WHICH CULTURE IS FOR YOU Anthropology is the study of humankind everywhere throughout time seeks to produce reliable knowledge about people and their behavior both about what makes them different and what they all share in common The next few pages will share with you some simple facts about two cultures that are very much different and are seperated by a span of ocean water These two groups of people are the Yanomamo people of Brazil and the Swazi of South Africa INTRODUCTION There is a large tribe of Tropical Forest Indians on the border between Venezuela and Brazil They are distributed in about 125 small distant villages The are gardeners and they have lived until recently isolation for our kind culture The interesting thing about the group is tat they have managed to retain their native pattern of warfare and political integrity without interference from the outside world This is due to their isolation in a remote corner of the Amazon They have remained sovereign and in complete control of their own destiny up until a few years ago The Swazi people live in a small land locked country border on three sides by South Africa They have a wide range of ecological zones rainforest in the north west mountainous regions the center is level land and the east scrubby lowveld It mostly rains in the summer which is strangely from December to April The people are hard workers are originating from the Nguni clan of North Africa Because of their location many European hunters traders farmers and missionaries came to their area bringing the skills and trades with them This caused the Nguni people to become what is now known as the Swazi people with a new and mixed culture By comparing the two cultures I will try to show how being isolated and exposed can change a culture This will show each cultures destiny was decided by each group
