Following to the appearance to the Ritual Axe, the axe seems to be only made by wood and iron, but no jewelry were embedded. Although there was no jewelry or precious stones on the Ritual Axe, Owo was the most powerful kingdom in the eastern Yorubaland. Being a powerful kingdom has no effect on how the wealth or sources the artist could have. The artist of the artwork possibly chose to use a medium that was easily available to them, especially since any jewels, stones, or gold were limited to the area the Yoruba people were living in. The Yoruba people were not afraid to expand their territory to gain more opportunities for advance trade and to expand the areas for agriculture.
The main things that Native American and people today accept that it is a good thing to have could be the balance in the nature . According to the World on the turtle’s back story ,the twin brothers created balance to this world like Yin and Yang which you might often see in many Asian cultures .

On the other hand ,the right-handed twin who’s considered that he has a straight mind and always tell the truth ended up lying to his brother .
Cherokee & Yokut from the Beginning Native American tribes all have their own unique views of just how the world and civilization came to be. While some share similarities in their stories, others have a very different story to tell of how this world came to be. The Cherokee and Yokyut tribes are no different in that they have great resemblance, yet the tales are told through different contexts. The Cherokee tell of a world full of cold, vast and endless darkness (the great stone arch of the sky) where tiny creatures live within an area of the sky. Here the water beetle leapt off and discovered the water below, but the only ground was below the water.
In his classic essay Steel Axes for Stone Age Australians, the anthropologist Lauriston Sharp described how, among Australia 's Yir Yoront aborigines, only senior men knew how to make stone axes, and this allowed them to maintain their authority over women and junior men, who had to borrow an axe from a senior man whenever they needed one. However, missionary workers gave the aborigines steel axes, without preferring senior men over the others - indeed senior men avoided the missionaries and tended to lose out in the distribution of steel axes. This removed the basis of the senior men 's authority and led to a breakdown in the aborigines ' whole social order. Similar social transformations may have been triggered by the switch from stone to
As time wears on, everyday lifestyles of peoples around the world evolve and adapt. Mankind has encountered countless changes, one of the biggest being the switch from hunting and gathering to domestication and agriculture as methods of survival. This period of history is referred to as the agricultural revolution. One lifestyle overall surpassing the other is a highly argued upon topic. However, due to a greater diversity of foods available for consumption, a mobile lifestyle, and relative freedom from epidemic diseases that come from larger populations, hunting and gathering bands comparatively enjoyed a standard of living far superior to that of a Neolithic village dweller.
During the great depression, the midwest underwent a long drought. Exposed dry earth swept away with the wind and caused huge dust storms that prolonged the dry weather. With the lowered selling prices and the lack of crops the farmers had some major economic trouble. In Black Blizzard and John Steinbeck 's Grapes of Wrath, the literature develops the ideas of the poor distribution of wealth within the populations and the social aspects of people of different economic class. Social differences arise in the wealthy, the employed, and the unemployed throughout this period of hardship.
1. The ancient Egyptians who built the pyramids moved the massive stones by wetting the sand in front of a huge contraption that would slide on the wet sand. 2. It was believed that the stone blocks that made up the pyramids were made of carved limestone or concrete mixed with mud. 3.
While reading Ibn Fadlan’s reactions to the Viking Rus, it was apparent to me that no matter the point in time, bias and judgement over different cultures is always present. Ibn Fadlan views the “Northmen” in a similar way to some modern historians who use modern ideals when looking back at earlier times. Meaning that they incorporate knowledge and actions of their own culture when evaluating earlier cultures. At certain points throughout the text, it was easy to hear a sense of condescension and disapproval towards the Northmen’s life style. I expected more of an objective view from someone who has had very much experience with different peoples, and has travelled to various places throughout Eastern Europe.

The technology and intellectual accomplishments made by the Mesoamerican peoples have given the modern world tools and clothing, education, architectural information, and recording strategies. Tools and clothing are a major necessity of everyday life. (1)Francisco Hernandez, a Spanish naturalist, wrote in his notes about the Maguey plant and its many uses. Tools such as nails and tacks were made from the thorns of the Maguey plant. The leaves of the plants were used to make garments, thread for footwear, and cloth for the production of clothing.
