How Cultures Conflict in Native American Vs European Culture

0 Comment

This paper tells that cultures change always and have a relationship with symbols of life dimensions. Symbolic dimensions can be places where we make meanings and enact consistently our identities. Therefore cultural messages from our origin convey what is important to us, who we are and what relationships we have with others. As Nina puts it, cultures conflict in such a way that cultural messages make what people in a cultural group know that the outsiders know not. These cultural messages are like a series of lenses shaping what we do not see as well as what we see, how the group interpret and perceive, and where they draw boundaries. Cultures conflict such that they shape the values and involve the currencies and starting points of every individual group. What is perceived as important by one group may not mean anything to the other group? For example, starting points places natural to start from with group or individual concerns with particularities or big picture. Currencies may be the things that a particular cultural group care about so much and shape and influence their interaction with other cultural groups. Cultures are basically embedded in all manners of conflict since human relationships are the origin of conflicts. Particular cultures affect the way people frame, name, blame or attempt to resolve conflicts. It is a cultural question whether at all there is an existence of a conflict. According to the readings, labeling interactions as conflicts and scrutinizing them to smaller content sections is a Western approach distinctly and obscures other related aspects.
