The table was once meant for the creation of clothing to wear and repair those which had torn, but it has since been retired and re-purposed into a gathering between thought and text.
The Lakota tribe are indigenous to the Great Plains of North America. What interests me the most about them is there artwork. Women of the Lakota tribe are best known for their quill and beadwork.

When we talk about tyranny, we often thing about corrupt governments, dictators, and unfair ruling, but there is a much more subtle form of tyranny that we have experienced our whole lives and has bearing in almost every aspect of our lives. Although this silent tyrant might sound inoffensive, I promise you that it is not. I am talking about what we often talk about as gender roles or norms. Gender roles made sense 100 years ago.

As I walked around the cultural booth today, there are many things that grab my attention. Any and every one would look at the way we carry ourselves with the different cultures that could be found here in Belize such as the: Mayas, Mestizos, Creole, Mennonites, Garifuna, East Indian, and Chinese. The clothes they wore, the food they have displayed the music and dance that were performed which have realized that it still exists in today societies.
