Videos in Cultural Anthropology

Below is a video that documents the Hopi's Origin Story. The study of religion and language, such as the one featured in this video, are important factors (but not the only ones) that shape culture. 



The Anthropologist follows American teenager, Katie Crate, over the course of five years as she travels alongside her mother Susie, a cultural anthropologist, studying the impact of climate change on different communities. Their journey parallels that of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead, who for decades sought to understand how global change affects remote cultures.
