Transcript of Cultural Humility
Understanding & Respecting Other Cultures
"Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts."
Culture comes from a long history of people and can changes constantly. We do not have the same cultural characteristics as we did when the settlers arrived, nor the 1920's.
Many aspects oulture define us as a society, although some can be perpetuated stereotypes that may not fit everyone in that cultural group.

Cultural Humility vs. Competence
"Cultural humility incorporates a consistent commitment to learning and reflection, but also an understanding of power dynamics and one’s own role in society. It is based on the idea of mutually beneficial relationships rather than one person educating or aiding another in attempt to minimize the power imbalances in client-professional relationships. There are three main components to cultural humility: lifelong commitment to self-evaluation and self-critique, fix power imbalances, and develop partnerships with people and groups who advocate for others" -Wikipedia
"an innate right to be valued, respected, and to receive ethical treatment" - Wikipedia
