For my signature assignment I have chosen ancient Egypt. It was tough and I was caught
between this and Taino, as my ancestors were likely Taino based off where my family
immigrated from. I’ve always had such a fascination for ancient Egypt and all the mysteries
buried there. It was around and ruled for almost 30 centuries, around 3100 B.C. to its conquest
by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C (History.com Editors, 2009). The united states are influenced
by the ancient Egyptians more than we think. They were innovators in language, mathematics,
religion, writing and architecture. The Egyptian society as a whole was a collective society as the
“needs of one’s family or community typically take precedence over one’s personal needs or
desires” (Cultural Atlas). They often work in large groups, for example the pyramids were built
solely by them.
Egyptians found beauty and art in everything around them. Besides the fact that they
were innovators when it came to architecture, they had a love and fascination for artwork. The
pyramids and homes of many were covered with artwork and decorated with paintings, carved
stone images, hieroglyphs and three-dimensional statues. They were also big on religion, as
many of them were Muslims and believed in the after-life. They followed certain post-death
rituals in order to grant themselves life beyond death. They also followed “old-school” roles
when it came to genders. They tend to live in a home consisting of three generations or so, with
the eldest male in the house being the head of the house. Women would tend to the home and
children, as the men made most of the decision making. Ancient Egypt was a time many feel to
have been forgotten, yet it’s a place that seems to be frozen in time, with its secrets still making
their way to the surface.
