A buffalo is a very important to the first Nations that's why it is displayed on my first stamp. First Nations used the buffalo for very significant things one of the most important thing was for food. They made a special traditional food called Pemmican witch is dried buffalo smashed together with flour and berries. The first nations needed buffalo to survive but sadly the buffalo was rushed away when the Europeans showed up and took over the First Nations land and that when the treaty 1 started. The numbered treaties is displayed on my stamp because Canada and the First Nations needed to agree on land but these two group of people used land very differently.
Where Jacobson works with animalistic symbolism, Morrisseau expresses the Ojibway worldview within his work through the use of narratives. Morrisseau’s grandfather Potan was known as a Midewinini and Jissakan, a shaking tent seer, and was well versed in the traditional stories and teachings of his people. One aspect of the Ojibway world view is the importance of narrative, which was told by the elders of the community. These narratives “were instrumental in teaching about history and morality. The Ojibwa narratives were used to pass on knowledge,” (Wobodistch, 15) This oral tradition that was meant to carry on the wisdom of one generation to the next.

My Totem Pole A totem pole is a colossal log carved mainly by the indigenous people of Alaska and British Columbia. These poles tell stories that have been passed down from generation to generation as legends and myths. However, that is not the only type of totem pole, there are totems that tell the carver’s history, their family’s history and a few are even used to honor the dead. Additionally, multiple totem poles were made to show respect to important tribal members. Totem poles feature animals and symbols, chosen by the carver to represent themselves, another person, or an event.
The Navajo and the Modoc: Mythological comparison In the myths “When Grizzlies Walked Upright” and “The Navajo Origin Legend”, we get a glimpse of the beliefs of traditional Native American societies. The former myth is one told by the Modoc tribe of Oregon, the other is told by the Navajo tribe of the American Southwest. The different uses of animals, spirits, and women’s roles help create an illustration of society before colonization. These myths do also differ on these themes and on how they are presented. These myths show that these tribes were more different than alike.
When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die. Odysseus didn 't even ask his crew whether they should do it or not because Odysseus made it seem like their opinion wasn’t important and didn 't matter.

Odysseus deserved to return home from his journey after 20 years because it was mostly his fault. If Odysseus had told his crew about everything like why not to eat the cattle or to not open the bag of the unfavorable winds, his journey wouldn 't have taken 20 years.

He lived the rest of his life in nightmares and fears which denounced his actions. He realized how unscrupulous his actions were and his souls is long huanted by it.
