    It is common to enjoy learning about cultures from around the world. Because of this curiosity and desire to celebrate cultures, it is important that we understand the difference between cultural exchange and cultural appropriation. Once we understand the difference, it is much easier to make decisions on how best to celebrate and acknowledge stories, artifacts, customs, and traditions of a culture. Everyone is welcome!
