Inside there’s the typical tourist items but what intrigues me the most would be the gallery walk. The gallery walk features many images of Native American culture; there's ones of the wool woven blankets, headdresses the men wore, and the inside of the small homes similar to forts called “hogans.” There's also writings that are in the Navajo language that my grandma translates to me. After the end of this unique experience I learn more about my culture, visit family I don't often get to see, and lastly an experience of a
Daily quilts, pieced wholes without a defined pattern had a direct address to women who were considered as Alien due to their endless fashionable desires.

Such doings or activities saw the need to apply some or the needed survival tactics. Crafted wares, tattered clothes, and patchwork coverlet had the basics to
In many places, respect for the heritage of all people is extremely important. Some say that one's own heritage is essential to understand where one is from and who one is from. In many cases, material objects are a gateway to ignite this sense of enlightenment. In the poem "My Mother Pieced Quilts" by Teresa Acosta and the short story "Everyday Use" by Alice Walker, both authors use imagery and figurative language to establish a quilt as a symbol providing an example to ignite respect for one's own heritage and to encourage one to develop their own traditions.
This idea is shown in these text "My Mother Pieced Quilts" and "By Any Other Name." Teresa Acosta shows that culture is a way people look at the world which you can see in her poem, "My Mother Pieced Quilts." She showed how different the cultures are in her family by showing it in a quilt. They passed the quilt around from family member to family member. Teresa Acosta said in her poem, "In the evening you sat at your canvas, our cracked linoleum floor the drawing board
My personal Artifact is a baseball my son and I caught at the Giants game. It is white, round, has red stitches, and is smooth when new, but when we caught it it was beat up and the blue writing on it was smeared. A baseball is small and light in size. It can be thrown at speeds up to 100 MPH, or hit at at speeds higher than 100MPH, so when playing the game or watching you should be paying attention at all times. A baseball is made of a rubber or cork center, wrapped in yarn very tight, covered by white leather with red stitching around the out side, making it a very hard ball.
Regardless of so, the stained and unembellished cloth could no longer finish its own story as my grandmother’s hands became unable to handle the fine needle art. I picked it up knowing that I was holding my Hmong community’s history in my hands but threw it away without acknowledgement of who I was. Without realizing it though, I became the very person to continue embroidering its

We begin this paper by questioning: What Culture is and how is it related to Heritage? Culture is people’s way of life. It is the characteristic of group of people defined by everything they possess such as language, religion, lifestyle, belief, attitude, food, rituals, customs, behavior, etc. Culture is a set of knowledge acquired overtime. Heritage, on the other hand, is the valued objects and qualities such as historic buildings and cultural traditions that have been passed own from previous generations. It could be either tangible or intangible or natural heritage. Thus, culture and heritage have one thing in common i.e. both are inherited from the previous generations. We all are indeed a product of former generations whether we are aware of it or not. Each individual undoubtedly carries many different sorts of heritage which may be in the form of physical material or spiritual values which reflect in their norms and traditions.
Artifact: Captain America: Civil War (2016) Importance of Artifact: This artifact is important because it displays one individual’s courage and integrity to stand for what they believe is right. Captain America has always been a symbol of American rebellion and freedom since his conception in the original comic books. This theme is still alive today in this modern adaptation of his story in the 2016 film when he refuses to sign the Sokovia Accords (peace treaty agreement), a legal document that gives the United Nations control over the Avengers, even if it means fighting his friends. Genre: Superhero science fiction film, thriller (war movie) Similar Artifacts:
Personal Cultural Heritage Item Cultural heritage is what influences the values and fashion choices we adopt (Goddard, 2015). It is influences our family traditions and our family members. Most importantly, cultural heritage influences our zeitgeist or spirit of times that fits into our own history (Goddard, 2015). There are some people that take an interest in understanding their culture and their influences while others do not. The purpose of this assignment is to discuss my family’s cultural heritage.
In Africa, pottery began in 6000 B.C. Throughout history, African ceramics has been not only used for utilitarian purposes but also for spiritual and esthetic purposes. Different regions of Africa were influenced by the ceramics of other cultures. For example, in 75 AD african pottery was influenced by the importation of roman pottery and they actually ended up taking over the pottery business and most pots in Rome were made in Africa. Another example of the influence of another culture's ceramics was in the 600s AD when Africans began to use glass and metal glazes after importing ceramics from China. The potters in Africa were mostly women, however there were a few men. They used various techniques. They would either build things by hand or with a mould. The most common pieces of pottery that they made were water jugs or pots to cook in. Another pot that they made that I found cool had bark woven around the outside which would cool the water through evaporation when it was soaked in water. After building the pot and setting it out to dry, they would cover it in maybe bark or cow dung and fire it on an open fire. They would try to achieve a shiny finish by firing. In the Congo, they sometimes would splatter the pots with dyes after firing to add color to the pot. In addition to pots, they would also make figures such as people out of clay. I thought it was interesting that the skill of pottery is
