The author of this essay gives various examples of how The Age of Imperialism compares to the movie Avatar. "The way the Sky People interact with the Na’vi when they first get to Pandora was similar to the way the Europeans and First Nations people of North America interacted." This is one of the few examples that she uses.
The author of this Prezi agrees that there is a lot of similarities between the Age of Imperialism and Avatar. "In the Battle of Adwa, Ethiopia is one of the only countries in Africa who was able to completely resist European rule... The Na'avi people were able to prevent the Skypeople from conquering their land." This is talking about how the Na'vi compare to the Africans because they both joined forces with others to defeat a common enemy.
This video talks about how Europe colonizes many countries. They do it because it means more land and more resources. "The most important technology that enabled Europeans to dominate Africa was guns." John Green talks about Imperialism in Africa, and how the only reason that Europe managed to defeat them was due to their technology.
This movie shows us the story of a country (America) that tries to invade the Na'vi's land. They send people as Avatars to learn their ways. "Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture." Eventually, the soldiers get tired of waiting and destroy the things the Na'vi value the most. This causes the scientists and Na'vi to join together and battle with the soldiers.
