Theme Exam Three: In chapter seven, Cultural Modification Policies, Bodley quotes Herman Merival and his guidelines on which indigenous customs need be dealt with in which way in order to insure state domination over the native cultures. In the chapter Bodley explains Herman’s three categories in which every indigenous tradition or practice could be placed and then further “corrected.” The second of Herman’s categories is called, “less horrible” but still “pernicious” customs. These customs are not clearly defined but overall oppress native language due to the fact that by not suppressing language the imperial capital state will not have full authority and thus not run most efficiently. But what we see in this article is that though social engineering has occurred, the determination of native indigenous peoples has held strong and with the help of technology, it has become easier to hold on to their cultural languages because it can now be recorded and taught, alongside the dominate language of their country, to future generations.

    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.
