I know that there are sometimes and stuff, but what I'm asking about is the most recent tribe or people to be integrated into—or, at the very least, maintain a relationship with—the global community.

I'm mainly asking out of interest in their mythology surrounding modern things they have seen, like aircraft or ships and things like that. Like in the clip above with the Sentinelese. Why did they think that was happening? Who did they think those people were? What did they tell people when they got back home?

外围体育投注I'm hoping to find someone contacted recently enough that they've seen those things and can explain what their people thought of it.

外围体育投注This seemed like the place to ask, but if there is somewhere better equipped to answer this question, I'd appreciate being directed there.

Thanks in advance.

外围体育投注Hi! I'm helping to prepare a theoretical course this next semester for acheology students regarding boasian tradition (boas, linton, mead, benedict, sapir, et al.) and their heirs. In order to make it easier to digest and aprehend their importance, we are trying to come up with some uses of their theoretical principles for archeology problems. But it has been a bit hard, specially because of the material aspect of archeology (in comparison to ethnographic work).

I thought it would be nice to have the perspective of archeologists regarding this, and therefore I'm posting it here. It doesn't need to be a precise use of boasian tradition categories: notably influenced or insipired by their principles is good enough.

外围体育投注Thanks beforehand! :)

外围体育投注I love the book Stone Age economics - does anyone have any books that explore this concept further?

and....how valid is his thesis on "the original affluent man"?

I've read that due to how biology work (aka pregnancy) the well being of a given group is much more tied up with the number of females than males. A group with one female and 50 males is doomed to extinction, but a group with one male and 50 females can bounce back in one generation or less.

外围体育投注Based on it, the theory goes, war and dangerous activities are always reserved to males, even when strengh isn't a factor, or using women would be actually at doing the activity. It just happen that a man death is less harmfull to the group than a female one. It could also explain why the phrase "man up" are so prevalent in so many cultures, aka, that man should take risks for the group and women stay at home.

外围体育投注I want to know if there is any base for that or is just a theory.

The Diomedes islands form the narrowest point between Alaska and Siberia. I'm talking less than half a days journey on a canoe. Even less? (30ish kms) The twin islands had a native population as well.

Doesn't that almost guarantee that those people must have regularly gone back and forth between "old & new worlds" ALL THE TIME. And that there had always been link between both the worlds?
