Part 2

Protecting Culture

In this week’s readings, you learned about how culture is preserved—such as through language and value systems. Now, it is your turn to reveal how your culture is being kept alive in Grenada west indies. How do you rightfully preserve your cultural identity, through food ( national dish is oil down), traditions, language , values, or perhaps in some other aspect?

Furthermore, take a moment to reflect and express how cultural traditions have changed in your region, due to globalization. You can compare yourself(I am a female) to your parents’ or even grandparents’ generation.

The journal entry should be about a page in length.  If applicable, be sure to cite any resources you use to support your learning journal.
