AVATAR A JOURNEY DEEPER into AVATAR Jake Sully, a paralyzed former marine, is contacted about the untimely death of his twin brother, a scientist working on a project to obtain diplomacy on the alien planet of Pandora. A lush world where the Omaticaya tribe also called Na’vi dwell, appearing primitive although they are highly evolved. Due to the planets hostile environment, human/Na’vi hybrids are used to allow free movement on Pandora. These hybrids are called avatars, created to facilitate communication among the Na’vi. Using the avatar to regain mobility, Jake develops a connection with the Na’vi, soon finding himself in love with Neytiri the daughter of Olo’eyktan the clan leader. Torn between his duty and his growing love for Neytiri he discovers himself engaged in a battle for the survival of her world. While discussing cultural adaption encountered during Jakes adventure on Pandora, we will look at communication concepts of subculture, culture shock, language as a barrier, religion and identity. Giving the ability to understand and learn how to overcome controversy in cultural adaption. Considering a subculture is a complex society that is made up of a large number of groups in which people identify from a derived distinctive set of values and rules for behavior (Jandt2016). Jake catches a glimpse of subculture while being taught interactions of the Na’vi, he becomes versed in ways of generations, encompasses the culture and its values, commits to memory their behaviors and gestures.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
