And we are finished with another course and a good learning experience. This lecture is a touch hodge podge and probably wouldn't stand on its own too well, however it works as the finale of the course. It is fascinating to see how much of ancient American culture still impacts South America. As a North American USAer, there doesn't seem to be too much native culture in our daily lives but it certainly still seems relevant in the other hemisphere of the New World.
