As well as many other religions/likewise, traditional religions belong to those, whom practicing and celebrating life-cycle rituals play an essential role throughout the one’s life. In Africa; for example, the most popular yet well-known rituals such as, birth, coming of age, marriage, and death in general concepts are reasonably extensive between each other. First, the native African civilizations and their pattern of performing life-cycle practices are frequently initiated as some type of contributions to the familial/ancestral spirits. These offered gifts are a combination of food such as pumpkins, honey, and yams, with different beverages; for example, water or something stronger left at the worship places “… taken out and poured over the ancestral, burial ground” (Sinaiko, xli). Therefore, birth as a first ritual plays an important part, and shortly after birth, it is crucial to name a newborn baby.
While a variety of factors have shaped the diversity of indigenous Australian philosophy and practices across the Australian continent, ones of the central characteristics of the Aboriginal worldview is the concept of the ‘Dreaming’. Outline some of the key aspects of this belief system and reflect on this in comparison to your own worldview. Indigenous people have occupied the Australian continent for thousands of years and what is believed to be since the beginning of The Dreaming. There was not and still is not just one community of Indigenous Australian people, there were many tribes that coexisted over the vast Australian landscape and some still exist today. Each tribal group spoke their own language and the extreme Australian landscape
While a variety of factors have shaped the diversity of Indigenous Australian philosophy and practices across the Australian continent, one of the central characteristics of the Aboriginal worldview is the concept of the ‘Dreaming’. Outline some of the key aspects of this belief system and reflect on this in comparison to your own worldview The Dreaming is referred to by Edwards (1998, p.16) as the time that Aboriginal people came into existence. It is clear that the term Aboriginal people is very imprecise as there are many Indigenous nations or tribes, as a result of different groups of people migrating to Australia at different times. American anthropologist J. Birdsell (Flood cited in Edwards 1998, p. 2) describes that there were
Eddie Mabo Synopsis Mabo is the name that’s identified within a legal revolution in Australia. But Mabo was not just a court case: Eddie Mabo was a man—a determined, complicated and passionate human being, who was consumed with preserving the culture of a tiny island of Mer in the Torres Strait. Eddie Mabo illustrated a man whose name lives on in a High Court ruling that fought an entire nation and its legal system which has forever changed Australian life. It pursued the story of the life of Eddie Mabo towards the struggle for land rights and his incredible life in general that have had a profound effect on indigenous rights in Australia. The essay would be focused on the achievements he had throughout his entire life that highlighted how
“The reserve system was designed primarily to separate Aborigines from white society,” (Aboriginal Reserves). They kept the Aboriginal people at these camps for their whole lives, and the only way to get out was to escape. When the colonists came, they took over large areas
Convicts arrived at this settlement in 1824. It was Matthew Flinders who first suggested the name Australia and was supported by governor Macquarie in 1819 – 1821. A meeting was held in 1899 and the premiers of the other colonies agreed to locate the new federal capital of Australia in New South Wales and added this section to the Australian constitution. In 1909 a portion of New South Wales was surrendered to become the commonwealth of Australia. The Australian Capital Territory was declared on the first of January 1911 and became a self governing territory in 1989.
With the traditions that the Amish have living in a rural area, using buggies and horses for transpiration and they do their own farming, marry in the same group. They dress the same way in the seventeenth century like the Europeans did. The Amish is also secure for the traditions that are from the outside world and their relationship with the neighbors is being judgmental. With the first migration in 1727 and 1790 there were about five hundred Amish that had settled in the Pennsylvania area. The next migration that took place was in 1815 and 1865 and about three thousand Amish immigrated to the Ohio area, New York, Indiana and then to Illinois.
Auslan, BSL and NZSL originated from the same parent language, a deaf sign language that has been used during the 19th century in Great Britain. It is said that the first deaf person who introduced BSL to Australia was John Carmichael, an engraver who moved to Sydney in 1825 from Edinburgh.  The term BANZSL has been coined by Adam C. Schembri and Trevor Johnston and it represents a name for British, Australian and New Zealand Sign Language. When I was reading about sign languages, Auslan, BSL and NZSL were often referred to collectively as BANZSL, but there is to say that these languages are still individuals. Adam C. Schembri worked at a number of institutions as a research assistant, lecturer and sign language interpreter, including the University of Sydney, the Macquarie University and the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children in Australia.

Native Americans or American Indians are descendants of the first people to come to North America. They have lived on this land for many years before the White man came to the country. They migrated to all regions of the land and formed into many different tribes or nations. These were people who adapted to the region using natural resources to survive. They were proficient hunters, fisherman, they had grown corn, and they built their homes with animal skins, sun-dried bricks, and lumber depending on what region they live in.
