    Personal Response
    My family has some norwegian in it, although we don't use as much of that as some. We do eat certain dishes and other customs. For some of our surface culture there is the food we eat, which is Lefsa, we eat a hot meal for breakfast. But some things cannot be seen like how we value manners, and gender roles.
    {images-1.jpg}
    There are some misconceptions, and stereotypes with Norwegians, including eating lutfisk, blond, tall. I would correct this by going and interveiwing norwegians. For some these misconceptions could be true, as for me I'm blond but not tall and i do not like lutfisk.
    Cultural Universals
    Language: Norwegian is "part of the Germanic family of language." There are many dialects but all are so similar, Norwegians can understand each other. There is also Sami, two kinds are spoken here. Officialy used is Bokmal and Nynorsk form. In Bokmal hello is hallo. Normaly people will say hei though.
    Belifs: 95% of norwegians are Christian. Many are members of the church of norway. "Fewer than 20% of norweigan adults attend church more than 5 times a year." In Norway there is religious freedom. Originaly norwegians believed in gods and goddeses.

    Introduction
    Known as a tropical paradise Jamaica has exotic wildlife, beautiful waters and its clear blue skies for most of the year. Even after that being said Jamaica has suffered with its past. Slaves bought to the island by the Spanish and the English between 1513 and 1834 to work for sugar plantation. Though finally slavery was abolished in 1838.People from Asian, Europe, came to the island to work. This describes how a nation of different people, created a rich cultural heritage.

    {HAT40.jpg} This hairstyle is washed regularly but never cut or styled. Dreadlocks originated among the Masai Warriors of eastern Africa.

(Number 6:5) , this is a phrase from the bible. This way of the style is also followed by women of Jamaica.

This is because back in the day the slaves from China, Europe and India brought with them their cooking styles. Sunday lunch is a special family event. The main meal most of the time is roast beef or Chicken, though roast beef is an English influence on Jamaicans. it is served rice and hot potatoes. Rice is also a very important party of Jamaicans diet. The nation dish of Jamaica is Ackee and Saltfish has been eaten by jamaicans forever.

    HOUSEHOLD DECORATIONS
    Ukrainians have distinctive weaving patterns for everyday rugs and clothing. In southeastern portions of Ukraine, decorations and crafts, such as basket weaving, are very similar to those of their Islamic/Middle-Eastern neighbors who share their Islamic beliefs. In the west, Polish foods, household decorations and many types of dress are very similar to the Poles. Polish Easter eggs are often made very similarly to Ukrainians, except that the designs are very different.

    Religious traditions are very important to the Ukrainian culture and these traditions have been brought to other countries through emigration. This includes the colorful cross-stitched clothing and other materials, weaving and Ukrainian Easter eggs – called pysanky - which have designs that are written on to the eggs. They aren't painted by created in a process using beeswax. All of the colors and symbols on the eggs have meaning.

    Instead of having Christmas presents on Christmas day, Ukrainians usually share gifts on the twelveth day of Christmas, January 6th. Christmas day itself is considered a day for religious ceremonies and reflection. Easter is the other most important day on the Ukrainian Christian calendar. People feast on traditional foods, decorate with Ukrainian eggs, cross-stitch and other traditional arts.
    PERSONAL RESPONSE
    Ukraine is a country rich in natural resources like oil, natural gas, coal, granite, and graphite. Almost 45% of the land consists of fertile farming land. Many have called Ukraine the “bread basket of Europe.”
    ...
    {http://web.mac.com/lubap/HTL/Home_files/easter%20card14%20copy.jpg} http://web.mac.com/lubap/HTL/Home_files/easter%20card14%20copy.jpg
    Other countries have tried to overtake Ukraine for centuries because they wanted to control the resources for themselves. Ukraine was a separate nation from the ninth to the thirteenth centuries sometimes called the Kyivan Rus then. Russia has been a constant enemy, taking over the country and taking their natural resources over and over again. From 1917 to 1920, Ukraine was able to be independent from Russia, but even this was followed by a brutal Soviet rule.
    Russian Soviets created two artificial famines (1921-22 and 1932-33) during which over 8 million Ukraines died.
    ...
    During World War II, between the German and Soviet armies, over 7 million more Ukrainians died. Once overtaken by Russia, it become a territory or colony of the Russians in what they called the Union of Soviet Socialistic Republics. The Soviets controlled the media, politics and the economy. They also worked to stop all types of religious and cultural practices that they believed led to nationalistic feelings of the people. Soviets prohibited many cultural practices and symbols because they said their were subversive. Churches were destroyed or turned into other types of buildings. Important cultural icons were almost lost. Even now many people in Ukraine do not speak Ukrainian as their main language.

    With the end of the Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine began the process of trying to become a solid, inclusive country with a representative government again. However, many of the former Soviet officials and upper classes stayed behind and have worked to stop reforms and the establishment of true freedom.
    My father's mother and her family are from the western areas of Ukraine. Many of their family members were killed by the Soviets during the artificial famine – which means that the Soviets refused to give Ukrainians the food they needed to stay alive – even though Ukrainians were growing much of the food used by the Soviets in Russia and elsewhere.
    My grandmother, Maria Moises, lived on a farm with her family. When the Nazis came through Ukraine, she was taken to work on the farms in Germany during World War II. She never knew what happened to the rest of her family, but we assume they were all killed. She lived in work camps in Germany and wasn't treated well, but she survived. After the war, she was left in settlement camps waiting to learn where she might be able to go to live in freedom. For two years she wasn't able to emigrate to Canada or the U.S., so she had finally had to go to Venezuela. My father was born in the settlement camps. They were not nice. His baby brother died of pneumonia in the camps. My Dad has never been able to find out what happened to his father.

    Just as freedom and family are important in Ukraine, it is important in my family. My grandmother died before I could get to know her, so many of her traditions are lost. However, at holidays, we put out our Ukrainian Easter eggs to decorate the house, we have other paintings and pictures in our home and we sometimes have Ukrainian food like pierogis (or vareniki), and holubtsi (cabbage rolls).

    UKRAINIAN INSTITUTIONS
    Because of occupation and control by so many foreign countries, freedom is very important to the government, culture and identity of the people. They deeply respect their unique, traditions. Two traditional Ukrainian national symbols—the trident and blue-and-yellow flag—were first adopted during Ukrainian independence in 1917–1920 and again after the end of Soviet rule in 1991. The trident dates back to the Kyivan Rus and was a symbol used by Prince Volodymyr I. Blue and yellow are important because they signify the blue skies and yellow wheat fields – which honor the natural resources and geography of the area.

    CONTINUING POLITICAL PROBLEMS
    Government is important, but because they have only been free for less than 20 years, they are still working to unite the country and create a solid, democratic country. The man chosen to be Ukraine's third president in election, Viktor Yushchenko, is an example of how badly Ukraine continues to be treated by Russians. He was running for election and promising the people freedom (in what was called the Orange Revolution). He was poisoned with dioxin. He almost died but continued to run for office. One of three suspects (all who lived in Russia at the time of the poisoning) is still in Russia and the Russian government refuses to bring him to Ukraine for court trial.

    UKRAINIAN ART & FAMOUS ARTISTS AND SCHOLARS
    There is a long history of folk tales and stories. There are many leaders in art, literature and other fields. One of the main cultural heroes is writer Taras Shevchenko who lived in the 19th century. His poetry has been read and loved by Ukrainian peoples for over 150 years. He spoke of the beauty of his country and the need for freedom. In one poem, called Testament, he wrote:

    LANGUAGE
    According to Ethnologue, there are 13 living languages spoken in Ukraine today. Ukrainian is the official language. 99% of the people are literate. Other primary languages include: Polish, Huangarian, Rusyn, Romanian, Russian and Greek.

    The language uses a Cyrillic script and includes the following dialects: Northwest Ukrainian, Southwest Ukrainian, East Ukrainian – although the differences between the dialects are considered slight. The language is categorized as being from Indo-European, Slavic and Eastern origin. Under the Soviets, the Russian language was preferred so that everyone spoke the same language. In order to do this, they discriminated against people who didn't speak the language and they would sometimes even jail people who wanted to keep their traditions. After the end of the Soviet regime in 1991, Ukrainians were, again, able to speak and write in Ukrainian freely again.

    Education:
    Nine years of education is compulsory starting from primary level at 6. There are around 26,000 teachers in Cambodia. 93% of children are enrolled in primary school. Adult literacy is 75%. More than 40% of all schools are without water supply & 30% without toilets. Education was traditionally offered by the wats (Buddhist temples) which only provided education for the male population. The 1917 law on education passed by the French colonial government, it introduced the primary & secondary education system. It was modeled like in France. This reached a very small percentage of the population. In 1975, Khmer Rouge abolished all education. In 1979, the new government had to completely reconstruct the entire education system. The education still has many difficulties & low population of participants.

    Most Cambodians dress casually with the exception of going to some formal events. Men wear short sleeved shirts made of light cotton or silk, cotton trousers of light color in order to keep cool. Women wear loose fitting tops & a sarong that is embroidered with gold threading. Men also wear these sarongs. They call it a sampot.
    Food {rice_bowl_lg.jpg}
    {rice_bowl_lg.jpg}

    Rice is the staple diet. Fish is also easily obtainable & also quite important. Only in exceptional circumstances would one eat a meal without rice. Their neighbors Vietnam, Thailand & Laos also share the love for rice. They enjoy foods with sour & hot tastes. They eat different types of meats with their rice, too. A common condiment is fish sauce. Cambodians enjoy drinking tea, in between & often with meals. Coffee is also drunk, usually with condensed milk. Cambodians generally do not drink alcohol.
    Gender Roles {491213786_c1eec0a1e8.jpg}
    {491213786_c1eec0a1e8.jpg}

    Women keep their maiden name after marriage, stating that she will not be losing her identity. Women generally "wear the pants" in a marriage. They bring up the children, run the home & take care of the family budget. The family riches, usually being the woman's jewelry, are also in the personal care of the lady.
