Cultural Facts of Nicaragua
Transcript of Cultural Facts of Nicaragua
is Spanish, many citizens still speak the ancient Mayan language spoken by their ancestors. Unlike the religiously diverse U.S.A., Nicaragua has one primary religion: Catholicism. The majority Nicaraguan cities are still fashioned after colonial Catholic cathedrals. Some of these architecturally rich buildings are the original structures erected in colonial times! Although an essentially poor country, Nicaragua is known for it's citizens' appreciation of possessions. Homes are generally small shacks constructed of whatever material found, children usually have one or two toys, and people only have a few outfits. What Nicaraguans are lacking in wealth, they're making up for in pride. Unlike Americans, Nicaraguans don't take their things for granted. Also unlike Americans, Nicaraguans don't enjoy a large variety of cuisines. Their usual diet consists of corn, beans, tortillas, tomatoes, chili, potatoes, steak, and various roots. Although very few ingredients, the meals created are very rich and overall nutritional. Education Under budgeted, inadequate, and not very well advertised, Nicaraguan schools don't provide as good an education to students as American schools. Even though it isn't a law to attend schools, up to 70% of children are enrolled and education is very valuable to Nicaraguans. Performance Arts Americans enjoy a variety of operas, plays, and very elaborate artistic performances. However, Nicaragua's main performing art consists of traditional folklore dances. These masked dances are preformed at festivals, fiestas, and other celebrations. Entertainment Like Americans, Nicaraguans have their own ways of entertainment. Things Nicaraguans do for fun include baseball, soccer, horseback riding, hiking, going to the beach, and spending time with family. About the Country Language Religious Influence Rich in Pride Food
