Abuse in the Aboriginal Residential Schools in Canada & The Mushkegowuk Cree of Fort Albany, Ontario
[ send me this report ]
This is a 10 page paper discussing abuse in Aboriginal residential schools in Canada and in particular that in Fort Albany, Ontario. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries in Canada, the federal government in partnership with a number of religious organizations ran over 130 “residential schools” for Aboriginals. Originally intended to promote the assimilation of the Aboriginal people within white society, by the time the majority of the schools closed in the 1960s and 1970s, it soon became obvious that in addition to religion and education being promoted within the schools, so too was a horrific amount of physical and sexual abuse being performed. Generations of Aboriginals who passed through the schools have suffered a great deal from the abuse and are trying within their own communities to heal from their ordeals. The federal government in addition to providing funding to aid in the healing programs has also released a formal Statement of Reconciliation and several actions plans for the communities. The Mushkegowuk Cree of Fort Albany, Ontario is one such community affected by the horrors experienced in their residential school. Ste. Anne’s residential school in Fort Albany run by the Roman Catholic diocese has not only be accused of hundreds of cases of physical and sexual abuse but was also known for its use of a home-made electric chair with which it punished and tortured its students. In addition to a number of legal claims against those who ran the school, the community has also undergone a recent rejuvenation process which has included the renovation of the old school in addition to the building of a new educational complex where the children do not have to leave their families for their education; one of the many needed steps for healing. Some tutorial language is used throughout and inserted with square brackets to assist the customer with the writing process. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

African American Religious Beliefs On Death And Dying

This essay reports the comments and discussions of a number of persons who belong to this racial community and/or who have studied the topics. There are some core beliefs that may be practiced by many of the black population, such as spirituality, the circle of life and the collective decision making process. These are explained and discussed. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Agricultural and Architectural: Commonalities of Locorotonda, Bari, Italy & the Amish of Pennsylvania

Alzheimer's And Cultural Anthropology
[ send me this report ]
7 pages in length. Within the fundamental framework of human culture exists a dichotomy of anthropological applications that ultimately form man's existence and outlook. These divergent elements help bring to light the very essence of what it means to be part of a particular society based solely upon one's cultural understanding. It is important for the one to understand that there exist myriad philosophies by which people live their lives. These philosophies help maintain order and a sense of direction that otherwise would merely drift in subconscious thought, which also helps to apply a modicum of understanding to the concept of meaning. These fundamental principles of cultural anthropology provide the concepts of how people incorporate certain occurrences throughout their daily existence. The relationship that exists between Alzheimer's and cultural anthropology clearly illustrates the manner by which one's physical existence is often dependent upon the constricting components of culture. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

America Is No Longer A Melting Pot
[ send me this report ]
5 pages in length. It has long been said that the United States of America is a vast melting pot of various races, religions and heritages that make it one of the most culturally diverse populations in all the world. This blending of such culture has been credited with bringing societies closer together and allowing people to understand and accept other lifestyles other than their own. The writer discusses why this is no longer true; that while America may still house the greatest variety of peoples, it is no longer an educational or cultural melting pot.

American Culture/The Changing South
[ send me this report ]
A 6 page essay that draws on an essay, "What is Happiness?" by John Ciardi. The writer argues that "happiness" has always been part of the American Dream. However, as John Ciardi in his essay "What is Happiness?" points out, this term has proven difficult to define. At one point in the culture of the Southeast, "happiness" was equated with the perpetuation of a culture that was seriously flawed. In the nineteenth century, southeastern portion of the United States had a distinctive culture that differentiated it from the rest of the country. The writer outlines some of the characteristics of Southern culture and relates this to Ciardi's essay. No additional sources cited.

An Anthropological View of Oscar Lewis’ “The Children of Sanchez: Autobiography of a Mexican Family”
[ send me this report ]
A 5 page overview of the lives and circumstances of five members of a poor Mexican family in Mexico City in the 1960s. Plagued by poverty, the challenges of living in the corrupt and unpredictable environment of one of the world’s largest cities, and just the incredibly fragile relations which occur within a typical family, the Sanchez family walks on tedious grounds in most aspects of their daily lives. This paper examines the attitudes of each of the family members from an anthropological perspective and attempts to answer the question as to whether it is fate that shapes their lives or their own actions. The author also points out that Lewis’ anthropological method is now considered outdated and possibly even deleterious by contemporary anthropologists. No additional sources are listed.

Analysis of Three Articles about Kush History from the 25th Dynasty in Egypt until their Concentration in Meroe
[ send me this report ]
This is a 7 page paper discussing three articles on Kush history from the 25th dynasty in Egypt until their concentration in Meroe. The history of the Kush of Nubia is recounted in three articles by Helen Chapin Metz, Claude Rilly and Noah Kippley-Ogman. The Kush were concentrated in Nubia until the expansion of their strength and influence eventually led to them conquering Egypt around 750 B.C. and ruled during the 25th dynasty until approximately 656 B.C. At this time, they were invaded by the Assyrians which led to their retreat to Napata and eventually Meroe. Once concentrated in Meroe, the Kush became a major trading force based on their central location and production and trade of their own iron. Eventually however, the Kush became weakened through the exploitation of their own resources which led to the loss of their farming industry and the end of the Roman empire which reduced trade along their route. Meroe was eventually conquered by the Axumite army A.D. 350 thus ending their independence. Metz, Rilly and Kippley-Ogman provide slightly different perspectives, details and areas of concentration in their articles which provide readers with an overall history of the Kush but are not necessarily consistent in the details of each era of the Kush. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
