Re: Orca Whale Conservation

Nice topic! I've always found Orcas to be interesting sea animals (although I don't know much about them). many different cultures have legends of the killer whale, it might be interesting to look into those. I look forward to your project and what you find out.
Comment

Re: Orca Whale Conservation

This topic is very intriguing! I like how your question relates to the human contact with the killer whale, since the human/killer whale relationship shapes the future of this species. I look forward to your future research.

I'm really excited to see more of your project. You should do some research into voluntourism. There's a documentary on it called "volunteers unleashed" as well as a lot of interesting articles about it online.

I think it is good when they learn on their culture because they learn the things concerning them and this help in preventing in extinction of that culture.

The students get to learn different things about the other culture this creates unity among the students and they are no longer judgmental about what the other thinks .The negative stereotypes are broken and the fantasy becomes real.

Re: CULTURE

culture is something we are proud of. every community in Kenya has its own cultures.i think i may help you in the circumcision cultures.visit www.who.int or www.Masai-association.org or www.amazon.com

Let me tell you more about Kenyan practice of circumcision .Other communities like the Luos were not practicing circumcision,they were removing six tooth of the initiate.this ideas of Luos was unique but it was not comforting them especially the men because their privet parts were affected by bacterial diseases.

To me I guess the cultural exchange program are dearly worthwhile as they bring about new experience to the students,and new knowledge about each other.Breaking the stereotypes i guess they do not.

Re: Canadian and Kenyan Social Values

George Gitonga (Alumni) ·
The cultures are different due to different ways of living and ways of doing things,they are also same due to canadian and kenyan people interacting and absorbing the different cultures!
Comment

Re: Canadian and Kenyan Social Values

Joy Evans Wangui (Loise) ·
That is a nice enquiry question.I tend to think that we all have different social values like we here in Kenya we are more based at improving the academic performance of the students therefore not considering the part of nurturing young talents while in Canada students are able to nurture their talents since you guys have like the arts school of which we don't have in Kenya.

Traveling at different places indeed expands our minds and so we need to lean more when we go at different areas.For i wish that the next generation can travel to the other planet like mars so as to know more about other planet.

Re: My plan

Grace Yang (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Sounds like a great project Chelsea. Since you're doing research on cultural exchanges around the world, will your actual project be only between Kenya and Canada or will you expand on that? Obviously, you can't bring students to Canada from around the world, but it would be interesting if you could incorporate other cultures as well.

GREAT WORK you got here Chelsea,its actually very interesting to learn about other cultures it actually builds some ones personality a lot and i say this with experience,when you guys came to kenya and we had some together i learnt a lot of stuff and broadened my knowledge and gave me a new perceptive about you guys so incorporating this in other people would be awesome,i bet it will of so much benefit to lots of people!

Re: Indigenous Youth and Culture

Hi Elinor! I love the idea of your project - it seems to be a very essential group of questions you're exploring. Just one thing though. I understand that as an indigenous youth yourself it must seem that it is important for other indigenous youth to participate in oral history and culture, but I'm concerned that that's making an assumption. I think that before you address why it is important to do that, you should establish that it is important in the first place. Good luck, and I'm really...

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

Wow! Great idea! it never really occurred to me that guys could feel emotions differently. I look forward your project.
Comment

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

Delaney Thank you so much for showing your interest at my inquiry question, it means a lot to me! I am also very exciting to find out what I will discover from this project. As I dig into this topic I find out male and female also learn in very different ways and that heavily effect their behavior and emotions, so I will also add that part to my project and the plan which I will soon post.

This is an awesome idea, one I think definitely needs to be explored! I think it's really interesting how you're looking at it culturally, not just biologically, as many cultures believe different things thus reacting to different events as they occur.
Comment

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

Thank you so much! I totally agree with you Taryn. The reason I pick culture and biology to make the comparison is because I think this two things are the most impotent factor that make up human. I think it will be very interesting to find out how much of the difference is simply just what people label each other as, and how much of it is by biology, which are the thing that us people have no contour over at.

I really like your project so far! When I was in Kenya, I learned that Mount Kenya has a very strong influence on the culture of various tribes in Kenya. It would be really interesting to do more research on the role Mount Kenya plays in the folklore of other tribes as well. i'm also curious as to what the last three clans are that you left out. Best of luck in your research.

Hey Elinor, I love all the questions you have brainstormed! It would be interesting to see how schools connect with all of this. Possibly looking at how schools can encourage indigenous culture? Maybe look at how BC First Nations 12 affects students, and see if there is a positive outcome from having non aboriginal students learning about indigenous cultures and their past. I look forward to seeing what answers you find to your questions!

Re: Ongoing Reflection - Cultural Exchange

Nice work, Anika! You bring up some really interesting points. I really like how you recognize the problems that come with viewing other cultures as a third party standpoint. It's something I've never really considered, but makes a lot of sense to me. One suggestion I have regarding your post is setup. When you put all your stuff in one block of writing, it's pretty tedious to read. In the future it might be worthwhile to consider breaking up your longer posts into a few paragraphs.

Re: Ongoing Reflection - Cultural Exchange

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Anika, for one, I love the way you write. You've made me aware that the information that I have been exposed to through documentaries, novels, or magazines such as Nat Geo should not be accepted as a complete and total representation of the portrayed culture. Like Jess, I was unaware of this before reading your post. Fantastic work!

Re: Broaden your Thinkin'

Eunice Lui (Alumni) ·
This is a really mind-opening thought. I've noticed that the biggest thing about each country and its history is the art that their ancestors leave behind. And because these traditional artifacts and dances, we are able to learn of their ways of living, important events, or even those who have lived. Great opinion!
