He also analyzes at past research done by other linguistics who have studied Native American culture and language. The in-depth comparison of two Native American cultures, Haida and Tewa explain how the language assimilation occurs in their different communities.

Jenny Tone-Pah-Hote’s presentation focused on the development of art and dance in the Kiowa tribe of Oklahoma. Through the use of art and dance, the native american peoples of the Kiowa tribe have long explained their histories, told their stories, and created biographical accounts of their lives. These forms of expression made for the basis of the Kiowa culture and identity, centuries before extensive contact was made with the european colonists. Traditionally, the “kiowa ideal male” was a strong and independent warrior, which was replicated and shown by the native art. As times began to change, what it meant to “be a Kiowa” was also altered as norms began to shift.
Because “a concept that is easy to convey in one language may be impossible in another, simply because the vocabulary isn’t there” as stated in the interview Does Language Shape The Way We See The World? spoken by Guy Deutscher.

It took the subject of language and Genie’s case study and made me really think about how you can relate it to each side. For the nature side it shows how language is not something you are given but instead you acquire. Genie was able to make certain phrases because she heard that repetitively making her remember them. The doctors also tried helping her establish sentencings by having her identify objects and things verbally. This all is “nurturing”
A culture 's divine creator serves as a lens through which certain values and traditions can be contextualized. Writing samples from the Popol Vuh, Edward Winslow 's reflections on the first Thanksgiving, and the Puritan poetry of Edward Taylor give the modern reader insights into the characterization, role, and perception of the god(s) their respective societies worshiped. For instance, the animistic religions of the ancient Native Americans arose to interpret familiar environmental and cultural phenomena, using narratives that weave core creation myths with oral legends that explore themes of morality and the role of humankind in the natural world. Centuries later, European settlers would bring with them their own conception of the divine creator in which mankind, bound to a predetermined fate, exists to serve their god through strict adherence to his

In class we talked about many issues surrounding the Etruscans and our understanding of Etruscan societies based off of the ruins and artifacts that they left behind. At one point during class we discussed how temples were often built to accent a natural feature such as a stream, river, or a hill. We also discussed the differences between scared and non-sacred boundaries in Etruscan societies. I would like to look back on these discussions for a moment and contribute some new thoughts that I hadn’t necessarily worked out earlier In both the Edlund and the Warden articles they discuss how in Etruscan society everything was sacred and under “divine protection” and that there was no division between the divine and the earthly.
