Winnebago Trickster Tales

...The Winnebago Trickster Cycle Throughout history many people have tried to put themselves above nature. Most of the time people end up finding out that nature isn’t something to take for granted. Having stories to teach lessons to future generations is critical. That is why The Winnebago Trickster Cycle came into existence for the tribe. By keeping the story’s characters names simple like Trickster, it makes the story much easier to relate to its intended audience. Trickster definitely lived out his name in both stories, which had to do with nature. Between the two texts, The Winnebago Trickster Cycle 23-25 was more effective at teaching the lesson, that no one should put themselves above nature. Although humans are the superior beings on this planet, nature always finds a way to remind people how insignificant humans really are. Whether it is an outbreak of tornados, or just a really bad case of poison ivy, nature finds a way to remind. Trickster shows that side people think that they are indestructible. Nature also has a way of warning people of what is to come. An example of this today would be kids playing outside while there is thunder. In the beginning of this travel Trickster gets his warning. While on his second journey in the story, he comes upon a voice. The voice said, “He who chews me will defecate; he will defecate!”(108). Trickster then comes to find out that it is a bulb on a bush that is saying this. This is an example of nature warning him, ahead of time,...

Summary's individual style is not confined to penetration into the inner properties of language means and stylistic devices. The writers of a given period in the development of the literary language contribute greatly to establishing the system of norms of their period. It is worth a passing note that the investigations of language norms at a given period are to a great extent maintained on works of men-of-letters. One of the essential properties of a truly individual style is its permanence. It has great powers of endurance. It is easily recognized and never loses its aesthetic value. The form into which the ideas are wrought assumes a greater significance and therefore arrests our attention. The language of a truly individual style becomes de-automatized. It may be said that the form, i.e. the language means themselves, generate meaning. This will be shown later when we come to analyse the nature and functions of stylistic devices. The idea of individual style brings up the problem of the correspondence between thought and expression. Many great minds have made valuable observations on the interrelation between these concepts. There is a long list of books in which the problem is discussed from logical, psychological, philosophical, aesthetic, pragmatic and purely linguistic points of view. Here we shall only point out the most essential sides of the problem, viz. a) thought and language are inseparable; b) language is a means of materializing thought. It follows then that......

...Trickster Plays a major role in some figures represented in this course. Midsummer Night's Dream & Hotel Emibago. What is the Trickster? What image does Shakespeare give him? Shakespears "A Midsummer Night's Dream", was written at a highly liminal moment in European History, the end of the Renaissance and the unfolding of the Reformation. Shakespeare attributes a power to images through which humans can be incited to act, in particular fall in love, and assigns a decisive role in the manipulation of such images to the trickster figure of folk tales and myths. Throughout this essay I will be discussing the figure of the Trickster, what he is and the image which Shakespeare portrays to us. The Trickster is traditionally known as a person who cheats or decieves people. Typically makes up for physical weakness with a cunning and subversive humour. In relation MSND, Puck, AKA Robin Goodfellow, AKA The Trickster, is a mischievous fairy who delights in playing pranks on mortals. He is the closest thing to a protagonist and is responsible for many of the complications throughout the play. EG. The 2 lovers and Bottoms head. In the tricksters jokes there is always something out of place. This is because the Tricksters entertainment is never "good clear fun": someone always pays for it. The jokes are too strong, rude and even cruel: they make fun of already frail people and those undergoing tasks. The one thing he cannot stand is genuine involvement......

Transcending Myths: Trickster

...RPH 351  Haruka Koda (A1167731)  7/01/14  Transcending Myths: Trickster    “The  Power  of  Black  Music:  Interpreting  its  History  from  Africa  to  the  United  States”,  by  Samuel  A.  Floyd,  observes  a  new  way  of  listening to  the music  of black  America, and  appreciating its  profound  contribution  to  American  music.  Examining   folklore,  myths,  music,  and  rituals,  Floyd  offers  cultural  heritage  in  modernism.  He   recognizes  European  influences,   while  demonstrating  how  much  black  music  has  continued  to  share  with  its African  counterparts.  One  of these elements that  African  music  has  attributed  is  the  element  of  “Tricksters.”  Although  Tricksters  is  a  motif  existent  in  times  before  Chris,  Tricksters   have  been  transmitted  to  be  taught  and  learned  in  cultures  in  the  West  and  Japan today.  The  archetypal  “Trickster”  is  allegorical   or  a  metaphorical  teaching  in  stories of a polytheistic  culture  and  religion.  According  to  Floyd,  in African stories, “Trickster tales are  not just  for humor, but  to  instill  discipline  and  ingrain  fear,  a  sense   of  accomplishment,  pride,  and  humility”1   Floyd  continues  on  to  explain  that  stories,  such  as  one’s  with  Tricksters,  are  transmitted  into  words  and  edited  into   methods  for  people  to  understand  it better.  Music  is  the example that he  gives, noting that  both  people  within ......

...Summary of Online Degrees Could Be a Good Fit for Some In the article Online Degrees Could Be a Good Fit for Some Teens Briana Boyington is portraying that there is no correct type of college. There are different options for a different variety of learners and their different circumstances; whether it be a job, financial instability, or a student just needs relief from classroom learning. These options include four year universities, community colleges, and online degree programs. There are positives and negatives for every option. A few negatives for online degree programs is students lose some of the social interactions with other students and faculty that occur when attending school on campus. Employers are sometimes weary of hiring students that only have an online degree, campuses that offer both online and in class learning are looked at more highly. It is made clear in this article that online learning is a robust choice for a student who is self-determined, not likely a successful path for a student who has struggled in the classroom. When graduating high school online degree programs aren’t typically broadcasted, or encouraged. Most teenagers are set on living the college life so to speak. Boyington suggests that even though online learning is not the typical pathway, it could be a great path to success for many students who can’t go away to college as initially planned. A good online school would be one that inspires students to interact and get as close to......

Trickster Tale

...Jamie 8/26/15 Mrs. Williams Trickster Tale There once was a peaceful Indian village, prospering with people and all the resources they needed to survive. One night for the celebration of a new born baby in the village they were having a ritual. The ritual consisted of a bonfire and dancing as they worshipped the gods and thanked them for the newborn. One lonely coyote that had been alone for quite awhile noticed a fire in the distance and decided to draw closer for he was curious. He got as close as he could without drawing attention or giving himself away. Coyote observed the situation at hand. He saw the Indian baby all tucked away in his mother’s arms and thought to himself what a good meal that would be. The sly and sneaky coyote quickly made a plan of attack. He would make a distraction by howling as loud as he could and then charge to the village and grab the babe and take off. Coyote knew it was risky but he had faith he could get away with it. He let out a howl and a couple yips and then knew it was time. He made his charge. Everyone started to scream out of shock and terror; he caught the mother off guard and swept the baby boy out of her arms. But, he hadn’t made it out yet. A group of the warriors surrounded him; he tried to bolt and successfully got through their legs. The men were on his tracks though. The Iroquois were not foolish and would not give up finding the newborn. They kept chasing coyote and finally wore him out. He had given up. Coyote......

Tricksters in Native American Lit

...Characteristically a Trickster – A Critical Review He’s sly, cunning, good-looking and suave. He appears from nowhere and returns to the same. He is your friend and your enemy. Keep a close eye on him, but also believe what he says, for he may help you to see clearly. Who is this man? He is the TRICKSTER! He is present in nearly all Native American stories; however, the form to which he adapts is constantly changing. From dirty old men, to young good-looking heart breakers, the trickster provides an outlet for much humor, irony and truth. It is from the article “Ambigere: The Euro-American Picaro and the Native American” by Franchot Ballinger that most of the trickster qualities are described. “A roguish traveler(s)” (21-39), the Trickster is seen as a character who rebels against moral and civil code. Their tales, which exist mostly in myth, are notable for their lack of an adequate ending. The ending is nearly impossible to accomplish because the Trickster is a figure that never ends. Reappearing in nearly every Native American piece of fiction, the Trickster’s story continues, although the persona changes. “This young man (occasionally women) usually (by the standards of society) are of low birth or of obscure origins (perhaps orphaned…) and come from a disreputable background… surviving by his wits, which often means living by begging, theft, deception…” (21-39). Many of these traits, present is so many Trickster figures, have developed into genres of......

De Havilland

...Executive Summary Financial analyst, Kim Tomar is a Financial Analyst at De Havilland Inc, a Canadian aircraft manufacturing company. Her responsibility within procurement is to evaluate bids and make recommendations to De Havilland Source Selection Board (SSB). She must make a recommendation on a supplier for flap shrouds and equipment bay doors. Since Dollard Plastics has failed to remain competitive by addressing the high pricing by unwilling to lower their price, she has solicited a number of competitive bids from 9 suppliers. We currently have sufficient supply of flaps and doors till the end of 1993, giving us approximately 17 months of inventory. Recent changes at de Havilland meant that we wanted to establish long term, cooperative contracts with suppliers. Normally 6-8 weeks were permitted for the vendors to return their completed bids. The value of the contract under consideration required the more senior management participated. The Bidder Selection Board (BSB) was comprised of representatives from finance and materiel areas. The BSB had four major objectives; review historical data in purchasing and cost patterns, financial data, quality and product support, secondly they produced an estimate on future purchasing trends for the part as well as new costs and finally they assembled a list of potential bidders. Once all bids were normalized they analyzed them, picked the likeliest candidate and a physical inspection was conducted of the vendors plant; this......
