I. Rastafarianism a. Few have elaborated on the recent tenet of Rastafarianism that states women are subordinate to men. b. This ideology exists, as Lake contends, because of the unwillingness of men to relinquish their privilege and control over resources. c. The Rasta phrase “to grow a dawta” meaning to initiate women into RastafarI, underscores their child-like status. c.i. Most Rasta women in Jamaica are reconciled to this reality. d. RastafarI may be androcentric because men created it. e. There are 10,500 Rasta men and only 2,500 Rasta women. f. The symbolism within RastafarI is male. f.i. The male lion is the subject of imitation for male dread locks. g. The way women are depicted in Rasta sculpture portrays them as dependent on men. II. RastafarI Houses a. There are three main houses: Twelve Tribes of Israel, Nyabingi, and Bobo Shanti. III. The Twelve Tribes a. RastafarI is acephalous; there is no head. b. Twelve Tribes was founded by Vernon Carrington in 1968 in Trench Town.

    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.
