their own food, have many rabbits, and raise livestock.
Nature has a profound impact on the cultural and spiritual lives of Native Americans. From a tribal members early age on, the natural universe is apparent in the Native American culture. Many times, indigenous people are even named after elements of nature. Native American author Medicine Grizzlybear Lake and his son “Wind-Wolf” (Grizzlybear Lake 370) are both examples of this. The relationship between nature and culture is thus evident in the education of Native Americans, as well.
My own experiences are suburban living and just enjoying the weather and scenery. Many of the ways of living from that era that Tayo and his family experienced are all but gone now. Tayo describes a place in Ceremony, (1977) that I love and have believed about the Southwest, “There was a peaceful silence beneath the sounds of the wind; it was a silence with no trace of people.” To me, this is what I think of as the Southwest and want to think of as the Southwest, although it is not as true as it once was. How does this book challenge or support other ideas or works you’ve encountered in the course? Are its themes related to any other concepts you’ve come across?
Who you married is a big deal in the social organization part of this tribe. Their primary source of substisence plays a huge role in farming and kinship because it all goes back to who owns what and what portions go where. As a part of the kinship the land, the farming, the herding of animals this is what distinguishes this the stations, obligation and rights. When trying to trace the descent of kinship you have to follow the mothers line. Anthropologists have tried the mens line but have been unsuccessful so far.
Throughout many cultures young people are taught about these memorable ancestors due to storytelling. For many cultures, storytelling is still vital to their lifestyle. Similar to Native American traditions, many other cultures have public stories, secret or sacred stories, men and/or women-only stories, or a mixture of those limitations, to be used in particular initiations, ceremonies, or
