I am not sure that I knew culture or what it meant when I was little. I don't know if I could articulate what I experienced or participated in. Later in life I understood those precious moments to be cultural belonging to family and community but also to various cultural activities, like the little eagle program or dancing in an Indigenous dance troupe. These people, events, and activities are my culture and they truly bring me joy.
What is your definition of culture? What does culture mean to you?
