Celebration of nations is a festival that goes on every year in Rolla Missouri. This event involves a parade with flags representing more than 80 nations. This is an all day event. It celebrates different cultures and the whole community gets involved. The university, Missouri S&T is this host of this event. At the end of the parade there is always an announcer that explains the main purpose for the festival and welcomes each flag. They do this festival because several students from different nations attend the university. With this being a college town, this gives the community an opportunity to get involved and notice the students representing a different nation. “Getting involved in the Celebration of Nations event is not only easy, but also very rewarding. Whether you are an American or international student, a member of the faculty or staff at S&T, or a resident of the larger Rolla community, everyone is welcome to join the festivities” (Missouri S&T). This event is free. The community gets to listen to different types of music from different live band and hear different instruments. They also have the chance to try different foods and learn about different cultures. There are always authentic displays too. “You’ll also find beautiful and affordable crafts and delicious international treats, meals and drinks you can buy” (Missouri S&T, p.2). Families are able to bring their passports and get them stamped for free. It is like being at several different

In August of 2016, Kaepernick began his protest during a NFL preseason game where he initially sat during the singing of the national anthem. At the time, his rebellious efforts became unnoticed, but he soon enough made headlines when someone took a photo of him sitting during the anthem. Thus a social issue was born from the public’s reaction from the photo.The negativity of the public’s reaction stemmed from the norm that it is customary that people raise their right hand over their heart while facing the flag when the Star-Spangled-Banner is playing, so if one does not follow this norm it is identified showing disrespect. Inevitably, the prediction of the people’s reaction were to be expected as they were outraged when Kaepernick broke the norm. Although, it is legal for individuals not to follow these sacrosanct protocols, citizens of the United States find this norm obligatory.Would you stand by and constantly watch the same social issues to keep reoccurring in your neighborhood? Not only that but it keeps happening to different people by the same organization? When numerous acts of police brutality occurred, Colin Kaepernick decided to protest. He could no longer stand by and do nothing; he decided to take a knee. For professional National Football League (NFL) player, Colin Kaepernick, his response was “no”. One of the last waves that came toward the end of the summer is the kneeling while the national anthem played during sporting events. When Kaepernick decided to
Although the world climate around exploitation has altered in the last few years, mostly moving away from the exploited industrial countries such as China, it is still important to look at what was happening in China so that it can be understood in connection with today. The documentary by Robert Redmon, Mardi Gras: Made in China focuses on the exploited Chinese factory workers crafting various beads for the Americans to throw at each other for sexual gratification. The documentary does a good job jumping back and forth between the factory workers and the celebrators of Mardis Gras, creating an interesting parallel, implicating the absolute uselessness in the beads for such a large cost. Marx's theories of exploitation through Capitalism can be tied too well to the Chinese-Mardi Gras beads exploitation, as the Chinese workers were put through an extreme form of Capitalist exploitation that even Marx may never have expected.
This is about a culture called Nacirema that is practiced in many different place and was brought to the attention of the Anthropologist attention by Professor Linton to talk about this culture that was poorly understood. The Nacirema is a type of culture that is summed up as that these people that believe in this culture that the human body is ugly and that the natural tendencies are meant to debilitate and cause disease. They are also big believes in rituals and ceremonies in the household to preform these ceremonies either as a family but in most cases it was privately. Where they would receive charms and other items form the medicine man of the community that would help with a certain problem. They would use these magic items to help with
The Krewe of Cleopatra is an all women crew that represents strength, beauty, and femininity. Earlier this month, I got to see the Cleopatra crew performed and it was an astonishing experience. I lived here in New Orleans for nine years, but I have never participated in a parade before. Even though it was a popular culture, I was always too lazy to go. This year I wanted to do something more than just staying home and play game, I wanted to go out and experience the atmosphere, but more specifically I wanted to experience the Mardi Gras atmosphere. It was a unique atmosphere that I certainly love to go again.
“Dallas is an amazing city, so I hope that when people come here they don’t see this as the Wild Wild West in terms as the cowboy stereotype,” King said. Hopefully this festival will achieve just that, for people from all over the world have expressed interest in Dallas, and this festival gives incentive for tourists and Dallasites to explore the
Citizens of Anthem, you have been living in a bland society for too long. I have been reading about your society while living in an individualistic society. I your leaders have been fooling you all these years. You are not all equal like your leaders make you believe.
This past weekend I visited the Numunga powwow and the cultural traditions are absolutely phenomenal. Being free to the public to experience and expressive dance that it routed back to the ancestors. True expression of one's diversity with intense beauty. I am not Native American but how I do treasure and appreciate different cultures. In these type of social situations communities are learning and exciting way. With the goal of acceptance of all people that could have personal meaning and understanding into the future.
The community festival is a nonprofit organization that has a tax exempt status as well as a history of over 20 years. The organization and the event are run by a board of directors and a small, permanent staff composed of no more than five employees at any given time. The goal of the festival is to promote local arts and crafts and to support local artists by providing a venue through which they can sell their work, advertise their work, and develop and expand their customer base. Because the festival has been held for many years, it is well-known in the
A particularly salient example of this can be found in an editorial in the Pantagraph entitled The German Days Celebration: "A Great Occasion," which provided "a rare testimony to the capacity of our institutions for assimilating the blood of every Caucasian land when thousands of the old world thus meet to honor their native country and at the same time hold highest admiration for their adopted country and pledge it their unqualified allegiance." The editorial ended with a note that "the people of Bloomington are indebted to their German-American fellow- citizens, far and near." The celebration was reported as an event that would live on in memory and "[c]hildren of today will be able to tell the children of tomorrow of Bloomington's celebration of 1913, when the nationalities of a free republic mingled, joined hands and marched in unison
We’ve all heard of the festival being a scene with women flashing for beads and I totally expected the streets (especially Bourbon Street) to be filled with half-naked drunk people. What I found instead, were elaborately dressed festival-goers of all ages celebrating, laughing and expressing themselves through music, art, and dance. While many costumes and signs were humorous and outrageous, I never once felt anything other than love and positivity around
Now, this is what you call a celebration, each year is exciting more and more. I’ve met a variety of people, from various parts of Africa, and from many cities in the United States. I would sum it [Juneteenth Festival] up as a huge family reunion in the park.
After carefully reading over Charlotte’s rough draft, I was able to have a clear understanding of the meaning behind the first mass-produced soft drink Moxie, as well as the Moxie Festival which takes place every year in Lisbon, Maine during the month of July. I felt the second paragraph introduces the topic very well because the author goes into great detail behind the creator of Moxie (Dr. Augustin Thompson), and the fact that people travel great distances in order to attend the Moxie Parade. According to the author, “The Moxie Festival is aimed to be an all age festival, but younger kids usually have the most fun.” Another positive element that I wish to point out in this essay is the conversation that occurs between the author and an individual
Initial Preview: Throughout this speech you will learn about the birth and development of the modern music festival, how they have transformed, and why they have.
Another part of the event that I found culturally puzzling was the Ekka strawberry sundae. Refer to "Royal Queensland Show | Ekka - Ekka Royal Queensland Show" (2017) The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation has funded around $15 million in research over the past 20 years, with the help of regular donors and people buying sundaes at Ekka. The foundation fund the research team to investigate some world’s biggest health challenges such as heart disease and mental illness. They help young researchers continue their work and develop new aspects of research. The organization runs the Ekka Strawberry Sundae with the help nearly 3000 volunteers each year ("Royal Queensland Show | Ekka - Ekka Royal Queensland Show", 2017). The idea of strawberry sundae culture help the foundation raise money, it is the social relationship between the society, the volunteers and the foundation. Refer to "Social Relations definition | Psychology
A cultural event that I have attended in the past that has had a memorable affect on my life was a Native American Powwow. This event takes place every year, Thanksgiving weekend in Tucson, AZ. I arrived in the late afternoon, as the sun was going down. I remember seeing many different types of people, from tourists to the different Native American performers. The physical setting of this particular celebration was outside, and based around, one main circle. Drums were beating so loud, you could feel the pound inside your chest. Different activities were going on all around, such as dancers, vendors, and a huge variety of foods to choose from. The circular dancing arena is known as the arbor, this area is blessed before any of the events
