Indigenous Cultures

Since I become a graduate student at San Jose State university, It has opened up a whole new world to me. Going from engineering mind to environmental studies mind has been one of the best things for me. Believe me I mean it.

Anyways! In one of our courses we learn about America and Indigenous ways of living. We also learn who they were and what they did and what happened to them. How colonials kind of vanished the whole civilization and called them savages! You truly learn who the real savage is, to remove someone from their home and call them savage!

We learn how they used sustainable living, they didn’t abuse land or resources. Their agricultural practices were amazing and people nowadays need to learn it.

After reading all these texts, I go back to other civilizations like Persia, Egypt. What is left from them, westernize culture has been so strongly forced on these countries. They had the best ways of cooling and heating for their homes. There is a bath in Iran which gets warm by just a candle.

I mean just think of the contribution of the science and people these civilizations had on other countries and how often do you here about indigenous heroes!

Last night my husband mentioned a documentary on Netflix called Latin history for morons by actor and comedian john Leguizamo. It’s obvious he has done a lot of research and studying and he gives the best history lesson possible. I truly recommend it to everyone. People need to learn where it all began!
