The Maasai and Kikuyu are two, very different tribes from the East African countries, Tanzania and Kenya. Before reading this essay, some would probably think that they are very different, but if you are one of those people, I hope that after reading my essay, you will change your mind. What are the reasons for the differences between traditional Maasai and Kikuyu cultures? I would give a short introduction on both tribes, so people get a better idea of who they are and what you are talking about. Examples- Where they live, what kind of tribe they are (nomadic?
From their sumptuous capital at Cuzco, the Incas conquered and subordinated societies over much of the Andes and adjacent regions after 1438. The Hohokam culture came after the Native American people. One of the Hohokam characteristics was their improvement of irrigation canals. The improvement in these canals allowed the culture to have two crops per year. The communities were linked with canals that allowed for the plantation of crops.
White Americans loathed the Indians because they were “undeserving” of the fertile land they had. White settlers wanted this land so bad they burned down house and towns, stole animals and lived in land that didn’t belong to them. They tormented the native Americans for decades and then the state governments started passing laws to strip the Indians of their rights. In two separate cases, (Cherokee
They started to steal farmers and ranchers cattle and some cases they would also burn ranches down. They would raid; wagon trains, miners, and settlers that were traveling through the Indians territory or settling the
Causes and Effects of the Rwandan Genocide Introduction Wikipedia defines Genocide as the “systematic destruction of all or a significant part of a racial, ethnic, religious or national group”. During one of humanity 's darkest periods, a tragedy that spanned one hundred short days, triggered in April 1994 and summarily ended in July of the same year witnessed the senseless eradication of approximately eight hundred thousand of the minority Tutsi tribe’s men, women and children, all citizens of Rwanda. Class distinction is cited as one of the main reasons for this genocide, the Hutu majority mistrusted the Tutsi minority who were seen as elite members of society. This distinction became more pronounced shortly after World War One when the Belgians assumed control of Rwanda. They were instrumental in growing the tensions between the Hutu and Tutsi tribes by rewarding Tutsis with Western education and denying Hutus any economical and political powers to the Hutus.
The Senegalese (colonized by French) economy was focused on exporting cash crops to France, while in Kenya (colonized by British) Africans worked on tea and coffee plantations. The farmers of Mozambique (colonized by Portugal) were forced to grow cotton for export to Portugal. In addition, they were forced to sell large amounts at low prices, which lead to a shortage of crops in Mozambique, thus more famines would be seen under colonial rule. Overall, you can see the similarities in how European powers exploited the African Continent for their own
The cultural differences and control over resources between Native Americans and Americans led to a long journey of Native Americans relocating west due to their land being illegally confiscated from them. The overgrowing population of Americans was the cause of the unjust and inhumane treatment of Native Americans in order for them rapidly expand their culture. Still, Native Americans continued to protect their common title of their land and preserve their existence until thousands of them were forced to move west because Americans didn’t follow through with their agreements, taking away their nation and their spirits. “Both congress and the states were eager to make the lands of western tribes available to American citizens, but none had
The third stage of acculturation involved a new resistance against colonialist for liberation and independence (Magubane,1971). ‘Us and them’ in Zambia relied on cultural contact and, as before the colonialist came to Zambia, most of the tribes were homogenous in beliefs and as a result the colonialists saw them as tradition bound primitives (Ferguson, 1999). Attire played an important part in differentiating between ‘us and them’, as both the Europeans and the natives wore completely different clothes. It is arguable that nobody
since privatization was pushed upon everyone. In the U.S. privatization has become a major factor in the country we are today, as it has affected us in a positive way as opposed to the Maasai, where privatization has made most of them poorer because they have had to go through many cultural changes from food to farming and the division of land. The changes are different in that the U.S. was positively affected while the Maasai were negatively affected as mentioned earlier. The Maasai have had to change most of their lifestyle choices when it comes to land, food and the transition from livestock to farming, while the people of the U.S. have not had to completely alter the way they obtain food and land, as well as farming and livestock. The Maasai will probably never touch the ideas of popular culture because of the culture shock that would occur, since the Maasai still maintain their main rituals and beliefs, such as having hunter-gatherers in the
