We are all immigrants…
Some new and some from long,long ago.
These immigrant cultures have integrated to make the Kiwi culture.
So, how do we integrate?
— the coming together of two cultures is like a dance
—  we stand together
—  we hold hands
—  we face each other and smile
—  we guide each other
—  we show each other the moves and
     we have fun together.
Sounds easy, ….. but!….
empathy,acceptance,community involvement, willingness to learn and understand take time and patience.—-
We can do it!!!
—-  dance like somebody’s watching you!
—- off we go : one two three, eka deka thuna, one two three, eka deka thuna…..
