Culture and Spiritual Practice ppt Presentation
1. Tradition and history:
Mexican-Americans are the cultural group that I chose. This population, as Mexicans and Americans, has faced a number of difficulties throughout history. In the late 19th century many Mexicans left their homelands in Mexico because of political turmoil or economic hardships. This forced them to migrate northwards, into the United States.
Some members may have strong religious beliefs such as Catholicism, while others might adhere to ancient Indigenous customs. In addition, family values are emphasized in all aspects of life.
2. Socialization practices:
Socialization occurs within the Mexican American community through extended family relationships, which reinforces core values and provides support when times are difficult. Parents encourage their children to take advantage of higher education opportunities in order for them to achieve a superior quality of life compared with previous generations.
This process starts at home where children learn important lessons from their parents such as respect for authority or responsibility towards one’s self and others – instilling these principles early on helps ensure that individuals will be able to live up to expectations even when faced with adversity.
3. What is the impact of acculturation?
As members of this culture begin immigrating further into the United States it is becoming increasingly common for them to face issues related acculturation – meaning having difficulty adjusting one’s culture/beliefs with those found in new surroundings without completely abandoning their roots.
As a result, communication between families can be difficult because younger generations are more used to using English than Spanish. Additionally, financial pressures associated with immigration status may prevent some individuals from achieving certain goals such as obtaining higher education or obtaining employment in specific industries leading them down alternate paths than originally planned – all things considered it becomes evident that proper guidance and support are essential if we hope to ease this transitionary period for newcomers moving forward
