Early Anthropology was focused on preserving as much as possible of the “vanishing Indian.” By doing so they provided copious examples of what “authentic” Indians should look like with photographs as well as artifacts of “traditional” Indian culture. Raibmon’s second reason for placing the focus of her book here because there were big political changes in the area at that same time. ... ... middle of paper ... ...n they were not. Aboriginals used this opportunity to assert their native identity in a way that challenged the idea of authenticity while at the same time playing into that idea. This book and the Aboriginal people described within are successful in showing how late nineteenth century ideas of authenticity can at once be complied to and challenged, which is perhaps a reflection of how the definition for authenticity was created.
The original wolves were very different from the ones that were planted. So while environmentalists thought they were helping to level out environmental problems, they succeeded in doing the opposite, by bringing back the wrong kind of wolves they started, depleting elk populations, and wild game. In 1995 the environmentalists started to repopulate the wolves. The wolves started spreading like rabbits, across many states including Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, and Washington. The main area in the spot light would be Yellowstone because of the national park there it instantly hit the News and Press.
When Cochise first learned to walk, there would have been a ceremony to honor his first pair of moccasins. These ceremonies are social occasions to the Apache people, during which they danced, sang, and had huge feasts. Cochise was taught Apache beliefs by his parents as soon as he was able to comprehend them. Through his parents and Apache beliefs, he was taught about Usen, the Apache God, The White Painted Woman, and The Mountain Spirits- who were king beings who the Apache's thought to have lived in the caves on Cochise's homeland. They were thought to be special protectors and helped with important ceremonies.

The forest begins to decay and the Kodama fall to the ground and dissolve. San and Ashitaka chase after Jigo in order to return the head before the end of the night. Both of them manage to return the head just in time. The Forest Spirit falls into the lake, destroying Iron Town.
Researching wolves at the time, Farley Mowat’s “Never Cry Wolf” details the massacre of caribou for their heads. At one point, a massacre is described when a group of deer was herded into a circle by a plane and a group of “hunters” shot at them from said plane. Once the firing was over, Mowat described the scene with “crimson slush” snow and the carcasses of 23 caribou. Of those caribou, only three showed any trace of harvesting: their heads. Every single caribou was wasted, as no person or animal benefited from the caribou’s plentiful meat.
Because of his fluent speech in both languages, he was genuinely liked and respected by Indians. At a young age, he began documented stories from older men in the Ojibway tribes and translating the bible and other stories like “Arabian Nights” for the Indians. Documenting the stories and traditions of the Ojibway people became his greatest pass time during his teen years while translating and interpreting became a stepping stone for a political career as he was soon involved in the negotiations of treaties between the United States and the Ojibway people.

Watching closely he figured out that they usually only eat the sick and weak deer. The government was paying people up to twenty dollars to kill wolves. Leaving the lake Farley went to Brochet Winter... ... middle of paper ... ...ealthy men were getting into helicopters with high powered guns rounding up big groups of caribou and shooting them. The men would then take the racks they wanted and leave. Farley checked out an incident on this and found everything about it to be true.
It's amazing what people do to save themselves and their heritage, and I've learned this from the Choctaw Tribe.

Comparing Dances with Wolves with The Searchers The Native American culture is something that is cherished by their people. “Perhaps no other group of people has quite the rich and storied culture as those of the Native Americans. They have a history rich in struggle, strife, and triumph (Native American Culture).” Dances with Wolves, directed by Kevin Costner in 1990, is about a white man who becomes interested in the Native American culture and decides to befriend fellow an Indian tribe (Dances with Wolves). The Searchers by John Ford in 1956 is about a white man who is on a journey to find his niece who was kidnapped by an Indian tribe (The Searchers). These films do have a few differences but many similarities.
The Indian Frontier of the American West tells a story of the different Indian tribes and whites from 1846 to 1890. This period of time is very famous in American history. It produced some of the most widely heard of names in the battles between Indians and whites. These names include Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe, Sitting Bull of the Oglala Sioux, Cochise, Geronimo, and Mangas Coloradas, and John Ross of the Cherokee Nation. These names are still very respected among historians and are seen throughout history books used in schools across the nation.
