Looking Anthropologically at the Peoples of the Khumbu Valley and Rwanda
AbstractThis paper looks anthropologically at the indigenous peoples of the Khumbu Valley and Rwanda. Specifically, my research examines the Sherpa, Twa, Tutsi, and Hutu peoples through the complex anthropological lenses of social cohesion, cultural ecology, and progress. This paper examines each culture and addresses three major questions: (1) How do these cultures achieve social cohesion; (2) How does the concept of cultural ecology play into each culture; and (3) Is the notion of progress even real?
