Demeter and Persephone
B. Humankind suffered as a result of one individuals impulses because there was basically no food and she made it so mankind would die of hunger in a way. Demeter put her feelings first instead of anybody else's.
C. This myth suggests that the effects of an individuals actions on a community as a whole is meaning that even one person can effect a whole group in great measures instead of just themselves.
Popocatepetl and Ixtlaccihuatl
B. It is important to consider the needs of a community over an individual because what one person wants for themselves may not be the best decision for the community. It may effect everyone.
Sun and Moon in a Box
B. In a way i think it is Coyote's fault for losing the sun and moon because he had already promised to not open the box and to not let is curiosity get the better of him. He let someone believe him and to let them trust him just to do the opposite and let them down. His actions led to something no one wanted, but also it isn't the worst thing to learn and experience.
C. This folk tale implies that this individuals responsibility to the community is to be careful. Eagle messed up by trusting someone. Coyote messed up by not controlling himself. Both of these actions led to chaos. This is meaning you have a role to your community and every decision you make has an outcome, but it's what you do that determines if it's a good or bad outcome.
