It sounds like you're doing a great job.
If a teacher studies the history, sociology & religion of a country I'm sure
no one would dispute her/him teaching some of that art in the curriculum. I'm
begining to think it's some kind of discrimination thing to say that a wasp
can't teach about African, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, etc art. I will admit
that I haven't heard to much of it ,yet. It's still the knowledge that is
important I'm sure.

Dr Greer at the UofA talks about his experience in teaching African art where
he told a black boy to sit down because he didn't know what he was talking
about. He hadn't been taught about that art, we don't know what we aren't
taught, race color or religion are irrelevant
