In our society today, culture is not what it used to be hundreds of years ago. There is no more “pure” culture. Our culture today is enriched with many different traditions and customs that are being shared and adopted. Due to emigration and immigration, a variety of diverse customs, beliefs, and knowledge moved with every exiting and entering human being. Thus, changing and shaping the culture of many. Throughout the world, the beliefs and religious views of culture are dissimilar around the world. By taking the time to read, listen and learn about certain people’s culture, there will be knowledge and understanding that will be gained.

In the past couple of weeks we have participated in activities, discussed, and listened to presentations about Indigenous culture and how it is integrated in education, and what that means for our roles as teachers. This is a topic that I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to teach, and is a subject that I’ve always been interested in and enjoyed learning about.
My life experiences with different cultures began in my hometown, when Prairie Island Tribal Council members educated students about their culture through lectures, dance, and band performances. This allowed me to appreciate my Mdewakanton classmates’ culture. My exposure to different cultures expanded during an internship at a medical examiner’s office, because death is universal. I learned being culturally respectful and sensitive begins by listening to their stories and experiences before answering their questions honestly and reassuring them the deceased would be treated with respect. As I traveled to rural Honduras on a medical brigade and as a student studying abroad in Italy and Germany, I realized by listening and observing without judgement, I began to understand the cultures. In addition, I discovered generalizations of a culture give an incomplete view and I cannot assume I understand a culture. Instead, individuals are unique based on experiences as well as their culture.
Before: what I am thinking about before I jump into this 5 hour journey to a new culture I am unfamiliar with is what questions can I ask that isn't going to create a huge discomfort zone for those at the NASS on campus. I want to show that I am truly curious about their culture and how I can connect myself (taking note) of the things we have in common that is past ?race? and more of morals and the background growing up.

Disaffiliation is a pledge to give up your letters and let go of any biases to help a PNM through the process of Formal Recruitment to find a sisterhood she belongs too. Gamma Chi's are a critical part of the recruitment process, because you must be selfless. You cannot sway one of your PNM's to a chapter just because you love her and you are in the chapter. You also should not bash any of our wonderful chapters. Being elimination any biases toward our chapters, we are able to guide our PNM's into making the best choice for each of them individually. I was a PNM that want to be in the same chapter as my gamma chi just because I thought she was so amazing and great. I think giving up our letter and making sure not to reveal our sorority identity

There are many international students in Mountain View College who are willing to a similar seminar at the campus.

FILAMemphis is the Filipino American Organization in Memphis, Tennessee. It is a nonprofit cultural awareness organization that preserves and promotes Filipino heritage through participation in public events. My family and I have been active members of FILAMemphis for over 11 years now. Not only do we attend the events hosted by this discourse community, we also participate in their programs. For example, every year they hold a Christmas Gala to showcase Filipino culture. During this event, I perform by doing a cultural dance and also dress in traditional Filipino attire to be a model. Throughout the years of being a member of FILAMemphis, I have acquired much knowledge about my culture. By being thousands of miles away from my actual home, the Philippines, this group has definitely molded me into the young, prideful, Filipino woman I am today which is a

Those factors might help the cultural organization to improve the activities performance.
