All cultures change naturally­ can be very shocking ad intrusive   Colonialism­ motivator of culture change, extremely important, ancient   European colonialism allowed for domination of many indigenous cultures   Naturalizing conquest was a justification of brutal practices of colonizers   White mans burden­ European colonizers were rightful protectors and educators of  indigenous populations who were inferior peoples incapable of accomplishing cultural  progress   Without Europeans, indigenous people were uncivilized   Reaction by colonizers on indigenous people were awe and had disbelief   Indigenous tried inclusion, all happy parties, Europeans resisted   Indigenous technologies lost to European weapons   Major types of Colonies  o Settlement colonies­ mass immigration of colonials, fueled by obtaining large  parcles of land  o Maritime enclaves­ establishments in control of trade and natural resources within colony  o Exploitation colonies­ enabled by large military presence creating forced labor of  indigenous people, facilitated by political and economic control by colonized  country   Practices of Colonialism  o Resettlement­ removal of indigenous group from traditional/ancestral lands   taking them to new place, not fit for indigenous people, ie. Native americans  o Reservations­ indigenous peoples palces after traditional lands taken by  Europeans, caused difficulty in adapting causing poverty, hunger and disruption  of cultural practices,  o Missionism­ religious outposts of European colonizers  working for eradication  of indigenous religion and cultures  lead to assimilation of natives  o Forced Removal and Education of Children­ removal of native children and put in governmental schools forcing cultural assimilation, also arranged marriages  hoping to breed out native linages  o Slavery­ forced labor of natives, effects political, socio­economic and kidnship  structures  o Eradication of languages and cultural practices­ many ways to achieve this   forcing abandonment of native languages, European dress, religious customs,  marriage etc  o Alteration of Indigenous Economies­ blocked or eliminated native trade  operations, replaced with European practices   Ex. Fur trade­ pulled native americans into European economic system  o Spread of Disease­ bringing of disease to native populations from European  countries, smallpox and influenza unknown to native groups so they had no  immune resistance  demographic declines  Colonialism and Anthropology  o Anthropology burits in colonial period conducted work in shadow of colonial  outposts  o Salvage anthropology­ documentation and description of disappearing indigenous  cultures  o Seen as intrusive and unwelcome by natives  o Anthropologist as expert­ natives didn’t like idea of being and expert on foreign  culture, (ie representing cultural practices), also could imply asymmetrical power  relationships during colonialism  o Frozen in time­ resulting ethnographies only looked at a culture in that moment in time, not history or future, romanticized natives, problems when defining what  was authentic  problem for groups wanting to challgen cultural appropriation   Anthropology is reflexive­ invested in responding to problems brought up by people   Usually studying US culture, not foreign   Problem oriented­ seeks to identify contemporary issues and questions and to investigate  them through research   Understanding of updating ethnographic work over the years   Post colonialism o Academic, political and economic of analyzation and understanding the impacts  of colonialism  o Post colonial era­ time since last European colonies gained independence and are  now in native hands  o Decolonization­ undoing remnants of colonialism  rearranging social structures,  economic policies, land rights
