Sam writes this about the school visit "this is my favorite picture because it shows that these people truly care about their culture and are trying to preserve their history. The man told us what every dance meant to their people, one was when the boys acted like bulls.They don't want to forget their past, their old customs. When a country no longer remembers its history, whether the good or bad, they forget what all their ancestors did, the old customs they once had,they are less appreciative of what their ancestors did to give them the life they have now. Like in America a lot of us forget, therefore become ungrateful and self- serving. By teaching these young kids those dances, they preserve their history and won't forget as much or at such a rapid pace."
