different cultures

In humanity class I saw different people with different culture, I learned that although we are from different country with different culture, all of us are from same point “humanity”. I saw different culture especially in poster project. I knew that all cultures are beautiful with a lot of beautiful things.Were we are from or what language we are speaking doesn’t matter the most important thing is all of us are human but with different culture and we should be respectful about all of this beautiful difference.

culture identity


   I learnt that culture identity is base on nationality, ethnicity,religon, social class some nation condition that have it own unique culture. Different culture reflect different habit of life.Different culture have different reasons For example, chinese people would like to save money because chinese national conditons is more people, but less resources. moreover , welfare system is not perfect. In contrast, American people like to save money if they have, due to people can get money from the government if they are low income. Learning culture identity can help me make more friends ,increase the knowledge of religion and so on.

Definition of culture consists of four areas: spiritual culture, behavior culture, institution culture and material culture. This unit talks about different races have different culture. At the beginning, different ethnic and immigration to other countries to accept their culture, who also give up their own culture. (Melting bowl) Up to now, although people immigrated to other countries, they will retain their own culture, to provide the essence of their own culture, blending together into a new culture. (Salad bowl) This is what I have never heard before, but what I learn in this chapter. Now is an era of diversity, people dating platform is coming more and more complex, cultures constantly changed. Culture absorbs the essence of other culture into a new culture, the cultural transformation of speed more and more quickly. We should adapt to the changes of the times, create more new culture. By combining different culture together, to create a new culture.

Cultural Identity Wrap-up (Hoyeon kang)

One thing I learned from this unit on Cultural Identity is how it is important to learn ot understand the diversity. I had a weak of thinking the idea of cultural identity and didn't recognize it and think about that much. Especially in U.S. they have so many different cultures and people from other countries. Some of them lost their identity and merge into a single culture and mix together, which is called "melting pot". However, some of them keep their own culture even though there are various cultures together. From this unit, it made me be sure and know about the cultural identity and made me think about my cultural identity and others. Now i have better acknowledge of being aware of cultural identity and accept it and understand it.

Cultural Identity

                The most important concept I got in this unite on Culture Identity is the Salad Bowl Theory and the Melting Pot Theory. The Salad Bowl Theory means that, after the people immigrated to America, they still continued to have their original culture. For example, there are many China town, Korean town, and Spanish community in the US. Also, a lot cultural characteristic restaurants and stores there. Immigrants would like to live there together. The Melting Pot Theory means the cultures come from other countries are mixed in America. The example of my cousin, she was born in America, her appearance is Chinese, but she do not speak Chinese, as well as her idea is different. She has the anther culture, the American culture. I think this concept is most important because America has a great deal of immigrate, many people live here follow the Salad Bowl Theory, another follow the Melting Pot Theory, so that is very interesting.

Cultural Indentity

The concept the most impact me  of cultural diversity was the concept of melting pot and salad bowl. For example, European people who migrated to the United states assimilated the American culture and leave behind their own cultural identity. While people the opted for the salad bowl also assimilated the American culture but without forget of lose their own cultural identity. People like us reading ,also impact me because it show that  we as society always try our best to separate from others. Although, that we live in diversity country we always try to avoid live with people that are not from the same culture, religion or have the same economic potion like us.

                                       CULTURE DIVERSITY


      I learned from this class culture diversity means people who came from different place has a unique culture and different background, also I learned the different melting pot and salad bowl. some new arrive immigrants never loss their culture. When they came to America. they keep like melting pot. for instance they eat like their culture foods and wear clothes, also they celebrate holidays by their culture. for instance like country people use date Ge'ze. its one of the most ancient in the world still used by Ethiopia church. this kind of language, we used on celebrate day, such as new-year , charismas. on the other hand some people when they arrived from various culture American changed their culture like melting pot.

Ethiopia has a unique traditional food and drink. for instance wet(beef, eggs,onion) this kind of food is very spicy.it can not eat anybody. it mixed called by my language berebre(spicy). on the other hand is called injera(bread) its accoblished with spicy food. the drinks called bunna(coffee). this kind of drink mixed with boil water, also prepare just by women. the women wears dress traditional cloths and get ready. on the other hand is  called tej. this kind of drink its like alchol. most time prepare on wedding time or something celebrate. because its difficulty to prepare and takes long time.

Living a cultures community

          An American community is big culture diversity. The important things I learned to accept and respect the cultures from different background, language, clothing, and religions by living a multicultural country. I grew in china, by then I came to the U.S. I am alreadly  living American for four years, I was never care about my own culture, and I only cared about how I could fit in American life. In fact, I felt struggled and ashamed, I tried extremely hard to ignore my own culture that were surrounding me. After this class, I think there is agreement about accept and respect Multiracial cultures in U.S. In fact, I feel I have responsible to identity my own culture by living in the U.S. community, also I accept and respect others cultures that the cultures diversity is becoming part of my life. I also realized that we are  the " same" peoples like we alway are .

My Cultural Identity

            I am going to introduce my poster about My Cultural Identity.
         My original country is China, so for the Chinese part I posted a picture of dim sum. Dim sum is a kind of famous Chinese food in America, and it come from Guangdong, my hometown. In Guangdong, people usually eat din sum for breakfast. Also, Cantonese would like invite others to have a breakfast, they will eat dim sum, drink tea, chat, and have a good time. That why din sum has many kinds and so nice. As a result, dim sum has a special meaning for Cantonese.
         The place influenced me a lot is my high school. I received education, lived, and made friends there. The picture is a statue of Confucius in my school. Confucius is the symbol of Chinese education.    
         For the American part, I gave an example of Thanksgiving Day. That is my first time enjoy the Thanksgiving Day in America. I took these pictures at my aunt’s home, I ate turkey, got gifts from family, and go shopping. I deeply felt the American culture on it.
         The other thing I post is fitness. Different from China, fitness is a healthy lifestyle in America. When I was in China, I did not like to go to gym. However, after I came to this country, I became to enjoy this healthy lifestyle.                    
           Besides Chinese culture, I was influenced many American culture after I came here.


kurdistan, my country is land of kurds. We have colourfull culture, special foods, like dolmeh, barbasel and spacial traditiona cloths and holidays like newroz.
Kurdish traditional clothes are an ongoing part of kurdish culture. Our clothes never gone out of fashion. We wear our clothes in special holidays like newroz. Kurdish clothes are colourful  and beautiful. 

Cultural Identity

    I learned about Cultural diversity is important because our country, workplaces, and schools more and more of various cultural, racial, and ethnic groups. We can learn from one another, but first we must have a level of understanding about each other in order to facilitate collaboration and cooperation. Learning about other cultures helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live, and helps dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups. Furthermore, this diversity makes our country a more interesting place to live, as people from diverse cultures contribute language skills, new way thinking, new knowledge, and different experiences.
