After migrating to the Congo they made their home on the Lualaba River. There were over 150,000 Songye people divided into at least 35 different subgroups. They were ran by a chief, also known as the Yakitenge, who was helped by various different secret societies such as the Kifwebe association. It is believed that “the creator god of the Songye is Efile, although sacrifices are not made directly to him.

The Cherokee People The Cherokee people have been around for years prior to European invasion and colonization. By the time of European contact, the Cherokee spoke multiple dialects and were spread over a vast area of land (Sturm, 2002, p. 30) As per Indians.org, the Cherokee people are a North American Indigenous group of Iroquoian descent. Originally from the Great Lakes region, a migration to the east coast had taken place. The tribes had lived in cabins and were in different sections.
At the time, different Indian tribes such as the Chickasaws, Creeks, and Cherokees had adapted a sedentary lifestyle and practiced small-scale agriculture. According to the proponents of removal, the Indians were to move westwards into forested lands in order to generate additional space for development through agricultural production (Memorial of the Cherokee Indians). The Act led to an array of legal and moral arguments for and against the need to relocate the Indians westward from the agriculturally productive lands of the Mississippi in Georgia and parts of Alabama. This paper compares and contrasts the major arguments for and against the
Hawaiians believed that Laka was demanded by her sister Pele to dance hula, then she started swaying gracefully to the sound of the wind and the ocean. After then “hula was practice as a sacred dance of a goddess and nature” (5). Every time hula is being dance, each movement that a dancer moves tells a story to anything, and it might be a surrounding, weather, or the changing of the tide. Hawaiian elders believe that the main purpose for hula is to “pass down their traditions, their history, and their religion to the coming generations to honor deity, local chiefs and important community members (6)”.

To the Indians, people owned what they made with themselves, including living areas, crops, and fishing spots. The Europeans were either given their land by the Queen, or they bought it from the original owners. European settlers wanted more agriculture on the land of New England.

Colonists released the animals into the wild so they could grow and reproduce.
When I questioned about them, I was told they were dream catchers. Mothers and grandmothers would make them for the children of the tribe and they would do exactly as their name implied: catch dreams. But not all dreams would be captured; only the nightmares to help put the children’s’ minds at ease. Made of willow hoops and sinew, the women would make a sort of web which was then placed over the beds of the children to trap the bad dreams. Once a child is born into the tribe, a dream catcher is made.
The Inca hunted small animals,such as deer, birds, frogs, and ducks. Inca women and children would go out and gather oca, achira, and arracacha.

This area runs from east to west along the Equator and is more than 6,000 km (3,700 m), Cameroon and Gabon are to the west, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Rift Valley are to the south. The capital of the CAR is Bangui and Brazzaville is the capital of ROC. This is the second largest rainforest in the world and covers most of the Congo River Basin and west coast of Africa (Haggett 2002). The Congo River is the second largest river in the world and runs along the borders of the ROC and DRC. For over a million years the Congo River has deposited rich mineral sandy sediments; however, the soil is poor due to the amount of rainfall that washes away the rich mineral deposits (Congo Republic Dashboard; Haggett, 2002).

In the post-Civil War South, the economic situation that followed the emancipation of slaves and therefore the loss of the labor force, forced the South to find a suitable replacement for slavery. This also meant enacting laws designed to keep former slaves tied to the land. The economic system, which replaced slavery, was sharecropping. To keep the former slaves tied to the land, however, laws such as the black codes ensured a steady stream of workers to harvest the crops. Furthermore, vagrancy laws, which were designed to punish vagrants by making them harvest crop for a plantation owner, were passed.
