Joseph Boyden’s Three Day Road was strongly based on the relationship between Xavier Bird and Elijah Whiskeyjack.

Artesania also reflects the idea of ‘nature and necessity.’ This is the practice of using materials that come from the earth and the notion that the furnishings, created with these materials, have more utilitarian tendencies. Unlike other design styles that employ frivolity and extravagance, the Mexican style values functionality on a more modest scale. All of these cultural influences help to form the identity of Mexican design and in turn, influence the materials and functional techniques that are used.

Food is integral to culturalidentity and is as much a part of culture as religion and language. Indeed, some cultures elevate food to a level nearing, if not exceeding, the status of their religion.

The style of Asian writing seems to be completely different from that of the western writing systems. For starters, many western languages are phonetic: words are spelled out with symbols that represent sounds. The way that a word looks has nothing to do with the meaning of the word. On the other hand, the most recognized form of Asian writing, Chinese characters, are completely pictographic. A single character is correlated to one sound or meaning. To convey more complicated meanings, pictographs are either combined into new pictographs, or multiple characters are simply used in succession. The meaning of words is depicted throughVIEW DOCUMENT

Racism was prominent during the world's fair era, with the imperialist dogmatic belief that the United States needed to spread its boundaries to civilize less fortunate, culturally inferior beings after 1865, and throughout the Spanish-American War.

In regards, identity is shaped into an individual through the social trials of life that involve family and peers, the religious beliefs by the practice of certain faiths, and cultural awareness through family history and traditions.
