Three main points that will be addressed will be when they first arrived to America. The consequences that were faced, and the conflicts they have experienced because of the change in religion. It isn 't always simple leaving traditions that have been in cultures for centuries, but the Hmong Americans overcame their obstacle and here we will learn how and why it happened. Hmong are traditionally Animist
Women in the Huron and Algonquian confederacies held authority to make decisions about the long houses, crops, and food consumption and distribution. This was because the Huron and Algonquian communities had matrilocal, matricentric and matrilineal practices. The egalitarian relationship between men and women was evident in the nuclear families in the community. The Jesuits were extremely critical of the wives’ disobedience to their husbands, as they believed wives should be subordinate to their husbands. According to the Jesuits, another problem with the nuclear family was a lack of punishment for the children.
In the late 1500s the Native Americans of the Great Plains got an amazing new tool that would change their place in the world for 200 years. That tool would bring them great wealth and many luxuries, but at the cost of great pain and suffering. That tool they called it the great mysterious dog, we call it the horse . The Native Americans would use this tool to explore ways to transport goods and people. As well as create an opportunity to encounter and exchange with the Spanish and French through trade.
In the late 1600’s, many European settlers arrived in North America in hopes of escaping the hardships they faced back home. America initially promised colonists the wealth, religious freedom, and escape from oppression they desired. New England was home to dense forests, and hills which was not optimal for crop growth. Therefore, the colonists directed their attention towards trade and commerce. The people in this region were devoutly religious and believed in the education of children.
“Amish Mennonites began migrating to Pennsylvania in the 18th century. This migration was a reaction to religious wars, poverty, and religious persecution on the Continent” (Hostetler). Soon the Amish community was growing and moving into other states, counties, and cities. Some of the Amish congregations stayed in Europe and merged with the Mennonites. The Mennonites are people that hold the same beliefs as the Amish people, but are less conservative (Patton).
Many people looked at the land to the West, what we call today Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, as possible land for settlement. But the Americans were also thinking about moving into this land. If the BNA colonies unite, then they could claim this land as their own before the Americans arrive. To conclude, the years leading up to and including 1867 was a historic time for our great nation. Not only did we become a country and celebrate annually on July 1st, but brought colonies together for a common goal by eliminating Political Deadlock during the Great Coalition.
The Great Awakening gave many people religious revival in the colonies and was occurring during the 1700’s and in the Salem Witch trials, there was people being accused of witchcraft . Great awakening caused religion to become diverse throughout all the colonies and was the first movement that actually unites all the colonies as a whole. Salem witch trials in Massachusetts made changes in our court system due to realizing the case of one person having too much power. It also created the separation of church , and can also be seen today in unifying the country with a due process agreement throughout the country. In the 1700’s the Halfway Covenant was seen as a religion devotion decline and the Maryland Toleration Act of 1649 where it guaranteed toleration to all Christians.
With the Portuguese in Indonesia, they converted many people into Christians and Catholics. In fact, “the Portuguese introduced Roman Catholicism to Indonesia” (Religion in Indonesia). After the Portuguese conquered Malacca they went looking further and found the land where the Sultan of Ternate lived. In this area, many of the Portuguese priests decided to stay there. “In 1534 to many following years, Portuguese priests were active into converting the people there into Catholicism” (Christianity in Indonesia).
Like most pre-modern eras of history, medieval Europe was essentially a man’s world. It was no secret that the roles of women in medieval Europe were distinctly defined as subservient and oppressed beings. Most women were limited to house chores and the bearing and rearing of children. How much autonomy they had was dependent on their status or whom they married. Noble women had no more rights than their peasant sisters who tended to livestock and planted vegetables on the farm.
While British colonist sought out a more peaceful and coexistence with the Native Americans. This early decision that both the Spanish and the British colonist had to make about their relationship with native peoples affected every part of their lives including architecture of cities, economy,
I must start off by saying I found these two chapters very interesting and I feel as if I learned a lot. That being said, issues that are raised with me was that I had no idea that Europeans had such a big impact on the Native American religion. Native Americans arrived on North American continent 15,000 to 20,0000 years ago. Since that time they have lived in nearly every section of America. With the changing of the continents came the different lifestyles and drastic climate changes.
English women were what Native Americans called “spoiled.” They did not work but instead spent their time attending the house receiving an education and sewing. They generally did all of their work for the benefit of the family, and not the outside world. “Women’s Work” would have included such activities as spinning, weaving and churning. In contrast, in the Native American culture, women were the workers of the tribe. Native American women in the southern colonies not only worked the fields but also attended to the house and the children.
