We have spent considerable time discussing Elman Service’s Band. We have spent considerable time discussing Elman Service’s Band, Tribe, Chiefdom, and State hierarchy. In the process, we examine how various institutions may change as societies become larger and more complex. I want you to choose 1 (one) Native American culture from the United States to examine. This can be either a pre-historic or historic Native American society. Prepare a 1-2 page (double spaced) write-up that describes the basic characteristics of each of the following institutions: Economic, Political, Social, Military, and Religious. (You might consider preparing a paragraph on each.) After commenting on the characteristics/organization of these institutions, tell me where you think your culture would fall within Service’s hierarchy. Were there any challenges, surprises,or inconsistencies you noticed by trying to “classify” your culture.
