The Anglo-American Global Village

The Wikipedia map of this Anglo-American Global Village shows the land masses of Canada, the United States, and Alaska. Often, Iceland is included because its boundaries straddle both the Anglo-American and European Global Villages.  In this setting Iceland is not included.

Cultural Hearths

Human settlements are marked by cultural hearths. Archaeologists look for hearths in early investigations of ancient populations.  The ancient cultural hearth in this Global Village does not depict Anglo cultural features. Therefore, much of original cultural identities may be obscured or lost, within contemporary cultures.

This Anglo-American Global Village is shown in this video of Canada’s annual Multi-cultural Day.  It is celebrated with music, dancing, ethnic foods and entertainment. The list of nationalities represented  is long, beginning with First Nations.

Native Peoples and Their Names

Native peoples live in Alaska, like the Inuit, familiarly known as Eskimos (not their preferred name).  In Canada, native peoples are called First Nations. In the United States they are Native Americans or Amerindians.  Native peoples in this Anglo-American Global Village keep their culture strong through language revitalization, and annual celebrations. Importantly, drumming and dancing are part of a modern Pow Wow on White Mountain Apache land in Arizona.  Learn more about First Nations of Canada here:
