Creating a multicultural community means that we need to know about and appreciate the cultures of others, particularly for what they might uniquely add. An easy first step is to learn about different rituals, traditions, food, holidays, etc. of someone different from yourself. Further learning can come from asking questions about what these traditions or holidays mean in this person's culture. By asking deeper questions, you convey a sense that you are genuinely interested in this person's perspective and lived experience. Thus, the first skill in building a multicultural community is learning through asking.
