I am writing a description of where I come from. I will be describing the ethnicity/culture of my family,When my family immigrated to NZ and why,my families home language/religion/beliefs/traditions/celebrations and special traditions and possessions that are important to my family.
The ethnic background of my family is Indian. My parents and grandparents immigrated to New Zealand in 1996. They came because they found New Zealand to be a beautiful,ideal country and India is really populated. An Indian tradition is that in an Indian wedding one of the events is a henna party. Henna is a paste which is applied on the bride’s hands and feet. In Indian culture it is said that the deeper the colour, the stronger the love the groom has for the bride. I speak Hindi at home and and my family celebrates traditional Indian festivals like Diwali and Holi. Because my family migrated to New Zealand, they couldn’t bring everything along but we have photos of our great aunts and uncles.
Every year my family goes to India to visit relatives. I really like going to India because I meet my relatives. Visiting my relatives in India has affected me because I learn about Indian culture and listen to traditional Indian stories.
In the future I will tell traditional Indian stories to my children and I hope that the stories will pass through my family’s generations.
My Reflection- I think that I am Extended Abstract because I predicted my family’s future.
