  • Haida Gwaii Analysis

    This paper will look at the Haida traditional uses of trees, shrubs, flowers, ferns, and mosses found on the archipelago. Due to the cool and wet climate along with the nutrient-poor soils, conifer species such as Western hemlock, Sitka spruce, and Western red cedar dominate Haida Gwaii’s forests (Banner et al., 2014). However, the deciduous red alder tree dominated the forest at the beginning of the trail as the earlier part of the trail was new growth. This is because red alder thrives in disturbed sites such as old logging areas, and it is fast growing (Pojar & MacKinnon, 1994). According to Tollas, the red alder tree contains a brownish red dye that was used for cedar weaving. Next up was the Western hemlock, Tollas explained that because of it’s dense canopy, very few plants can be found growing underneath. However, the branches of the Western hemlock served as bedding material due to its softness. Next, the Sitka spruce, distinguished by the thin bark that breaks into small scales, was especially valuable to the Haida due to the medicinal purposes in the pitch. The pitch could be used as a topical medicine for burns, slivers, and other skin…

  • Alder Quinn: A Short Story

    constant hum of a lopsided metal fan was beyond me. But that's exactly what Alder Quinn's very existence was, an annoyance. No matter what was happening, you could always be assured of one thing; he was doodling absentmindedly in class instead of paying attention. How he got away with it was beyond me. I wouldn't have minded it if it wasn't for the fact that the class was Past World History 594 Advanced Honors, which on the easiest day was a blur of information that I couldn't seem to retain…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Social Control

Contrary to Freud and Jung, Alder believed that people could change and we were not defined by our past. Techniques are also very similar in all three approaches,…

  • Classical Theory Of Criminology

    Research implies that the less powerful a race, gender, or class is, the more likely they will be subjected to the control of the law and treated as criminal (Katz, 2000).
