Wadley’s Behind Mud Walls: Seventy-Five Years in a North Indian Village is an insightful view into another culture. As an audience member who lives in a country where changes are created quickly and numerously, it was surprising (at first) how the villagers of Karimpur resisted change to their way of life. Though this reviewer is familiar with the concept of having landlords, she was surprised how Karimpur did not belong to the people but rather the landlords. It was also a surprise in how quickly children caught on to their social status. For example, in questing a villager about why a bhangi could not attend school with the other boys in the village, the Sahib got this
The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources. The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
Dahl thinks of Mdisho as his little brother and, Major Griffiths like an older uncle, but I 'm here to talk about how they are different not how they are similar.

The first stage in grief is denial, when a person hopes that the breakup was not real or only momentary, giving themselves time to adjust to the situation. When Okonkwo arrives at Mbanta, his mother’s homeland, his uncle holds a meeting with his family and specifically addresses Okonkwo. He tells of how after a child has been beaten by its father, it will go to its mother for comfort. He relates this to Okonkwo’s breakup with his tribe, where Okonkwo is beaten or exiled from his fatherland and sent to his motherland to recover. His uncle asks him,”Is it right that you, Okonkwo, should bring to your mother a heavy face and refuse to be comforted?”(Achebe 134).
In the essay “Newfoundlandese, If You Please,” Diane Mooney argues Newfoundland is made up of many different dialects dependent on what region you are in. She backs up her claims by sharing her observations and experiences from her travels throughout the province. In the essay printed by Pearson, Toronto Mooney believes that the different dialects are because of the various nationalities of the early settlers.

Bruce Pascoe in the excerpt titled, ‘Lake Corangamite’ from his book ‘Convincing Ground’, narrates his journey to Lake Corangamite, whilst taking particular note of the way Australians recognize the Indigenous people but do not fully respond respectfully to their nation’s history. The excerpt begins with Pascoe noting how Aboriginal names and terms have been widely used, yet there is still a ‘bleakness’ (Pascoe 74) present. He then goes on to recount his initially unsuccessful luck with gaining information about a particular house with distinctly holed walls. After several attempts, Pascoe is finally able to be let in to photograph the house and is told briefly that ‘the settlers had a lot of fights with the Aborigines’ (Pascoe 75). The conversation ends short there.

Portraits through photography has changed throughout history from an indoor studio to the great outdoors. In portrait photography, David Bate considers four major visual conventions that includes the face, pose, clothing, and location to rely ideas about the self that communicates the character, personality, and social standing (Bate 73). Portraits from George Nadar’s Sand and Emmet Gowin’s Ruth and Mae are examples of experimentations through tools and decisions that has lead to represent a social identity and innovation in portrait photography.

Robert Bone’s The Regional Geography of Canada versus, John Warkentin’s A Regional Geography of Canada: Life, Land, Space In both Bone’s The Regional Geography of Canada, and Warkentin’s A Regional Geography of Canada: Life, Land, Space the methods used to look at the province of British Columbia are different.

When learning about a new aspect in life, no matter what it was, logic suggests that we should refer to the main resources to impart from. Morrisseau played a great role in being one of the recent resources on the nature of the Aboriginal Canadian Tribe – the Ojibwa – that people refer to, to know more about the indigenous culture that lived in the Anishnaabe region. This had been evidenced by the fact that his paintings were not hung in museums for their artistic value, but rather for their ethnographic worth. Morrisseau documented the culture from many perspectives and aspects thoroughly, which is illustrated on actions of different authorities (museums and schools) to refer back to his work. He was the only artist for the "first solo first solo exhibit of an Aboriginal person 's art in the history of the National Gallery of Canada" .
pg 134). He talks about how a political party in Quebec was formed using constitutive rhetoric. The party used constitutive rhetoric to create a new identity for its people and separate from the rest of Canada. This theory of rhetoric creates a message in which the audience is the primary interpreter of the text and creator of identity. This demonstrates the connection between constitutive rhetoric and identity.
The Red Couch Tour has a strong influence on Canadians and conveys a clear message through these different stories. The main artifact is a red couch with the Canada’s 150 maple leaf logo; and the location of the red couch placement is close to the ‘empty space’ of Canada. The secondary artifact is the invited Canadians who story tell about Canada’s past time and identities. The meaning of the artifact is more than what meets the eyes; this event develops on the theme of unification, storytelling and cultural nationalism. These theme is described from this quote, “Instead of going to peoples’ living rooms, we’re taking it to them.
