Glick says “Tuvalu, a small country in the South Pacific, has begun formulating evacuation plans.” However, Tuvalu is not the only area where evacuations are being held for the sake of increasing sea levels. Subsidence, a process of gradual sinking of an area of land, is helping to accelerate the rate at which Southern Louisiana falls below the average sea level calling for evacuations from time to time (Glick).

The presupposition was that the European race was to be considered superior to the rest of humankind. On the basis of these observations, the missionaries, who first arrived in 1900, formed their ideas about the Rwandan population, developed their missionary strategy, and inspired the political colonial regime that created the administrative structures in the twentieth century. This interpretation of Rwandan society by explorers and missionaries corresponds remarkably well to the popular local mythology found by missionaries, in whom the Tutsi are pictured as excellent, clever, and brilliant, the Hutu as lazy and inattentive, and the Twa as the official jokers. The Hutu majority were seen as native Rwandans, and the Tutsi minority were seen as nonnatives, and thus as intruders. This thinking has also been decisive in identifying Hutu and Tutsi over the course of time in the 1950s, extremist political parties, both Hutu and Tutsi, have explicitly referred to this historical ‘origin’ of Rwandan society.
