Nonmaterial culture/ pg.36 is a group 's way of thinking and doing. In the video most of the families are thinking the same things, which is to find work and be able to help provide and support the family. All of the children are concerned with the parents ' health because of the tides labor that they all endure.The one girl talks bout how when her mother got sick it was a very hard on the whole family because the responsibilities of the mom were distributed throughout the rest of family and it was hard for all of them to work through their normal activities and care for their mom. Also, the one’s dad talks about how he doesn’t think that he can work in the fields anymore due to his old age and the work getting too hard. This makes the children want to work harder and worry about money because he is their primary source of income and the support that they receive. A lot of the times during work when they are out there they will be forced to skip a meal, but they do not usually complain they just keep working in order to help out.

The one subject in the video, Victor, stated “I don’t think money brings happiness.” This is a very example of just how he is going about working in order to be able to have his family all together because they are what truly makes each other happy.
