I chose this theme because, in the book, passing traditions on is a major part of the characters’ culture. Passing traditions on is a practice that is important to many cultures and it effectively connects generations of people through experiences and stories. A quote from the book that demonstrates the theme, shows a character 's viewpoint of passing traditions on. “‘These are the beliefs of our Ojibway people. We sustain the beliefs, and the beliefs sustain us.
In addition to the deportations, approximately 30,000 immigrants were forcibly returned to their original countries over the course of the decade, this was predominately due to illness or unemployment. The number of people that left Canada compared to the people that came to canada, is hardly a percentage. This affects Canada greatly, as people are leaving, therefore taxes gained from the citizens decrease, and productivity of the work force decreases, as more people leave, less people are there to fill their roles in society (Encyclopedia). The dole was a small amount of support the government distributed to the poor and unemployed. The government relief was created for the citizens of Canada, as they were not producing enough income for their family.
After Hitler gained control over Germany, Germany lost 17,000 of its teachers. The reason Teachers were quitting at such a drastic rate was mainly due to the fact that they were getting a lot less money under the reign of Hitler. Before Hitler’s reign teachers would be paid 2,000 marks a year but when Hitler came into power teachers were only getting 1680 marks per year. To try and fix this problem the German government brought in unpaid substitutes that were willing to work for a very small amount of
The Chickasaws history, religion, social traditions, and way of life make them unique. This is what makes the tribe still relevant in today’s society. The culture and traditions of the Chickasaw helped to define the people’s everyday life in the past and present. For these reasons the Chickasaw will continue to be known for generations to
Respect isn’t always asked for but if you acquire it and or provide it, you will receive it. Respect is a very tremendous morality followed by a variety Native Americans. Elders always tell you to be respectful and Tunkasila (the creator) will award you. As being a Native American myself, I’ve been told to respect your elders, and your parents. Native Americans take great pride in their values, and ways of being.
11.5 million immigrants come into the United States every year. 13.5% of United States population are migrants that leave everything behind and their family to get there, and only 28% of foreign immigrants from Mexico make it to the United States every year. Additionally 64.5% of hondurans are living in poverty, according to The Immigration Policy Institute. Sonia Nazario demonstrates how the matter of immigration affects family values, causes discriminacion and more drug use. Many cultures around the world have different ideas about all of these subjects.
Cultural identity is one of the most important aspects of someone’s personality. That can be expressed through art, music, religion, and much more. Hayden Herra’s, “ Biography of Frida Kahlo “ , tells not only Frida’s life story, but also the compassion she showed to her culture. Another piece of writing that shows passion for their culture is Kristen Lee’s, “ Multiculturalism Explained in one word: HAPA “, Cultural identity provides a person with pride as shown through the exerpt of Hayden Herra’s, “ Biography of Frida Kahlo “, Kristen Lee’s interview about, “ Multiculturalism Explained in one word: HAPA “, and my own personal experience. Kahlo’s cultural identity was probably expressed everywhere she went.
My last cause of the white backlash is the forced integration. Federal troops remained outside the high school for a year, until integration was firmly established. From other schools there were also further resistance and 4 schools (including a Negro school) ended up closing during the 1958-1959 school year. A new plan of integration was then drawn up and in August 1959 the schools reopened. By 1963 only 100 of Little Rock 's 7000 Negro students were attending integrated
In “Of Plymouth Plantation” by William Bradford, Bradford stated, “. . . that in two or three months time half of their company died, especially in January and February.” This had impacted the colonists because half of the colonists died by diseases brought with them, being infected by scurvy, and from having no type of shelter or other comforts. The colonists barely made it through winter as they had assistance with all necessary aid by the six or seven people who were immune of diseases.
As I listened to the Riverbend scenario I thought of my own cultural competence and how at one time I knew very little of the Hmong culture. Working in a city where Asians make up only 3% of the population, this is a population I knew little about. I have learned that most Hmong are from the mountainous region of Laos, and are granted preferred refugee status by the U.S. (Cobb, 2010). From 2000 to 2010 the number of Hmong grew 40%, there are currently 260,073 Hmong people living primarily in California, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Even though the Hmong people seem to be prospering after thirty years in the U.S., there are still challenges with communication, understanding of cultural beliefs, and use of traditional medical practices (United States Census Bureau, 2013) In the Riverbend scenario, the novice nurse Jessica Jameson makes a quick assessment based on her level of understand on the Hmong culture and assumed that the young boy has been abused.
