Tables of Tradition: Culture Expo


Tables of tradition surrounded the quad as students learned and represented unique cultures. Countries such as Ethiopia, The Philippines, Mexico, Spain, and more were displaying posters and material to teach interested Bearcats. Customs, food, and fun filled the atmosphere of PRHS on Thursday, October 27 as a result of the annual Culture Expo.

Being the second year of this celebration, spirits were high for all ethnic groups. Filipino students congregated and made a table to represent the Philippines. At the station, Bearcats had the opportunity to participate in tinikling. Tinikling is when two long sticks are placed parallel and music plays. For the first two beats the sticks tap the ground and on the third beat they come together, with the music going faster progressively. 

Meanwhile, Bearcats resembling Ethiopia and African American communities had tables to spread information and accomplishments from their people. Records of famous musicians such as Drake, Michael Jackson, and Bob Marley were displayed to show how influential and diverse African American artists were. Other important people of Black History were displayed with information about them and their culture.

Another presentation came from the Latino and Mexican community. A booth representing the Mexican state of Jalisco was accompanied by dancers dancing to Mariachi, which was founded in this region. Candy and outfits were used to express other exclusive parts of their culture.

My favorite part of representing my culture through Culture Expo is because there’s not a lot of African American kids on campus. It’s just kind of fun for them to see more and understand that there’s a lot more to black culture than a lot of people think.
