Sheet1 Page 1 Website 1 url: http://www.iwgia.org/sw17294.asp Name of Indigenous culture/religion: Indigenous people in Argentina Consider the examples of roles and observances held sacred by these people. Is this practice being kept alive? Many Argentinians believe there are no indigenous people in their country, either because the majority have died out or are on the verge of doing so, or because their descendants were assimilated into Western civilization long ago and they now live like any other citizen. There is a gradual loss of their mother tongue, but they do maintain their amcestral beliefs despite having been subjected to a variety of evangelizing processes. Has the culture/religion evolved over time? They have created their own churches on the basis of a fusion of their own beliefs and religion. They have set bilingual and intercultural education. If the culture/religion still lives, how has Western culturre changed it? Generalized stereotypes have forced many indigenous people to defensively hide their identity in order to avoid being subjected to racial discrimination. Most indigenous people live in rural communities and do not make up much of the population. The change comes from having to hide their beliefs and change how they live just to fit in to society. I would have to say that the indigenous people are more scarce today then ever before. They are found but not as many people carry on the beliefs from their ancestiors. Who authored this site?

    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.
