  1. Dawn, I am having a hard time helping you. You haven't told us which indigenous people you explored. What did you learn from the websites you found?

    In general, modern civilization has changed indigenous people's experience with nature and their age-old customs. By educating them about science and introducing modern technology, many of these people are confused about what new things to embrace and they wonder how to maintain their old religious beliefs.

    If the history of Christianity is a guide, then probably indigenous peoples have combined some new ideas with some of their traditional ceremonies. For instance, our Christian holidays have some elements of ancient pagan customs -- ghosts on Halloween, and mistletoe and evergreen trees at Christmas. In fact, December 25 was accepted as Christmas, not because it was Christ's actual birthday, but because it could incorporate traditional winter solstice celebrations with the new religion of Christianity.
