Navajo

...Running Head: Nation within a Nation Amy Lamb Ashford University ANT 101 Instructor Rebekah Zinser July 29th 2013 The Navajo, also known as Dine`, are some of the first Indians who set foot in America. The primary mode of subsistence for any culture means a way of supporting life. The Navajo’s primary modes of subsistence are pastoralists. How does a pastoralist society impact beliefs and values, healing and sickness, and kinship of the Navajo culture? These are the three aspects I plan to discuss and prove that the Navajo Nation is a Nation within a Nation. The Navajo Nation is a semi-autonomous Native American-governed territory covering 27,425 square miles, occupying portions of northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico. (Linford, 2000) The Navajo reservation is the largest Indian tribe in North America. The Navajo’s are a pastoral and agriculture society. They use farming and herding as their primary mode of subsistence. The Navajo culture is of spiritual nature. The Dine` believes in having a spiritual relationship with their land. The Navajo’s are known as people who are in tune with the spiritual world, and they are spiritual beings. The Navajo wish to live their culture and lives without interference of the Western World government. “We do not like relief and want to make our own living and we know we can do so if we are left alone.”(Lee, 2007). According to Clah Cheschillige, in the 19th century and......

Slutwalks and the Future of Feminism

...attention and became a worldwide phenomenon, which also triggered both positive and negative responses; Jessica Valenti, Gail Dines, Wendy J Murphy and Keli Goff all published articles to express their opinions. Valenti supported Slutwalk in her essay, “Slutwalks and the Future of Feminism,” whereas Dines and Murphy’s “SlutWalk is not sexual liberation” and Goff ‘s “Dear feminists, Will You Also Be Marching In N***erwalk? Because I Won’t.” opposed it. These writers are all famous feminists; Dines is a seasoned professor and author, while Valenti and Goff are new feminist bloggers who are described as “the pioneer in bringing feminist action online” and “a breath of fresh air,” respectively. Although all of these writers had clear stances, Jessica Valenti gives the most objective and convincing argument about Slutwalk, providing factual and logical evidence to support her stance throughout her essay. One major example of why Valenti's arguments are more objective than the other authors' is because Valenti does not give a biased viewpoint of Slutwalk by only writing about its strengths. She acknowledges Slutwalk's imperfections and weaknesses, and after comparing its advantages and disadvantages, she concludes that the benefits outweigh the negative effects and supports Slutwalk with further examples and factual evidence. On the contrary, Goff, Dines and Murphy write mainly about the disadvantages of Slutwalk, using false comparisons and weak examples to convince the reader...

How Different Cultures Shape Up the Psychological Upbringing of Lilia in When Mr. Pirzada Came to Dine

...How Different Cultures Shape up the Psychological Upbringing of Lilia Jhumpa Lahiri’s short story “When Mr. Pirzada Came to Dine,” is a beautiful story narrated by Lilia, an Indian American girl who is born and raised in the United States where people are sheltered from foreign affairs. The story has taken from Interpreter of Maladies (1999), Lahiri's debut short story collection. The story is told from the first person perspective of Lilia, primarily in her 10th year, through the eyes of a child. Lilia—our narrator—is telling us all of this as an adult remembering her 10-year-old self. Clearly, Mr. Pirzada made an impression on her back then. In the story, the American culture has its major impacts on Lilia and kept her away from her own culture, Indian culture, until Mr. Pirzada comes. After meeting Mr. Pirzada, she becomes interested in her culture and history. Assimilation of Indians to America is one of the overarching themes in “When Mr. Pirzada Came to Dine”. Lilia and her parents are on either side of a divide. Identity issues are typically compounded generation to generation. Though Lilia’s parents remember their own experiences in India vividly, Lilia is an American and therefore a step removed from the culture of her parents. Her mother is proud of her being American and she thinks that Lilia has “assured a safe life, an easy life, a fine education, every opportunity.” On the other hand, Lilia’s father is afraid of her isolation from her own culture. Her father......

Lad Mig Spise Dine Tanker

...”Mange kannibaler spiste noget af hjernen på deres bytte for at erhverve sig deres visdom, myter og vrede. I denne bog får du lidt af min hjerne at tygge på - og så benytter jeg lejligheden til også at tage en bid af din.”, sådan indleder den spanske filosof Fernando Savater sin bog ”Tanker fra en kannibal”, der er en bog tilegnet hans søn Amador, der på det givne tidspunkt, var på vej ind i voksenlivet. Savater ønsker at give sin søn råd til at klare livet, til at blive en ansvarsbevidst borger og et godt menneske, hvilket han gør igennem denne bog. Han fortællinger spænder helt fra de små termitter i Afrika, til den Første Mosebog og til nazi-kaptajnerne i de tyske koncentrationslejre. Bogen er let skrevet, selvom den behandler nogle af de vigtigste emner her i livet, og kom til mig på et passende tidspunkt. Efter at have kæmpet, og tabt kampe, mod forfattere såsom Thomas Mann, Kafka, Nabokov og Dostojevskij, fandt jeg tilfældigt denne bog på det lokale bibliotek. Dens detaljeret, interessante og yderst smukt dekorede forside, var et blikfang for mine øjne på vejen ud. Jeg endte med at låne den med hjem, så kunne den i det mindste se pæn ud på mit natbord. Dette viste sig at være en god beslutning. Bogen omhandler primært det brede emne: frihed. Savater gør en dyd ud af, at fortælle os, og hans søn, om vigtigheden ved at værdsætte den frihed vi har som mennesker, som f.eks. mineraler, planter og dyr ikke har; de gør kun det de er programmeret af naturen til at gøre hvor......
