to come from “religious” people. Is there a way to change that culture? Artistic- In Stella’s community of Native American people, the elders are highly revered. We found that out fairly early on in our time living there and so adapted to that culture as quickly as we could. “Every society develops a system of aesthetic standards that gets manifested in everything from decorative art, music, and dance to the architecture and planning of buildings and communities.” While many of the people we worked with were Christians, 4 there were still quite of few of them who held on to the traditional parts of their culture, such as pow-wow’s, sweat lodges, dancing, and drumming. We never wanted to interfere with what they were doing, but tried to point them to Jesus. Since this is Stella’s culture, while I would want to respect it, I would still want to show her a different Way. While not embracing that part of the culture, there is still a way to respect her culture. Will she participate in pow-wow’s and other events in their culture? Probably, yes, but I can still point her towards truth. Cultural Value Orientations Seven cultural values that I would like to highlight in this next section are individualism vs. collectivism, short term vs. long term, direct vs. indirect, being vs. doing, universalism vs. particularism, neutral vs. affective, and monochronic vs. polychronic. Individualism vs. collectivism- “Individualism versus collectivism is, at its core, a difference in identity.

more of a collectivist culture. She is very loyal to her family and few friends that she has, even if they influence her the wrong way. For me to try to tell her what to do or how to act, as someone who is not a close friend of hers, would probably not turn out very well initially. I would need to build a relationship with her first. Short term vs. long term- “Cultures that expect and demand results in the very near future are short-term-oriented cultures; those that are more focused on the long-term payoff are called long-term-oriented cultures. “ In Stella’s culture, it is more short term oriented. As I 6 was reading through this section, I had to think of, not just Stella, but the culture of the Native American’s in Northwestern, Ontario in general. In our experience, there is not a lot of thinking ahead. If you enjoy something right now, then do it. You should not worry about the consequences. To a certain extent, that is living presently, which is good. But for Stella, it has

    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.
