Why I’m not critical of Magi: if no one but those who belong to one culture are allowed to depict other cultures and we actually hold up to that, we no longer live in any resemblance of a free society where even calling a title “fiction” can save you from litigation. The safe answer is to not represent anyone but your own kind. The word “harm” (you picked on one word so so will I) is subjective, what qualifies as hard can change rapidly, and the word ignores the good such a work like “Magi” may actually do in instilling interest to those who would otherwise not care. Once again, I don’t like Korean drama, I find them boring. I need something more universally appealing before I will watch an episode to help me learn the language, which is my goal. Having something like “Adventure Time” have a Korean talking dragon sparked some curiosity and now I’m able to have conversation in Korean.
Death and Afterlife. When a sachem died and his successor was nominated and confirmed, the other tribes of the League were informed and the League council met to perform a condolence ceremony in which the deceased sachem was mourned and the new sachem was installed. The sachem's condolence ceremony was still held on Iroquois reservations in the 1970s. Condolence ceremonies were also practiced for common people. In early historic times the dead were buried in a sitting position facing east. After the burial, a captured bird was released in the belief that it carried away the spirit of the deceased. In earlier times the dead were left exposed on a wooden scaffolding, and after a time their bones were deposited in a special house of the deceased. The Iroquois believed, as some continue to believe today, that after death the soul embarked on a journey and series of ordeals that ended in the land of the dead in the sky world. Mourning for the dead lasted a year, at the end of which time the soul's journey was believed to be complete and a feast was held to signify the soul's arrival in the land of the dead.
