Even when the Europeans came they learned to trade and new they had to get a hold of the newest war inventions so they didn't fall behind (gunpowder). The witnessing of the nuclear weapon awed and stuck fear within the Japanese people. I believe they had the realization that this was the start of a new age and to be on the frontier of this new age they would have to take a step back and learn.
Prior to China’s invasion in 1950, Tibet maintained a unique culture, religion and language for centuries. The country was first inhabited by modern humans 15,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest settlements in the world and although much has changed in Tibet since then, their culture and national identity has remained inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism since the 8th Century.

During the first half of the 20th century, the Japanese empire was at the peak of its power. Starting form 1910 up until 1945, the end WWII, Korea was being held by Japan as a colony. During this time, Japan and China entered The Second Sino-Japanese War that stared in 1937 and ended with Japanese surrender in 1945. These Japanese actions have had such an impactful effect on the people that it hurt, that films, such as Devils on the Door step and The Handmaiden, have even contemporary films express negative emotions to the long-lasting effects of the Japanese empire.

Typically, America is seen as the land of the free. Citizens have freedom of speech, press, assembly, and religion. Legally speaking, a person is entitled to the liberties mentioned above; however, they’re condoned if they do not conform to the values traditionally held by the majority Americans. For instance, everyone is free to practice any religion of their choice, but America is a predominantly Christian nation; therefore, those who practice a different religion are often victimized. In fact, John Oskison highlights America’s hypocrisy in “The Problem of Old Harjo”. In a country, where all are supposed to be welcomed and accepted, Miss Evan and Mrs. Rowell force Harjo to give up one of his wives in order to be accepted into church. Instead of taking the time to build a relationship with Harjo and attempt to understand why he has two

The Powhatan lived in the Virginia territory. The area that they lived in was called Tsenacommacah. Each of the tribes in the Powhatan nation had their own Weroance also know as chief; but had also paid their tribute to Powhatan. They interacted and intermingled with the Jamestown colonists, thus some of the Powhatan descendants still live in Virginia today.

The area of the Khina culture is a plateau region in the mountains, surrounded by slopes and lots of rocks located in central Africa. The group living in the region is a pastoralism/early agriculture-based society, needing to grow food and collect supplies to prepare and cultivate their crops. It has been well documented that the transition into agriculture was very hard on humans as a whole, all around the world, and this would have been no different living where the Khina people lived. While little formal and recent archaeological excavations have been done in the area, the ethnographic record with recorded accounts from around the 1920s is extensive and provides a lot of information about what could be expected in an excavation of the area
Elliot Guereca & Gustavo Sanchez 6th Period Japanese Imperialism in Korea “ Japan saw itself as having to protect Korea from foreign countries” During the 18th and early 19th century the world experienced new changes in world powers with imperialist countries and countries who experienced imperialism. One example of this would be Japanese imperialism in Korea during 1910-1945, a 35 year harsh change in Korea’s culture, impacting both countries in negative and positive ways in the years to come.
