The Boogobbleho (Leschia's Friday at 11:30)
Welcome to the land of the Boogobbleho!
The Boogobbleho inhabit the arctic tundra on the southernmost end of the eastern continent, a region recognized for long winters and unwavering cold temperatures. The Boogobbleho are an egalitarian nation, which is visibly evident through the equal roles portrayed by males and females. The Boogobbleho hunt and gather sea life, small game, plants, and berries, depending on what is available in their harsh environment. Due to this unrelenting environment the Boogobbleho are a very mobile, nuclear family oriented community based on maximizing resources and food accumulation through monogamous, arranged marriages. The government in this area is uncentralized but the people do have certain sanctions for settling disputes and some members of society hold more influence then other members.
Environment: Arctic tundra including a main land and many small islands.
Language & Gender: Mostly egalitarian except in hunting large animals, which is done by the men.
Subsistence & Exchange: Highly adaptable to a changing environment and food supply. Gift exchange is commonly practiced.
Sex, Love, & Marriage: Arranged, monogamous marriages.
Family & Household: Small, mobile, nuclear family units.
Kinship/Social Organization: We follow an Eskimo kinship pattern that involves bilateral descent.
Political Organization: A group of Elders advises our uncentralized band of people.
Religion: The belief in Animism develops from values in relationships and dependence on environment.
Art & Cultural Values: Art is based on functionality.
Comments, Notes, & Suggestions: A way for us to communicate and develop our culture.
The Boogobbleho are a strong band of individuals who prove their vigor through dominance in survival in a harsh, limited environment. To gain a deeper understanding of how we have adapted our given resources to create the Boogobbleho culture we have deeply examined The Fuegian, and more specifically, the Yaghan cultures of Tierra del Fuego.
