How does the availability of natural resources impact a region?
Is culture conflict unavoidable?
Thesis: Culture conflict is unavoidable in Africa due to the fact that the geography of the region causes natural separation.
How Does Geography Influence its Culture?
The geography of Africa influences its culture because it separates its people into different parts/regions of Africa.
Africa is made up of 4 main climate zones including the desert, the subtropical ridge, the Sahel, and the tropical climate. The summers are very hot and the winters are mild.
Culture doesn't always move people around based on geography because there are many types of culture, such as dancing and music, but instruments are made from natural resources like wood.
Culture conflict can be avoidable with separation, but different cultural groups can still hide and ignore, but soon they will figure out a way to create a conflict, just like the one between the Hutu's and Tutsi's.
Counter Claim: The availability of natural resources can also impact a region by building houses out of wood (trees), and that can endanger species.
Natural separation causes different cultures to start. Part of culture is religion and each culture wants its religion to be the best and the dominant religion and have everyone join. This will lead to people taken away and holding them hostage until they join that culture.
