What is your culture?

What does the word “culture” mean to you?

• Do you have a sense of yourself as having a “culture”? Why or why not?

  • What is your culture? How would you describe it, and how do you express it?
  • When did you first understand that your culture was different from others around you? Or has

your culture typically been the dominant one in most of your day to day interactions and

experiences?

  • How is your culture, or aspects of your culture, represented in the media? Are you someone

whose culture is considered the “norm” or “standard” by which all other cultures are judged?

Or are you someone whose culture has been marginalized or stigmatized in our society?

  • What are the best parts of your culture? What are parts you don’t like or wish you could

change?
