Mankiller’s autobiography is Mankiller is writing about herself and she is writing about her personal experiences that help develop her thoughts and actions in life. She also writes about the history of indigenous people and the “Indian Island.” The last thing that was included in the autobiography was Mankiller expresses her feelings and thoughts.

While she was fulfilling the legal need to consult them, she also address that this was a significant experience . She gives a personal experience in order to say, that while she is a Native, she has fallen short in her job as an archeologists. She wants her fellow coworkers to understand that while the profession needs to improve the relationship between both the native peoples they are working with, and the culturally important artifacts, they can do so by trying.

Kira Salak once said “ If a journey doesn't have something to teach you about yourself then what kind of journey is that.” Expeditions place one in very uncanny situations to test their capabilities. While being put through their ordeals they improve their competence in the areas of that require refinement. These changes help them with their ability to accomplish their initial goal that caused them to expedite and give a deeper insight into themselves. A journey has many reasons to take place but the longing for home and the conquest for the truth about oneself spearhead such expeditions,often improving the rational, physical and metaphysical makeup of a person to be more synchronized and poised, as seen in Kira Salak the author and protagonist in the “The Cruelest Journey” and in the epic poem The Odyssey by Homer. Odysseus was one to be driven purely by his urge to return home through his long voyage where his rational and physical abilities were sharpened.
Culture can help us build a community that involves people who have the same beliefs and agree on certain subjects. However, culture can also create discrimination and otherness. Sometimes, we “other” people just because we do not understand their culture or because their beliefs are different from ours. The act of “othering” can often lead to conflicts or misunderstandings. So we have to ask ourselves, is there a way for us to preserve and respect a culture without othering
The cognitive approach to archaeology comes to archaeologists as a result of the New Archaeology movement, aiming to look how and why certain cultures and subcultures did what they did. Looking at the archaeological record can tell a great deal about the material aspect of the culture being studied; however, we are able to paint complex pictures of how they lived, what their environment looked like, and why the made these artifacts. The cognitive approach
Another good way would be for the constituents to be provided with a guided tour of the facilities by someone who has the knowledge of both what the location contains and what the needs are to help keep it operating as it has done and if there are enhancements required the reasoning behind it. The reason I chose these methods is because most people want all the information that can be gathered before committing themselves to making a donation. In this manner, the historical and future information would be provided in writing as well as giving the prospective constituents a manner of being able to socialize with other donors and people who have use of the facilities. I wasn’t able to find anything stating exactly what type of strategies are being used to maintain their current funders or to entice new constituents to give to their organization. As I sought out information, I was only able to locate via their website a link that led to supporters and the different manners in which a person could make a donation such as, their annual fund, corporate sponsorship, in-kind donations, foundation support, legacy
I want to do something to help my community to make a difference and be remembered, to be someone who my parents are proud of.

The rituals continue to be accepted because of their importance to the history and tradition of the two groups. In both writings, the people are raised to believe in these concepts, so that when they are able to make decisions and judgements for themselves, these younger members of society have no reason to not follow along with the customs. 3. What is my topic (unifying idea), and how did I arrive at it? The unifying idea of the quotes is blind adherence to traditional ideas and beliefs, even when these concepts are not always substantiated or morally right.
I felt that I could help these people out by providing them with a way to help them better these situations through gaining employment. This compassion came back to stab me in the back when it came to their work ethic or ability to get to work as well as other situations that would arise. It was a tough lessen to learn that me trying to help these people when I was the one who needed them to help me was doing no one any good. This interview made me more intrigued to learn more about Shamanism and Alberto Villoldo’s ideas on Shamanism. Other things I found from the movie that I want to know more about would be the Bullet Proof Diet and more in depth of how our family history situations can affect us through the field now.

Knowing that I changed that life, that because of me hopefully their health will better instead of worsen. Through this program I hope to learn from the community, to learn their experiences, which will allow me to be even more conscious of the disparities they are forced to face, hence causing me to ponder “how can this issue be fixed?”, “what policy can be implemented”?.

Not only will I be able to learn from the community, but from my fellow peers, medical students, high school students, and other undergraduates as well. Getting to me mentored by people who have done what I want to do will be enriching, it’ll be an experience that ill cherish forever.
