Focus

Learning about other cultures is important. It helps us understand the interplay between beliefs and actions.

Below are links to specific information on a few cultures. Hopefully this may inspire you to seek out more information.

Remember, lists of cultural guidelines are generalizations. Just as not all Wisconsinites love cheese, beer and the Packers, not all members of one culture subscribe to all of the same cultural beliefs!

(Thanks to Shiva Bidar-Sielaff for this concept!)
