Satisfactory Essays
On January 1, 2016, the Sikh float is entered in the Tournament of Roses in Pasadena, California. The float, Vasakhi, is named after the harvest festival in Punjub, India where Sikh originated from. It features a display of cultural games, an ethic bazaar, foods, peacocks, embroideries, and a bearded Sikh man with a bright yellow turban on a white horse. Sikh Americans hoped that the float would influence others and give them an understanding of Sikh religion and its contributions to our society. Besides creating an awareness of the Sikh religion and culture, the float is used to display how diverse people are and how people need to appreciate and accept that difference.
This relates to how people accepted the teachings of Muhammad and Islam.
