Last week an "artednetter" considered Daun's "cultural symbol" project and
wondered how to involve a student who is bi-cultural. You're right, none of
us live in just one culture.

It's not just a matter of ethnicity. We all live in "multi"cultures, and
most of these groups use visual symbols to express their identities. In
CELEBRATING PLURALISM (p.67) I use a great quote from Stuhr,
Petrovich-Mwaniki, and Wasson: "A student may be five years old, female,
Chinese (Taiwanese), hearing impaired, wealthy, and Buddhist." "Curriculum
Guidelines for the Multicultural Classroom," Art Education (45)1, 1992. p.18
