Workshop Description

Is it okay for sports teams to use Native tribal names? Should non-Chinese people be getting tattoos of Chinese characters?  In this workshop we will explore cultural appropriation versus appreciation. The workshop will give an introduction to both definitions, and the differences. The workshop will also provide some points as to how one is appreciating culture and how can someone appropriate. By the end of the workshop, student will be able to understand that an inanimate object can have a large impact to one’s identity, as well as the importance of reflection before action.
