Name of Indigenous culture/religion presented in Web site

The name of the indigenous culture proclaimed in this website is the Native culture. Some practices held by the Natives are ones that were used back before they became a huge issue. They are not still practiced the same ways though, with new technologies I believe they have changed the manner in which they are practiced.

Consider the examples of roles and observances held sacred by these people. Is this practice being kept alive?

Has the culture/religion evolved over time?

Yes, as I said above with the new technologies and such, there are so many new ways of practicing the healing process and new medicines.

If the culture/religion still lives, how has Western culture changed it?

The western culture has been an accelerating and pervasive influence on the Natives. With modification and adaptation of the Native culture has followed interethnic contact. I am not sure who authorized the site but I do believe it is authentic.

Name one interesting fact you learned from this Web site.

I learned that Hindu religion is the most important and the most liberal religion in the world, this is according the Irish litterateur George Bernard. Another thing I learned that I enjoyed reading about was the fact that It was almost 100 years before unification of Germany (1868), Italy (1868), and the restoration of the Meiji (Japan, 1868) in which America was also under British dependency, that Prithvi Narayan Shah had already unified (1768) 54 small fiefdoms to build a large, expanded and greater Nepal. But after the movement of April 2006 and the party leaders came to power they smashed the statue of the great King, contempt and insulted him and called off the birth anniversary of the late king as a day of national unity.

No No

If the culture/religion lives, how has Western culture changed it?

The distinction between the natural and the supernatural that has emerged in the Western world is not relevant to the traditional religions. Spirits may have much greater power than human beings, but their powers are perceived not as altering the way the world commonly works but as explaining occurrences in nature or in the social world. The U.S Library of Congress Although southern Sudan does not suffer as acutely as northern Sudan from lack of rain, there has sometimes been a shortage, particularly during the 1970s and 1980s and in 1990; this lack has created hardship, famine, and death amidst the travail of civil war. For this reason, rituals connected with rain have become important in many ethnic groups, and ritual specialists concerned with rain or thought to incarnate the spirit of rain are important figures.
