Please respond to two classmates posts,PLEASE SEPARATE EACH RESPONSEPOST 1:Byparticipating in the religious rituals of their society, people express a senseof togetherness, unity, and belonging. This group aspect of religious practicefosters deeper loyalty to one’s society. To be sure, all reli­gions includerituals that individuals may perform for their own benefit: private prayer topetition the spirits and gods for aid; magic to achieve the same ends morecoercively; taboos that are followed to avoid misfortune; and positive actsthat foster luck, skill, and safety (Crapo, 2013).I consider myself a fairly religiousperson. To answer the question of whether or not Native Americans should beable to perform their ceremonies while incarcerated or in prison, I don’tbelieve there is a direct yes or no that can be associated with that question.There are several underlying factors that must be justified prior to grantingsome of these privileges. First and foremost, the safety of prisoners inaddition to that of the guards must be thoroughly considered. For example, “Prison officials areconcerned that sweat lodges and medicine pouches, normally off-limits tonon-Indians, could be used to conceal contraband weapons or drugs. They fearthat long hair might help inmates escape by making it easy for them to changethe way they look, (Dellios, 1993).” I am all for human rights as discussedduring week 1 of the course as I have a sister that is currently imprisoned. Onthe same token, I believe that committing crimes and being incarcerated thereare certain liberties that are forfeited, because safety and funding have to beconsidered. I do however believe that the same liberties should be granted forall religions on an even and just playing field. If you do for one, you must dofor the other.Crapo, R. H. (2013).

To summarize what theepisode community is, we are writers on this very popular app called EpisodeChoose Your Story. The community gives writers an opportunity to get to knoweach other, ask for help, share ideas, and socialize. I have been a part ofthis community for about four years now and I really enjoy being a part of it.The social control mechanisms that are applied in our group aresocialization, rewards, and gossip and social pressure. SocializationWhen socializing in the episode community I’ve realized that we all have ourown set of morals and principles “Moral values are the attitudes or rules thatgovern our relationships with our fellow human beings” (Crapo, 2013). RewardsIn the episode community we all like to stay positive and give credit whencredit is due “The praise and esteem of other members of the community is onesuch reward” (Crapo, 2013). Gossip and Social PressureAlthough most of the time in the episode community we are positive, thingscan take a huge turn and sometimes we can get a little negative. In the episodecommunity, sometimes we tend to gossip and gossiping leads to arguments withinour community. Which makes more and more people in the community dislike eachother “Most people value the esteem of others, so gossip and community pressurecan be a powerful force in keeping people in line. The key to the effectivenessof gossip is that word eventually gets back to the person being criticized”(Crapo, 2013) References Crapo, Richley. H. (2013) Cultural AnthropologyRetrieved from
