After reading about their unique culture, compose a summary of their social, political, and economic characteristics according to the outline below.
What is life like among the Yanomami? (20 points)

Remember, all work must be submitted as a formal paper with an assignment title, as well as an introduction, paragraph for each topic, and a conclusion.
No more than two short quotes may be used. Short means less than one line.
Each Internet assignment should be between 3-5 full pages of information. A bibliography with at least three references, in addition to your text, should be included at the end of the paper.Each essay requires at least one book reference other than your text. This must be an actual book. An online book is considered an online source. I suggest going to the library and searching the encyclopedias in the reference section. Ten points will be deducted for each essay missing the required book source. Essays submitted without references will NOT be graded. Blogs are never considered references. Only .org, .gov, or .edu sources should be used. .Com or .net sources are unreliable and should not be used. There will be a 10 point deduction for each of these unacceptable sites!
