This is your ethnography of the Avatar movie. You are analyzing it as if you were observing the culture within the field. The movie was created using Anthropologists to ensure that the Na’Vi would be representative of a true culture. Through examination of the film, you can see the different aspects of the culture that makeup the Na’Vi. Make sure to include reference to the topics we have learned throughout the semester. This should help prepare you for the ethnographic project that is due soon. Including but not limited to:
Tenets of Culture (Learned, Symbolism, Shared, Dynamic, Adaptive/Maladaptive, Integrated)
Religion- Rituals, Belief, Leaders, Etc.
Relationships- Family, Marriage, Kinships
You must submit your written analysis of the film with reference to these items. You are only required to have four of these within your analysis of the film. The word count for you analysis should be 500 words at a minimum.
