The “Saris and Samosas” Approach

  • Visible cultural differences are interesting and doable. We can accept and try out clothes, foods, dances, arts etc.

  • Norms and values are trickier and tend to be prescribed rather than described. We get upset about the wrong distance, handshake, greeting, time orientation etc.

• Core beliefs are left unexamined. We don‟t ask, “What is a husband/wife/child? Who taught me to think this? What is the race/power situation? Who holds the cultural imperative? Am I privileged because I am white/female/straight/tall etc?” 26
