Ant 301 Unlv Oswalt Vs. Denmore

Intro Sample...


There were obvious omissions from the textbook, that through the length of Densmore’s book, that were easily covered. Among these were the traditional games played by the Chippewa. The author was able to personally observe several including the Moccasin Game and the Woman’s Game. Picture writing, such as Dream Symbols and Totem Marks were also not covered. Of particular interest, Densmore gave a vivid account of the mythology of fire and also the different ways it was produced. Similarly, she was able to explain the construction and different uses of torches in the culture. Finally, Densmore explained the use of memory devices such as the notches a medicine man put in a stick to record dates.
The most obvious type of information not included in Densmore’s book (especially from the inference that she “might have covered” them) is the social and political ramifications of continuing to live in white society. It is impossible for Densmore’s book to even lightly cover these subjects simply because the book can’t cover the timeline the text does.
The final and most difficult question is: What information did neither book cover. Although I don’t believe this is what you are looking for, the first thing to pop in my head was waste disposal. For example, many people consider an outhouse to be “roughing it.” Once you have hiked 30 miles through the Ruby Mountains your definition changes quickly.
Densmore describes the Chippewa culture beginning with a history dating back to 1822 when the War Department first placed an agency among the bands. She personally observes them from 1907-1921 (Pg. 4) with her translator Mrs. Mary Warren English and this study likely ended with the death of Mrs. English in 1925. This book was then published in 1929. View More »

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (

    The Impact of Globalization on the Health Sector in South Africa After the Apartheid era, massive inequalities in income, health status, access to health care and other social services continued to dominate in South Africa.

    Western Family

    1059 words, 5 pages

    A major change that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce. Whereas in the past, divorce was a relatively rare occurrence, in recent times it has become quite commonplace. This change is borne out clearly in census figures. For example thirty years ago in Australia, only one marriage in ten ended in divorce; nowadays the figure is more than one in three (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1996: p.45). A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the attendant problems that this brings (Kilmartin, 1997).
