Dowry or “mahari” is then paid and the ceremony takes place. Some of these traditions ve started to decay in the new era. Sometimes its cheaper for the bride and groom to elope. Interviews and dialogues participation. Dialogue Reaction and cultural anlysis from the groups experiences Each member of our group was anxious to know the personal identities and where the Pokomos fit as monolithic communities. From the dialogues with the communities, the group realised that the pokomos were a conglomeration of other communities as well not to metion, the diverse customs. Occupationally, pokomo is predominantly oriented business wise while others are service workers, proffessionals and agricultulists ( Prins, A. H. J. ,1956). .

The Pokomo’s community model of social orders maintenance not the only the only cultural scheme. This model, from out dialogue with the community shows that these traditional models represents kinship nature and the community relations. Behavioral norms arising from dialogue The group dialogues with the community discovered the communities norms in relation to behaviour, relationships and responsibilities. Stragers in the Pokomo communities are known as “Mwa” which means “ not recognized”. This aspect is handeled very carefully by both communities from a shematic belief point of view.Therefore, this is simply a method used by the communites to separate individual members in order to protect future genrations ( Werner, Alice ,Dec 1983).. The communities within traditional Pokomo setting, and other adjacent communities other societies, share similar traditional beliefs and values. However, the modern economy has forced the tribes or communites to more from the rural setting to urban settings. Migration to urban settings has made the communities to totaly lose and forget their unique cultures. As a result, urbarn Pokomo’s neighborhoods have really changed, their interests have completely expanded and shifted. This cultural and social shifting maps the revolutionized traditional community senses into homogeneity practice. Modern cultures have also embodied the genealogies which are quite necessary in constituting of the requirements. Additionally, this shift has caused introduction of embodied modern genealogies which do not include or in any way imply to moral beliefs or cultural and practices sharing. Social cultural mobility reveals categorial separations between somatic - socio and psycho-intellectuals genealogies. it outlines characteristics constitution and idea changes in the community ( Prins, A. H. J. ,1956). . The communites constitutional idea changes have existed since man existed. The original cultures have shifted due to transformation in academic systems, modern atitudes and transformed expressions. old communy practices have enabled transformation into cultural and social constituencies across cultures and nations. This has resulted to introduction of older liberal and independetnt democracies.This is both immigrant and indigenous alliances.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
