Consider your own life and daily routine:

-
-In what ways are these actions indicative of your/our culture?
-“What do you wear?”

-What about other aspects of your everyday life?
These cultural attributes vary based on: religious beliefs, language spoken, ethnic/ancestral origin, age,
gender AND individual personality
-Dominance of popular culture in our society (Such as jeans, sweater)
-Consider: Having someone from Papa New Guinea in our culture
-Would they be familiar with your social norms and expression of culture?
-Would they be MORE or LESS familiar with your culture than you are with theirs?
-Consider: Having someone from a university in Tokyo or England
-Would they be more or less familiar with your cultural practices?
