food for the entire society. Mean while, the men are out attempting to catch the big game meat animals who are a lot more difficult to bring down. Although once an animal is killed the men can provide for the whole society and more, the time it takes to kill them would entail the tem- porary starvation of their people. This places women as the primary provider which is quite dif- ferent for American societies. In American societies the male has and still is seen as the primary provider. The ideal american family consists of the man out in the workforce working 9-5 while the typical American wife must stay at home and do the things men do not like such as, cooking, cleaning, and taking care of kids.

    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.
