Ethnicity and Religion: A Case Study

Ethnicity and Religion: A Case Study | Unit 3 (Cultural Geography) | Scoop.it
In a nation of 230 million people, 700 languages and some 300 ethnicities, ethnic Chinese are one of Indonesia’s historic minorities.

 

Religion and ethnicity are often connected, but not always.  This case study of such a group, the Chinese Muslims of Indonesia, provide an interesting glimpse into the economic, historic and political patterns of these cultural groups that are parts of communal identities.

In this article it talks about the diffrent religions and ethnicity's in middle asia and the diffrent ethnicity's living there. In our class we talk about ethnicity and the diffrent types in the world. We talk about the the diffrences in the world and race. Now we can know about the diffrences in the religion and race.

This relates to our previous chapter because it is talking about a different ethnicity coming into a place where a certain ethnicity already lives. This article shows how the amount of Chinese Muslims there were there. I liked that because it showed that ethnicity blending is not always a bad thing and that we should be more excepting. When we are more understanding the world runs much smoother.

This article relates to my class because its talking about all different types of ethnicity. It talks about how much of a ethnicity is in a certain  location like how much chinese musilms make up a place. This article is interesting because it shows you how many diferent ethnicity are around you. The different cultuer is very cool.

Break Dancing, Phnom Penh-Style

Break Dancing, Phnom Penh-Style | Unit 3 (Cultural Geography) | Scoop.it
A former gang member from Long Beach, California, teaches break dancing to at-risk youth in Cambodia.

 

This video is a great example of cross-cultural interactions in the era of globalization.  Urban youth culture of the United States is spread to Cambodia through a former refugee (with a personally complex political geography).  What geographic themes are evident in this video? How is geography being reshaped and by what forces?

I thought this was a good video because it talks about a person who was probably living in the u.s. all his life and got hooked on the wrong side of the track and now forced to leave the u.s. The good news is he is seeing a country he was probably born in and never saw. he is able to bring with him some American culture such as breakdancing, music, his tattoos his English language. At the same time he is going to learn his culture.

this is a wonderful example of someone giving back to their adoptive [if ancestral] home. this is a good way to keep kids out of trouble while also introducing them to a new culture and style of dance.

Martin Kemp's curator insight, December 17, 2015 4:03 PM

this is great, making the best of a bad situation and working with kids to make sure that they do not make the same mistakes as you did is a great thing. also the examples of cultural diffusion or great as well. everyone knows that there is nothign better for kids growing up than to be a part of after school programs where they can continue to learn different things.
