So here is our group solution on carrying on Hawaiian culture is by doing festivals like the merry monarch. If we are able to make a festival on the Hawaiian islands or even on the mainland to inform everyone how important Hawaiian culture is. And making festivals is only one of our solutions on carrying on Hawaiian culture. But in order to have a festival you need to know a lot about Hawaiian culture and how they lived on the islands and the solution tools they used. So the other solution me and my group came up with was how to learn Hawaiian culture and how they used to do things back then.
I will attempt to shed some light on these questions, using the writings this week of Sahlins, Obeyesekere and Borofsky. I feel the most important question of the three is who can speak for a people, in this case, the Hawaiian people. In this week’s reading, How “Natives” Think, Marshall Sahlins is focused on the question of whether the Hawaiian people were “victims of magical thinking and their own traditions” (p. 1) when they perceived Captain Cook “as a manifestation of their returning year-god Lono” (p. 1). Historians tell us that white men were often viewed as superior beings and this view not only includes Cook, but Cortes as well. On the other hand, Gananath Obeyesekere’s writing, The Apotheosis of Captain Cook, is essentially an attack on Sahlins work and he makes the suggestion that the Hawaiian people deified Cook only after killing him.
Culture is seen to be a heritage that signifies who people are and these include language, religion, beliefs, norms, behaviors, and attitudes including social structures that guide everyday interactions. When moral standard and culture are in conflict, an amicable solution must be reached upon with tact and commitment. The party calling the other to accountability should be seen to be interested in resolving the conflict. I would think that just as workplace conflict is resolved by placing interests ahead of rights and power, so goes with whaling conflict. By placing emphasis on cultural heritage, people are seeking identity and mutual recognition, however; cultural distinctiveness can increase divisiveness and foster conflict.
Edelstein suggests many ways on how to increase the chances of making a military occupation a success. According to the author, the fundamental challenge of occupation is the potential of nationalistic minority groups driving up the cost of the occupation to an unacceptable level which would not only harm the efficiency but also make profits gained meaningless, therefore, to convince an occupied population not to resist the occupation and to grant the occupying power time is key. Such are only accomplished by overcoming the perception that the occupying power is a military conqueror, convincing the occupied population that the occupation will improve their lives, and assuring them that they will earn back their sovereignty one day. In other words, an occupying power must win the hearts and minds of the occupied population. Establishing law and order, supplying basic services and goods and refraining from the abuse of occupied populations are basic steps toward winning hearts and minds.
To what extent was the dictatorship by the Somoza family beneficial to the social development of Nicaragua? The Somoza family ruled Nicaragua for a 43 year period, from 1936-1979. Social development refers to changes brought about to a society that will uplift its people and the society as a whole will sense better opportunities for progress. Governments place policies and programs to achieve certain results in the development of a country. Education, healthcare, poverty are vital factors that affect the societies and the development of a country.
After we started teaching them these skills, we noticed that they would be writing letters and reading the textbooks that we printed for them. Some of the Hawaiians started recording some information about birthdays and deaths or the different things we practiced. I very happy I got the opportunity to come to these beautiful islands because I got to experience new things, meet new people, and I got to share my beliefs with others. This whole operation went smoothly because we got things done quickly and we got many more people to change their old ways. I will be returning home soon in approximately five and a half months, until then I wish you the best of
Hawaii will always be my home and there is no doubt in my mind that I will give back to Hawaii one day. Hawaii has always been the provider to my success, if I didn 't have this place to come home then I wouldn 't have my successes. I believe that it is a privilege to say I live in an amazing place like Hawaii. There are so many stereotypes in Hawaii that I 've been able to refute, such as the fact that Hawaii has statistically one of the lowest numbers when it comes to sending kids to college. I 'm ready to take on the bigger world and prove myself so I can give back to Hawaii.
They have been loyal for 117 years. They have asked to make it to become a state and it has good reason. They want to join the government and become apart of the legal system. Although it has a lot of debt it can bring a lot of money into the states that can be put to good use. Puerto Rico can be trusted to uphold the morals of the US government because they have as a territory.
My trip to Pearl Harbor was a pretty remarkable experience that I will always remember, not only did I learn more about the attack of Pearl Harbor itself but I witnessed the magnitude of an effect it had on the country. It was very humbling to be there, and to see the different ships and to walk into the museums and to talk to the staff. This trip did not change my life in a crazy way, but it did give me insight on patriotism and how much respect we have for fallen soldiers. My trip to Hawaii was less than a year ago and I knew going to Pearl Harbor was a thing we had to do. Walking to the entrance I noticed how clean everything was.
More importantly, I believe the writer was trying to give importance to Transcendentalist movement. Part of this movement was to create a more positive and liberal viewpoint, especially when it came to human nature. At the time, modern barriers needed to be broadened. Emerson wanted to expand and explore new paths and help guide people through life. The meaning of the new article was to inform
It has much to write about as historical significance because it involves America getting its independence from Britain and what that took. Also this topic can be expanded towards the signers personal lives and what they did to get where they are and how difficult it was for them to sign. This writing raises questions for me towards the atmosphere in the room when the Declaration was signed and also the personal lives of the individuals that signed. Also it could be written about why we needed independence, what it meant, and how it is celebrated today. I could also explore further what would have happened without a declaration and what did happen because of it.
