Your research project will be about a cultural family type. Your family type will either need to be from another place in the world or it can be from an indigenous group from the U.S. or anywhere. I have attached some indigenous cultures from around the world that you may use.
You will need to write some context about the cultural family type – give some history of the culture; the common religion in that culture; why might that family type be important within that religion, culture, or environment. The paper should also describe what a “typical” family might look like in that culture.
For example: In an American nuclear family, a typical family might be a mother, father, and two children. In an American nuclear family paper, I might write about how nuclear families use to have many more children because it was better for the family to have more hands to help around the house or farm. However, in the modern day, having fewer children allows the parents to provide more for their children. (you will not be able to use the “American nuclear family.”)
