Title: CHAPTER 6 CULTURAL GEOGRAPHY


1
CHAPTER 6CULTURAL GEOGRAPHY
  • Cultural geography is a sub-field within human
    geography. Cultural geography is the study of
    cultural products and norms and their variations
    across and relations to spaces and places. It
    focuses on describing and analyzing the ways
    language, religion, economy, government and other
    cultural phenomena vary or remain constant, from
    one place to another and on explaining how humans
    function spatially

P0PULATION DENSITY DISTRIBUTION
The Sun Belt is a region of the United States
generally considered to stretch across the South
and Southwest. The Sun Belt has seen substantial
population growth in recent decades, partly
fueled by a surge in retiring baby boomers who
migrate domestically, as well as the influx of
immigrants, both legal and illegal. Also, over
the past several decades, air conditioning has
made it easier for people to deal with the
oppressive heat that grips the region during the
summertime.

The Cities
  • Urbanization The concentration of population in
    the cities
  • Metropolitan 50k () people in an area
  • Suburbs those who live just outside the
    metropolitan area.
  • WHAT NUMBER OF AMERICANS LIVE IN METROPOLITAN
    AREAS?

Coastal Cities
  • Megalopolis
  • Houston
  • Los Angeles
  • New Orleans
  • Miami

  • Urbanization- is the physical growth of urban
    areas from rural areas as a result of population
    immigration to an existing urban area. Effects
    include change in density and administration
    services. Urbanization is attributed to growth of
    cities. Urbanization is also defined by the
    United Nations as movement of people from rural
    to urban areas with population growth equating to
    urban migration. The UN has projected that half
    of the world's population would live in urban
    areas at the end of 2008.

Critical Thinking
  • How are the population patterns of Canada and the
    U.S. different and the same?

9
What are some of the advantages and
disadvantages of living in a megalopolis?
  • Advantages
  • Disadvantages

10
INLAND CITIES
  • These cities are located within the boundary of
    that country.
  • ex. Dallas, Detroit and Atlanta.

HISTORY GOVERNMENT6.2
  • US and Canada share much in geography.
  • Taken different historical and cultural paths.
  • Native Americans, colonist eventually developed
    into these two independent countries.
  • Discuss the key role of physical geography in the
    emergence of the US and Canada.

12
History
  • 10,000 years ago nomads migrated across the
    Bering Strait land bridge from Asia to North
    America to populate
  • At the same time Central And South America was
    being populated as well.

Native Americans
  • Native Americans used irrigation to farm dry land
    in the deserts of the S.W.
  • Great Plains they hunted buffalo.
  • Wood land of the east Mississippi river traded
    sea shells and freshwater pearls.
  • North east they hunted deer, turkey, geese and
    squirrels.
  • North east usually were tight knit communities
    with developed systems of government and had
    trade mastered to an art.

16
European enslavement
  • When Europeans arrived as colonists in North
    America, Native Americans changed their practice
    of slavery dramatically. They found that British
    settlers, especially those in the southern
    colonies, purchased or captured Native Americans
    to use as forced labor in cultivating tobacco,
    rice, and indigo. Native Americans began selling
    war captives to whites rather than integrating
    them into their own societies. As the demand for
    labor in the West Indies grew with the
    cultivation of sugar cane, Europeans enslaved
    Native Americans for export to the "sugar
    islands." Accurate records of the numbers
    enslaved do not exist. Scholars estimate tens of
    thousands of Native Americans may have been
    enslaved by the Europeans.
  • The slave trade of Native Americans lasted only
    until around 1730, and it gave rise to a series
    of devastating wars among the tribes. The Indian
    wars of the early 18th century, combined with the
    increasing importation of African slaves,
    effectively ended the Native American slave trade
    by 1750. Colonists found it too easy for Native
    American slaves to escape, and the wars took the
    lives of numerous colonial slave traders. The
    remaining Native American groups banned together
    to face the Europeans from a position of
    strength. Many surviving Native American peoples
    of the southeast joined confederacies such as the
    Choctaw, the Creek, and the Catawba for
    protection.
  • Native American women were at risk for rape
    whether they were enslaved or not, as in many
    southern communities, there were a
    disproportionate number of men in the early
    colonial years. Both Native American and African
    enslaved women suffered rape and sexual
    harassment by slaveholders.

Critical Thinking
  • How did the physical geography influence the
    cultures of the regions first settlers?
  • What was life like for the earliest nomadic
    settlers?
