From our own ethnocentric perspective, other cultures may appear strange or different. But to an outsider, so does ours. From a cultural relativist perspective, different ways of doing things are simply different.

Using the concept of cultural relativism as a foundation, consider the following. What are aspects of your culture that you can identify in the context of what we are reading this week? Once you identify a culture that represents you, you will submit a written analysis that describes your culture. This assignment will be two pages in length (not including your cultural example), follow APA standards, and will include a link to a video, image, or another form of media that represents your cultural identity. For examples of cultural identity, see page 49 in the textbook for additional guidance
