According to Everell, Magawisca seemed “to embody nature’s best gifts, and her feelings to be the inspiration of heaven” (55). He starts to see that Magawisca truly represents some of the best traits a person can have. Everell learns just how strong, honest, and brave Magawisca really is. Magawisca’s feelings about the Pequod War were inspirational in its own way. Her experience inspired Everell to start to challenge what other colonists have told him about the Native Americans.
All of this led up to having most of my family and extended family moving to America. Which helped them get successful and gave them a better quality of life.

Australia is regarded as one of the most multi-cultural countries in the world so being a modern Australian means respecting our diverse cultural backgrounds, including indigenous Australians. The values of mateship, courage, selflessness, humour, hard work and persistence have all been present in all Australian stereotypes. This is because they were, and still are the most valued traits for Australians and as a result we are stereotyped as having these traits and idolise those who display these traits for everyone to witness. Australians still hold dear the values and the Australian way of life that we have always shared and are willing to protect it with our lives, as we have demonstrated many
While watching the film, The Kite Runner, I reflected on my own culture and values. I first realized there was a similarity between the Afghan culture and my own. When I was growing up, my father was the decision maker and leader of our family. While our patriarchal culture was not as strict as the one depicted in this film, I was surprised to learn that there was even a slight resemblance in our family roles. Since my own family was happily led by our father, I realized that other cultures probably feel satisfied with the patriarchal system as well.
1495, three years after Columbus's discovery of the new world, Maximo Zamoria, a Spanish conquistador, set off to the Americas in search of gold and glory.

In the year 1519, Spain set sail to be the first ones to circumnavigate the globe. Under the leadership of Ferdinand de Magellan, they were able to accomplish this monumental task by the year 1522, even though Magellan died before they journey was complete. In the article titled “Ferdinand Magellan 's Voyage Round the World, 1519-1522”, we are able to recall the accounts transcribed from the paper-book of a Genoese pilot who wrote detailed accounts about the events that transpired throughout the journey. Around 55 years after Spain’s voyage, the English set out to circumnavigate the globe under the leadership of Sir Francis Drake in the year of 1577. An article titled “Sir Francis Drake 's Famous Voyage Round The World, 1580” was written by Francis Pretty, who was one of Drake 's Gentlemen at arms.
Columbus returned home, whom is a hero from his first voyage, bringing back native Indians, mastic plants, aloe, lots of news and a sample of gold from his discoveries (Reyment n.p). Columbus had little difficulty in convincing his benefactors in Spain, King Ferdinand II, and Queen Isabella I, as it only took him about seven months to mount a second voyage. Back in the 1500’s, this was considered a huge undertaking. Seventeen ships were used for the voyage along with 1,500 colonists, livestock (horses, sheep, and cattle), seeds, tools for farming, as well as weapons for waging war were all embarked on the vessels (Hunter, n.p). All this was done quickly as the ships got under way on October 13, 1493, seven months after his return from the first
