    The Ohlone Way Summary

    • 1439 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Before reading The Ohlone Way: Indian Life in the San Francisco-Monterey Bay Area by Malcolm Margolin, I never knew about the Ohlone. I did not even know much about Native Americans. While reading the book, I feel like I was watching a movie. The author describes the Ohlone as if he was there. I could picture an Ohlone man inside a sweathouse, a group of women grinding acorns, a dancing shaman treating the sick, a boy trying to catch a rabbit, or a chief welcoming the traders. This is the most interesting part of the book. Even though Margolin did not observed the Ohlone 200 years ago, the numerous evidences that he gathered created a believable story that may not surprised me if it’s the truth about the Ohlone. This paper consists of my prior knowledge about the Ohlone before reading the book, aspects that I learned from the book, and the explanation of the life cycle development of the Ohlone using the framework of Super and Harkness’ Developmental niche theory. Prior Knowledge of Native Americans When I was young and still living in the Philippines, my knowledge about Native Americans were limited. The only Indians I knew are the Indians from India.

    Wolves, elk, antelope, deer, rabbits, eagles, grizzly bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, clams, oysters, whales, and so on were part of their everyday lives. They enjoyed a rich, sustainable environment that one can only dream of. According to Margolin (1978), the Ohlone were hunters and gatherers that did “not see themselves as the undisputed lords of all creation” (p. 12). This was amazing. It was the complete opposite from what most people do believe then and up until now. We think that…

    In Antonio López’s The Media Ecosystem, he outlines three potential outcomes for media ecosystems that we will face in the near future. The first is termed “Pangloss,” which represents a status quo, in which the current media ecosystem and systems of power do not shift much from their current positions. The next is a worst case scenario, “Pandora,” where a lack of citizen engagement leads to a media ecosystem of censorship, control, as well as a rise of privatization, and capitalistic values.…

    In being a physics embedded tutor, I have helped a number of students to get a better understanding in the subject.
