The indigenous peoples of the Americas portray themselves as noble savages, guileless, and easy to dominate over. As for their cultures, their environment shapes what type of things they are best at. For example, if they were great swimmers, that meant that they were capable of fishing and bringing back food. In the readings Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca and Bartolome de la casas, it shows contrasting characterization of culture, personal lifestyles, and literature than from the other readings Otters Bare Tail and How the Rabbit got Its Long Ears. From a variety of different views, these stories analysis how the native americans transformed after the contact of the Europeans.
During the great depression, the midwest underwent a long drought. Exposed dry earth swept away with the wind and caused huge dust storms that prolonged the dry weather. With the lowered selling prices and the lack of crops the farmers had some major economic trouble. In Black Blizzard and John Steinbeck 's Grapes of Wrath, the literature develops the ideas of the poor distribution of wealth within the populations and the social aspects of people of different economic class. Social differences arise in the wealthy, the employed, and the unemployed throughout this period of hardship.
Companionship is like food; we need it to survive. Psychologists find that human beings have a crucial need for involvement in group life and a close relationship. This shows in many ways in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. Lennie and George are labor workers in California with a unrealistic long term goal of owning a house with rabbits. As they adapt to their new ranch, they experience many obstacles and meet new people.

While reading Ibn Fadlan’s reactions to the Viking Rus, it was apparent to me that no matter the point in time, bias and judgement over different cultures is always present. Ibn Fadlan views the “Northmen” in a similar way to some modern historians who use modern ideals when looking back at earlier times. Meaning that they incorporate knowledge and actions of their own culture when evaluating earlier cultures. At certain points throughout the text, it was easy to hear a sense of condescension and disapproval towards the Northmen’s life style. I expected more of an objective view from someone who has had very much experience with different peoples, and has travelled to various places throughout Eastern Europe.

Assignment 1: Reflective Assignment The Media has an immense impact on the psychosocial development in children (Canadian Paediatric Society, 2003). This is because they are “powerful teachers”, television shows like Sesame Street can provide important lesson and information to children on words, simple arithmetic, cooperation and other significant lessons (Canadian Paediatric Society, 2003). However, vice-versa is true as well, as such media platforms can produce stereotypes by portraying a group, race or other types of catalogs of identities with narrow ideas, like the Indigenous population. These stereotypes labels are thieves, uneducated, addicted to drugs and alcohol, criminals and more (Buzzfeed Australia, 2015).
Alcohol consumption is a common practice across the United States of America and several other countries in the world. Despite it being a shared practice in most parts of the world, heterogeneity in alcohol consumption among demographic subpopulations (gender and race) exists. Such heterogeneity is also true for health burdens and complications associated with alcohol consumption. This is especially true when the groups are segmented into gender and race. Gender is a very distinctive state with little to no middle ground.
