I believe that members of eastern enclaves were not the only men in cahoots with the Setian-Atonists. Members of elite families in Western lands, such as Vespasian, Titus, Claudius, Poppaea, Constantine, Theodosius and Justinian were I believe also seduced by their power. Several members of the Flavian dynasty of Rome, for example, rose to power because of their allegiance with the descendants of Akhenaton.
Of course, the former is a much larger portion of the debate, and the latter is almost always a huge straw-man argument that few people actually make, but serves to bolster the idea that anyone who takes issue with cultural appropriation is a hysterical hater.
That might not be clear when you first start looking into the issue, however. I bring this topic up precisely because it does scare and confuse and inflame. Except I want to avoid all that negative stuff as best I can. Much like in the post on what to call usI present you with my thoughts on the matter, recognising that there are legitimate arguments for and against my various positions.
Not for me, not for you. If easy answers is what you seek, I shall leave you disappointed. Because so much has been said on this topic about colonialism and racism and marginalisation and so forth, I wanted to add in a few points from a related but slightly different perspective than I often see discussed.
First, some resources A lot has been said on this issue, and although I do a lot of in-my-head work, I also read what other people have to say about these things.
I tend to focus on cultural appropriation as it relates to native peoples, though this issue is hardly limited to us. The blog Native Appropriations is a great place to do some reading. It is honestly one of the best resources I have ever seen, so please give it a gander!
There is no punchline actually. Each one of these things is a symbol, a visual recognition of a certain kind of achievement.
The symbol is important, but only because of what it represents. Without that deeper meaning, the Victoria Cross is gaudy jewellery, a Bachelor Degree is just a piece of paper, the Giller Prize is abstract art and an eagle feather is just ornamentation.
These symbols are restricted to those who have fulfilled certain criteria. Yes, there are people out there who would mock the symbols and wear representations of them for kicks. There are also people who would lie about their achievements and pretend to have earned what the symbols represent.
Sometimes these kinds of claims are met with criminal sanction, so seriously do we take this sort of thing. Restricted versus unrestricted So there are a category of symbols in Canadian culture which are restricted within that culture.
Not everyone can use those restricted symbols. There are rules about how you have to earn them, who can fashion the symbols themselves for you, who can present you with these symbols, and even sometimes what you can do with the symbols.
Obviously, other cultures also have restricted symbols linked to deeper, less obviously visible achievements.
Then there are symbols in Canadian culture which are not restricted to those who have achieved specific things. Every Canadian is entitled to use the Canadian flag for example, and the meaning behind the use of that flag will vary depending on what a person individually wishes to symbolise.
A connection to the country? A call for unity? A protest against some action or policy? The meaning varies though the symbol stays the same, and we can and do alter that meaning with how we use the symbol. We express different ideas with how we use the symbol, and we do not generally punish people for doing what they want with that symbol.
If someone unfamiliar with Canadian culture were to decorate herself with a string of fake Victoria Crosses, the reaction would be different than if the same person draped a Canadian flag over her non-Canadian shoulders.Irish Celtic tattoos are eminent for the unfathomable and significant interpretations.
The Celts were an Ind-European crowd of people and their history traced back to the second century BC. They used to live in tribes and journeyed the territory of Western Europe .
Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two. Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs..
For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get back words like "gazellephant" and "gorilldebeest". Smoothing out English spelling. Reforming English spelling seems to make sense.
English orthography is a mess, thanks to its origins and accretions over the centuries. CELTIC DEITIES. The gods and goddesses, or deities of the Celts are known from a variety of sources, these include written Celtic mythology, ancient places of worship, statues, engravings, cult objects and place or personal names.
Gydo Hendriks Dec Carnaval. This is also one i haven’t seen in your list yet.
