Wessing 1 Alexander Wessing PID A07855393 Cat MMW 2 – Section A06 19 November 2007 1. How does social evolution take place? What type of history is presented here and how can it be broken down into simpler stages or steps specific to the Ilahita Arapesh? Social evolution takes place in long periods of time where a social population of people change their ways in order to better their lifestyle. The type of history present here is social and it can be broken down into lifetimes and generations. The Ilahita have evolved from a very basic slash and burn horticulture society into a complex system of marital ties, multiplex relationships, and group cooperation. For example a custom may have started out as an idea from someone in the group and then they found it to be beneficial to the group as a whole and so from then on it became custom and incorporated into their everyday life. 2. Identify and explain the historical stages and transitions of Ilahita society. The first stage is the Pre-Tambaran where the men’s cult did not have power and the Abelam culture had not yet intruded.

    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.
