Lakotapteole: Wood Mountain Lakota Cultural Adaptation and Maintenance Through Ranching and Rodeo, 1880-1930

2014 September 1900 (has links)
After Chief Sitting Bull returned to the U.S. in 1881 from Canada, about 250 Lakota people remained in present-day Saskatchewan. Through archival research and oral interviews, this study interprets the way these Lakota people at Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan engaged in ranching and rodeo (some farming will be discussed as well although this was practiced on a smaller scale) in order to see what this reveals about indigenous constructions of collective identity in the difficult years of colonial displacement between 1880 and 1930. The stereotypical and persistent dichotomy of “cowboys versus Indians” will be challenged as it does damage to Aboriginal peoples’ abilities to adapt and their involvement in agriculture. Ranching and rodeo not only gave the Lakota people at Wood Mountain a viable economic lifestyle but a lifestyle that was culturally and socially fulfilling. And furthermore, from this came the motivation and ability to build a Lakota community and identity that was at once distinct yet interactive with the non-Aboriginal ranching society/lifestyle in the Wood Mountain area. This study argues that the Lakota of Wood Mountain blended traditional Lakota culture with cowboy lifestyles that allowed for the adaptation to and interaction with non-Aboriginal society, the retention of traditional Lakota cultural aspects, and the reshaping of identities and communities around this blending process.

Modets skrivna ord : En jämförelse mellan kundtidningar och förlagsutgivna tidningar i modebranschen

Lacis, Jenny, Sandahl, Sara January 2013 (has links)
Många företag ger i dag ut tidningar med journalistiskt material till sina kunder, så kallade kundtidningar. Något som är unikt för dessa är deras tryggade ekonomi och att de ska främja ett företag med hjälp utav mer material än bara reklam. Fenomenet är inte nytt, utan har existerat sedan mitten av nittonhundratalet, men föga forskning finns kring kundtidningars innehåll och funktion, och vad som skiljer dem från vanliga populärkulturella tidningar. Detta ville vi med denna uppsats försöka undersöka och den valda inriktningen är kundtidningar som ges ut av modeföretag. Denna studie har analyserat innehållet i fyra företagsutgivna tidningar (varav en hybrid) och tre förlagsutgivna tidningar i modebranschen. Analysen utgjordes av två delar; en kvantitativ textanalys, där antal texttyper har räknats, samt en kvalitativ innehållsanalys, där frågor har ställts till materialet. Dessutom har vi även placerat in tidningarna längs Colin Sparks innehålls-axlar, som är till för att konkretisera olika tidningstyper. Resultatet visar att kundtidningarna främst består av intervjuer med människor, som ett sätt att skapa igenkänning och en relation med läsarna, samtidigt som de informerar om sina produkter. Någon renodlad reklam förekommer nästan inte alls i kundtidningarna. I vissa av de de förlagsutgivna tidningarna finns dock så mycket annonser att det journalistiska materialet till viss mån anpassar sig efter annonsörerna En konklusion blir att kundtidningar, som ej är beroende av annonsering, kan framställa ett innehåll som är mer anpassad för deras målgrupp. Uppsatsens slutsats blir dock att det finns en tydlig gränsdragning mellan vad som är en kundtidning och vad som är en modetidning då det inte går att bortse från att kundtidningarnas avsikt är att vara reklam oavsett kvalité på innehåll. Men i viss mån liknar de olika tidningarna varandra över gränserna, och modetidningarna känns ibland mer reklaminriktade än kundtidningarna på grund av sitt krav på att anpassa innehållet efter annonsörer.

O "espet?culo do cabra macho" : um estudo sobre os vaqueiros nas vaquejada no Rio Grande do Norte

No. of bitstreams: 1 FranciscoJFA.pdf: 1991383 bytes, checksum: afbb72385131d405ad201e4a47281ba7 (MD5) Previous issue date: 2008-07-18 / Coordena??o de Aperfei?oamento de Pessoal de N?vel Superior / This body of work discusses the gender meanings associated with cowboys while endorsing contemporary rodeos in Rio Grande do Norte as a recreational sport and a form of ludic expression. As a result, this research has focused on rodeo practices, aiming to understand the different aspects emphasizing masculinity: these associations being constructed through relationships, contexts and the competitiveness between participants. These gender meanings hinge on the desire for a wining performance and on the behaviour exhibited among cowboys outside the competitive ring in specific social settings such as parties and recreational time. The latter were the focus of the ethnographic research; direct observation and semistructured interviews with cowboys in rodeo stadiums were also used. Through qualitative analysis of the collected data, it was revealed that historically and socially different trajectories do not immediately cause a gender crisis in cowboys, but the assignment of new significance by the social acts in each historical context. However, the presence of cowboys leads to other models of masculinity configured by expressions and the insertion of new personas, not coming directly from field activities, but imbued by the symbolic elements of the cowboy persona, constructed throughout history / O presente trabalho, ao enfocar as vaquejadas contempor?neas no Rio Grande do Norte como atividade esportiva e como express?o l?dica, tem a proposta de pensar os significados associados aos vaqueiros, especialmente aqueles constru?dos na interface com as rela??es de g?nero. Por isso, esta pesquisa centrou sua abordagem nas pr?ticas dos vaqueiros nas vaquejadas, com o objetivo de compreender os diversos aspectos que apontam para a masculinidade, uma vez que os seus sentidos s?o constitu?dos pelos envolvimentos, rela??es e concorr?ncias entre os seus competidores. As significa??es s?o articuladas pela busca de uma performance para ser campe?o e pelas pr?ticas fora da pista de competi??o executadas entre os seus personagens no contexto das situa??es sociais espec?ficas, a saber: a festa e os momentos de lazer. Tais pr?ticas foram objeto da pesquisa etnogr?fica, com a observa??o direta e entrevistas semi-estruturadas com os vaqueiros nos parques de vaquejadas, o que nos conduziu a realizar a an?lise qualitativa dos dados coletados. A pesquisa tem revelado que as trajet?rias hist?ricas e sociais diversas dos vaqueiros n?o provocam imediatamente uma crise nas rela??es de g?nero, mas a forma??o de novos sentidos ressignificados pelos seus atores sociais em cada contexto hist?rico. A presen?a, portanto, dos vaqueiros conduz a outros modelos de masculinidade configurados por express?es e pela inser??o de novos figurantes, n?o exatamente advindos das atividades do campo, mas imbu?dos dos elementos simb?licos da figura do vaqueiro, constru?da ao longo da hist?ria

Wildfire Impacts on Ecosystem Resources: Case Studies in Arizona's Ponderosa Pine Forest Following the Rodeo-Chediski Wildfire of 2002

Stropki, Cody Lee January 2011 (has links)
The Rodeo-Chediski Wildfire the largest in Arizona's history at the time of burning damaged and disrupted ecosystems resources and functioning in a largely mosaic pattern throughout the ponderosa pine (Pinus Ponderosa) forests exposed to the burn. Impacts of this wildfire on ecosystems resources and functioning were studied from shortly after the cessation of the wildfire in late summer of 2002 through the spring of 2007 on two previously instrumented watersheds located on sandstone derived soils within the burn. One watershed was burned by a high severity (stand-replacing fire), while the other watershed burned in a low severity (stand-modifying) fire. This dissertation focuses on the effects fire severity had on watersheds resources and functioning in terms of the tree overstories, herbaceous understories, large and small mammals, avifauna, hydrologic functioning, soil water repellency, hillslope soil movement, and fuel loadings. The results of these studies indicated the cumulative impacts incurred to ecosystem resources, hydrologic functioning, and flammable fuels were much greater on the watershed exposed to the high severity (stand-replacing) fire. It is anticipated that the overall ecological and hydrologic function on the watershed burned by a high severity will not approach pre-fire conditions for many years. The watershed burned at a low severity, however, was approaching pre-fire conditions nearly five years after fire and is expected to be recovered within the next few years.

A festa do Peão de Boiadeiro: espaço-mercadoria, indústria cultural e consumo

Thus, it fits, here, to demonstrate the capitalist historical coordinates which have been promoting incessant reimagining in the spaces of rodeo fests
