One interesting aspect about the Cherokee tribe is their different view on marriage and children. The wedding is a very special event and is informal most of the time. The couple gather at the womans household and exchange corn to symbolize their marriage and vows. After the ceremony ends, the man moves into his new wife’s family’s household. When married, the woman controlled the property and was the most dominant.
This occurs even more so if the view has religious faith. The advertisement is titled “God Made a Farmer”, giving credit for divine followers that the farmer is important because saintly people never question God’s judgement (So God Made a Farmer, 2013). Even if the viewer does not believe in God, it goes without saying that it takes a firm person, a devoted individual, and a hard worker to be a farmer. Dodge is etching on the emotion. They want us to trust their truck with the same level of trust that we put into the farmer – and for those of us who are religious, God.

In the case study the Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, Cha Koua Lee is the shaman who performed a healing ceremony for Lia. He brought his tools of the trade that consisted of a saber, gong, rattle, finger bells and a flying horse; these were all the tools that Shee Yee had used during his time on earth. During the sacrifice of the first pig, for Lia family (to safeguard and protect them throughout the year), the shaman did not kill the pig, in order to maintain a good relationship with the animal. One of the Lee’s cousin cut the pig’s throat.
Every month had at least one major religious ceremony honoring a god or gods. Most of these ceremonies were related to the agricultural season, the sowing of corn or the harvest of fruits. In almost all major ceremonies, an individual was chosen to impersonate the god, dressing as him or her. This person would be coddled as if he was the god until the time of sacrifice. 3.0: Aztecs believed that the way of keeping the sun strong for his battles against darkness was to offer him nourishment in the form of blood.
The passage Montag recalls later is Ecclesiastes 3. It says "For everything there is a season... a time to break down, and a time to build up... a time to keep silence, and a time to speak" (Ecclesiastes 3). This describes Montag's life in a way.

At the beginning of his life in the novel, he is breaking down the collection of books, but later he is building the collection and will hopefully use books to help rebuild the societies that are ruined physically and

Some of the other rituals that the author focuses on includes the, at least once a year, visit to the highly respected people, or “healers”, known as the holy-mouth-man, and the medicine men. Miner goes on to describe the barbaric sounding rituals that the Nacirema people experience when they visit each man respectably. For example, in the article, Miner explains how the holy-mouth-man appears to find happiness in causing people pain in their mouth when the man either drills holes into bad teeth or rips out teeth. Miner is astonished that the Nacirema people faithfully continue go back to these “healers” even when these “healers” seem to cause more pain for these people.
