When the Spanish took over the Aztec capital city, Sepúlveda remarks of how the Native Americans were “oppressed and fearful at the beginning.” The Native Americans were seen as weak willed, for they barely resisted the conquest of their homes. If the Native Americans showed no incentive of retaliating and were better at manual work, it seemed natural to the Spanish that they be enslaved. The Native Americans, on the other hand, saw the Spanish in a different light as well as they watched many Spaniards become obsessed with gold. The Spanish were given Gold as gifts and went crazy just holding it and lusting for more, like savage monkeys. The Spanish, by nature, couldn’t help but become greedy monsters for gold, because in Europe riches were equivalent to power.
Then they would move to were their game went. When they were doing all that the learned how to plant crops corn beans, and squash. They lived near waterways then they became farmers they stared with other people neighboring groups.

Nomadic Indians moved from places to places nomadic family’s would build a house that would move very easily that could withstand any type of weather.
The lord was so boastful and self centered that he couldn't stand ugly things, even if they were pretty before, so he demoted people and hide possessions that were no longer magnificent. The beautiful, magnificent drake the lord had captured became dull and “ he refused to to release the drake, ordering that the cage be put out of sight so he would be no longer be annoyed by the birds sad appearance”. (10). His overwhelming desire for more beautiful items rule by his decisions in the empire. The lord's greed brought loneliness, anger, and the thought he has the power to rule over
Shelby I agree that Suzy is a major representation of a smoke signal; she conveys Arnold’s death and the type of life he lived to his son, to free him of his rage and hatred toward his father. However the title can also been seen as a stereotype within itself; natives gathered in tents or around a fire using smoke signals to communicate is a common stereotypical depiction of Native American culture among films and books. Whether smoke signals are an accurate portrayal of Native American customs or not, it was a form of communicating in times of danger or distress. It’s no accident that throughout the movie Victor and Thomas both struggle to communicate with each other and their community. Their ‘smoke signals’ were muddled and neither understood
Vonnegut also writes, “...to offset his good looks...he was required to wear at all times a red rubber ball for a nose, keep his eyebrows shaved off…” to create a picture of how the government creates absurd physical appearances to repel people. While Vonnegut uses humor, Bradbury uses suspense to create a dark atmosphere. One example is when Braling wants to put his clone away, but the clone responds saying, “ The cellar. I don’t like it. I don’t like that tool box.” Due to the dialogue, at this point in the story the reader can sense that the clone will go against his owner.
In addition, they loves to cook food in summer’s outside of their house for entertaining themselves.

Her somewhat unknown neighbor Mr. Harvey led Susie into this hutch and told her he just wanted to show it to her (Sebold 8).

In the beginning, Susie the narrator says she followed Mr. Harvey into the cornfield, to his hutch.
The unifying idea of the quotes is blind adherence to traditional ideas and beliefs, even when these concepts are not always substantiated or morally right. Each generation of Pilgrims is raised to believe in both God and adhere to the British Empire and its monarchy. These beliefs are highlighted in the compact by repeated documentations of the people being “loyal subjects” of the king and following “the Grace of God”. The villagers in “The Lottery” grow up witnessing and participating in the lottery by throwing rocks, so once they are old enough to draw the paper and understand the effects that the lottery has on the village, they are blind to its inhumanity. 4.
Living on the Fat of the Land Two men aspired to live the American dream. They dreamed of living on the fatta the land with livestock and other animals. There would be a few acres of farmland with a little shack, crisp air and green fields. In Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck uses animals to symbolize both success, and trouble. For instance, animals brought peace to Lennie until the death of his pup devastated his chances of following his dream; tending rabbits in his future.
Puno, a small city on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Gently eases it 's way into your soul. It doesn 't shout at you, but slowly shows glimpses of a world forgotten. Allows moments when even in the bustle, your heart leaps at the silence. Tourists and nature aren 't competing, but carefully dancing side by side in appreciation.
