The Indians and Europeans are divided but together in terms of how Europeans viewed Indians. In New World for All and in Dawnland Encounters, Calloway uses European writer Hector St John De Crevecoeur, to describe how Europeans thought of the Indians. De Crevecoeur said the Indians society had a “imperceptible charm for Europeans and offered qualities lacking in European society” (Calloway. 155). In other words, the Indians offered a new take on life for the Europeans as well as give them a new insight to a clear majority of things in the Indian society. In contrast to how Europeans viewed Indians, when a European “went native” they were looked at as a traitor and would receive cruel and unusual punishment for that crime they committed.
HEY YOU I NEED YOUR ATTENTION!!! Now that I obtained your attention, listen up! Right now you will be learning the differences and similarities about two Native American tribes. The first tribe is the Inuits, the second tribe is the Iroquois. In paragraph number one you will be learning two preposterous similarities between the Inuit & Iroquois.
When European explorers first discovered the “New World”, both the newly founded land,and the Native Americans that were effected in good and bad ways. When the Europeans first discovered the Natives, the explorers automatically assumed that they were superior or top class compared to them. Christopher Columbias states,(doc 4) “ Very handsome bodies and very fine faces. They ought to be good servants and of skill, for I see that they repeat very quickly whatever is said to them.” As you can tell from this quote, Columbias clearly thought thought of the Native American culture as a joke, and treated them as if they were animals.
European exploration of the West began in 1500 and continued to flourish for over three centuries. While colonizing this new land, Europeans first came into contact with the native peoples. European religious views, gender roles, and land ownership shaped their interactions with Native Americans. The English, for example, practiced Christianity, while the Native Americans possessed a more spiritual and animalistic religion. Native American societies were heavily reliant on women for not only household duties, but also agricultural responsibilities.
While some of the cultural norms and expectations varied slightly amongst the members of the Sioux, Navajo, and Cherokee tribes, it seems as though the cultural communicative behaviors and/or many of the norms and expectations were overall exceedingly similar across these three tribes. Thus, we feel that while culture may vary slightly across tribes through their rituals and ceremonies, cultural values and identities were more related and applied throughout the general Native American heritage, rather than being tribe
Some differences in the stories Iroquois and the Judeo Christian is having an almighty god. In the Judeo Christian story they believe that god created the heavens and the earth. Unlike in the Iroquois story where they believe that there is no almighty god and that the earth was made on a turtle's back. In the Iroquois story animals play a huge part starting with the two birds breaking Sky Womens fall. Also in a way they are viewed as a god or a power source.
The central focus of my learning segment is about the two Indians tribes the Algonquin and the Iroquois. The content will be focused on the two tribes, their way of life, where they lived, and their different cultures. The goal of the unit is to teach notetaking skills that will last well into their future. Each lesson will touch on a different aspect of the tribe and will have embedded note taking strategies. Read alouds will be used to model the note taking strategies for the unit.
Quite simply put, Europeans viewed Africans and Native Americans as inferior to themselves. They were considered to be heathens and barbarians by the Europeans. And, at least initially, they were not Christian. It was believed that Europeans could save both Native Americans and Africans not only spiritually but also economically and socially. This type of attitude also most likely made it much easier for the Europeans to discriminate and exploit them.
Imagine someone going up to you and saying " hey American person", even though the fact may be that you don 't wan to be called that. Throughout North American History, we have been labeling many different Native Americann groups by the same title and name, even though they may be completely differnt from each other. Each and every Native groups have their own history, culture, and way of life. It isn 't fair to call and label every ethnic Native group as simply Native Americans. Their are hundreds of different Native ethnic groups out there, with competly differnt lifestyles.
Walking down a street in New York City is an experience unto itself. From the colorful, diverse clothing to the different languages, there is always something new to see and hear. The clash of so many cultures is part of what makes New York City so fascinating. It is beautiful in its diversity and acceptance. No one enjoying the blur of cultures and languages can imagine the difficulties and horrors caused by the same diversity in cultures and languages elsewhere.
Of the many Native tribes, two of them were the Iroquois and the Cherokee. These two tribes had many interesting characteristics and ways of life. Some of which they share. In some ways, they differ. The Iroquois were located and lived in present-day New York, at the northeastern woodlands area.
North and South had economic, political and cultural differences. South economy was connected to cotton as vital staple. Cotton was very profitable and many slaves were needed to work on plantations. People that didn’t have enough money to invest on property move North for job opportunities. After the War of 1812 industrialization in the North expanded tremendously.
