    Culture:
    Music is a central role in a Baka Pygmies life. Music is for ritualistic purposes. Their singing is also best described as bursts of harmonic yodeling. This was inspired by magical melodies and rhythms of the Baka Pygmies.
    Belief System:They believe that things such as rocks, plants, animals, thunder, earthquake etc. can influence what humans events and that they have spirts. They worship Jengi the forest god, he is also called Ejengi, and Djengi. They think that the god is a gardian or a parental figure. The dance of thanksgiving know as the Luma is done after every succesful hunt. One of the most important Tradichional ceremonies when a boy is ready to become a man, this is called Jengi. The people that are not Baka come to get some of their medicine that the Baka Pygmies make traditionaly. Art and Architecture:The Baka Pyghimes are nomadic. They live in temporary camps with huts made from branches and leaves which are made by women. As discrabied in the earlier paragraphs the Baka Pygmies art is mostly music. A recording of the Baka Pygmies music has been made into an album called " Spirit of the Forest".

    The Baka Pygmies are communal. Their decision is made in a group by consensus. Consencus is when they vote and the majority wins.

The men do the most hazerdious jobs. The women have to make the huts and to bring the food back to eat. Their huts are made out of branches and leaves to fit the hut structure. Culture: Music is a

    Impact of location
    The location of the Maya definitely had an impact on them. Seeing as they were mostly farmers, they had to live on fertile land. Other indigenous people were also affected by their location, otherwise we'd probably only have farmers. Many people now living in the Yucatan Peninsula are still farmers, showing how the location impacts people even today.

    contacts
    The aborigines came into contact with the europeans when they were forced to mvoe from North America to Australia. The reason they moved was not because of the environment rather the fact that the europeans were forcing them, therefore they moved to a more safe place where they could readapt to the environment and lvie on happily.

    Globalization
    Really the only effect of globalization on the Kwakiutl was that they moved into more modern housing and were introduced to more advanced fishing and hunting techniques. they still remain in the same general area and are, for the most part, left in peace. The Kwakiutl were more lucky than most, because they were not effected by globalization in a negative way, like some other indiginous civilizations were.

    Globalization
    It ranges from clan to clan. In one clan that may be placed in an area that needs the environment and if that environment changes they die. However, some clans may be able to adapt to their surroundings. One example is the Aborigines. The aborigines have lived through any hard times and are still standing today 40,000 years later. This shows that some clans have fallen like the Inca from the Spaniards and some are still alive today and thriving.
