Question Description

Prepare a 5-6 page ethnographic study of a group or culture to which you belong

“Ethnography” –- the official name of this kind of research and writing – tends to call to mind distant cultures – the Bedouin of the Arabian Peninsula, or the natives of the Amazon rainforest. But we all belong to several cultures – and are surrounded by many, many more. Any social group will for its own culture – skateboarders, Facebook users, online gamers, athletic teams. Any of them (or almost any) can be fertile ground for an ethnographic study.

Note that, in an ideal world, you wouldn’t choose a group that you’re part of , since it’ll be harder to be objective. We will try to assure objectivity by including at least two secondary sources – books, articles, web sites, and so on.

Evaluation Criteria

Content: Analysis of group is based on sound research, including multiple sources of data, such as observations, interviews, and at least 2 secondary sources. (364-365).

Organization: Essay follows one of the three methods of development, and effectively guides reader through its analysis.

Style: Writing is clear and appropriate. Tone and language reflect the purpose and audience of the essay.

Mechanics: Free of grammar and spelling errors. All sources cited using MLA format.

The natives of the Amazon rainforest- An ethnographic study
Introduction
The Amazon is not only the world's largest rainforest but most importantly the home to
over one million Indians who have existed for many years in groups of up to four hundred tribes,

contact with the rest of the world for many personal reasons among which is the fact that their
previous encounters with people from outside the group had resulted in massive destruction of
their setting. Some groups are survivors of enslavement, and hence the reason why they would
rather keep their affairs to themselves. There is very little that is known about these groups but
