The next three paragraphs will be about the following topics: the differences in the Inuits, the differences in the Iroquois and the similarities between the two. Inuits ( differences ) This paragraph is about the differences of the Inuits. One difference, is that the Inuits live in a tribe and they stay together. While, the Iroquois can live in one of the six nations which are: Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca. For example, the Inuits live in a village
The most noticeable difference between Yup'ik culture and Aboriginal culture, is the clothes that they wear. Yup'ik culture originated in western, southwestern, and southcentral Alaska, and even the Russian Far East, all of these having extremely cold weather conditions. By using animal skins, such as seal skin and caribou skin, the Yup'ik people created footwear (boots), gloves, pants, and mainly parkas. These were held together by animal bone, and odd things like crane feet and thread made from parts of animals. This clothing was a vital aspect of survival for them,
Even to this day their lives continue to evolve around the polar bear, caribou, fish, seal, whale, and walrus. The vast Alaskan land is the host to their communities, and the northernmost areas, along with the extreme climate, rather than being a barrier for survival, is a natural realm for birds, fish, mammals, and natural resources. These populations place a great value on bartering and family connections, both of which rely on respect and communication. Labor is divided by gender, and competitions and strength and resistance games, along with song duels, are part of traditional culture. Habitation also tends to be underground, which helps in trapping the cold air out of the premises.
The Cree Indians originated in North America. This very large tribe lived in many locations. Some including the Rocky Mountains and throughout Atlantic Coast. Some even resided and hunted Canada, heavily populating the provinces of Quebec and Saskatchewan (indians.org pg.n) Cree Indians ate many different foods. Meat, fruit, and vegetables were all very common in a Cree diet.
They would make their clothes with furs from animals like polar bears, rabbits, and foxes. Food was hard to find, they could not live in the same place all the time. They had to keep moving, following the animals. The caribou was the most important, it provided food and warm fur to make clothes. They rubbed noses to say hello instead of shaking hands.
The Mariam-Webster dictionary defines culture as “the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a group.” Though the majority of Canadians (over 90%) live within 100 miles of US-Canada Border, there are many stark contrasts in culture between the United States (US) and their neighbors to the North. Possessing some general knowledge and culturally awareness of any foreign territory will prove useful when adapting or visiting, this holds true the in the country of Canada. Examining key components of Canada, such as the citizens, government, military and general history, will help to understand the unique features of their culture. It is very important to be aware of different country’s cultures and walks of life. Although Canada is in some ways very similar to the United States of America there are some major differences that will be examined in the proceeding paragraphs.
The Penobscot hunted beavers, otters, moose, bears, and caribou. The Penobscot were also skilled canoe builders, but they used a different method than the Chinook. Penobscot canoes were made using birch bark instead of a hollowed tree
The story of the creation of man, animals, and the universe is one that is unique to each culture and group of people. Though American Indians are often lumped into one category, there were in fact many different and unique cultures and communities within this category. The Algonquin and Comanche are two such tribes who lived in different parts of the Americas with very different cultures. Although the creation myths of the Algonquin and the Comanche are similar, there are some marked differences that show the understanding of a higher power and the unique differences among their cultures. Algonquin Tribe The Algonquins are among a group of American Indians who are linked to each other through the Algonquin language (Our Proud History, 2013).
“I’m talking about Canada as a state of mind, as the space you inhabit not just with your body but with your head. It’s that kind of space in which we find ourselves lost” (Atwood, 18). This statement said by Margaret Atwood is definitely the best way to bring attention to the use of Canadian Literature in classrooms across Ontario. While good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should be putting more focus toward Canadian writers. For these students, they need to become more familiar with our own literature, despite being surrounded by other cultures.
The Geography played a critical role in the lifestyle of the area's First Peoples. The Eastern Woodlands was quite diverse in terms of geography, as it stretched across a large portion of Eastern Canada. It also includes: The region extending from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Mississippi River in the west and from Canada in the North
The Canadian legal system has almost complete control over Indigenous land and civil rights. Throughout history, Canada has been back and forth regarding Indigenous policy. Canada has had little to no regard over Indigenous rights and policy was mainly based on the goal of assimilation and colonization. Moving forward, there has been an improvement in Indigenous policies and the government regarding Indigenous issues. In regards to the Marshall Trilogy, St. Catherine’s case, the Lavell-Bedard case and the Daniels v. Canada case, the courts had at times put up a fight but Indigenous people fought for their rights sometimes winning and sometimes losing the battle.
