In the Cherokee culture women and men are considered equal. The role of the Cherokee woman in the past is very different than the role of an American woman today. Men would cut down the trees and clear land so they could plant, they would use the wood to build news homes in fences around the villages, they may traps nets and other tools they hunted and fished and fix stuff when needed. Sometimes men move in with her wife 's family and sometimes he might build a home for his wife and family. In the Cherokee nation women where badass.

The fertile lands of Ontario are in sharp contrast to the harsh and barren landscape of Cape Breton where the people value the scarce produce the land provides. While the industrial world simply ploughs under the excess tomatoes, Alexander reflects how his traditional grandmother had spent decades “nurturing” her “few precious plants” in “rocky soil”(2). Thus, from the opening scene, the juxtaposition of the fertile lands of Ontario and the rocky soil of Cape Breton highlights how Cape Bretoners must work hard to obtain produce from their land. The traditional values of hard work and frugality of the MacDonald come from the land in which they are surrounded. Macleod’s opening paragraph shapes the remainder of the novel: the tomatoes are overripe much as the traditional Cape Breton industries of timber and fishing have lost the ability to sustain their inhabitants.
The other person I talked to had a personal experience with one of the quotes, “These farmers braved the elements; they were confronted with Mother Nature.” When she read this quote she was reminded of the time she had to brave the cold winters in Abilene where the school had been closed for a long time but had to attend once the work had started to stockpile.

I think the author did a great job of using a fictitious character in Gabriella of shining a very graphic spotlight on to actual events that took place, allowing for an untainted look through the looking glass into another culture that many Americans don’t get to
HPAC stands for “Health Professions Affinity Community” and is a club that is designated to help tackle medical issues that are prevalent in the communities of Northeast Ohio through innovative projects.

In middle school, I noticed that a lot of students had unhealthy lunches and were unfamiliar with the benefits of healthy eating. To solve this issue, I worked on creating a school community garden that could help spread awareness about the importance of healthy eating. Once the garden was fully grown, I began noticing how successful our garden was.
