This is my first post on this subject and I admit to not reading all of
the posts since time is a factor and this topic has not been germane to
my area of interest-but here goes..

WHy not organize a day/week dedicated to multicultural arts and ask
parents from these different ethnic backgrounds to do a little
"homework" and come in to present some arts and crafts that relate to
their heritage? (My kids always relish bringing home homework for Mom!
Give points/tickets/ whatever to those kids who get their parents to
participate) If this does not work for you why not ask the kids to
bring in something they have from home that represents an art or craft
from their ethnic background.
The more you can involve the parents in the matter of multicultural
learning, you will find less resistance from those who are inclined to
do so.
