Multicultural Week &

International Taste of Enatai

 

      

Multicultural Week at Enatai Elementary is the week-long exploration of Enatai's cultural heritage by its students.  It culminates in a night time school event inviting the Enatai staff, students, and families to Multicultural Family Night, the International Taste of Enatai!   This FREE Event celebrates the diversity of our community and focuses on Enatai families sharing their culture through food and activities.  As a special highlight, our Fashion Show features children modeling native dress from their favorite country on the Enatai Stage.  We welcome everyone to attend and to contribute! 

 

How to Participate

1) Become Part of the Multicultural Committee.  Because of the variety of activities included into our event, a Committee is needed to run it successfully.  Members include Decorating Lead, Entertainment Lead, Fashion Show Lead, Food Hall Organizer, and Activity Hall Organizer.  We welcome new ideas and planners!

2) Organize volunteers as a Country Lead.  Country Leads organize volunteers from a single Country or culture.  A Country Lead might coordinate a large group of volunteers or be the only representative of their culture.

3) Share your culture with Enatai STUDENTS during Multicultural Week. Multicultural Week allows you to share your heritage directly with the students in special activities during school.  Crafts, games, and entertainment workshops for the students and even school wide assemblies are welcome!

4) Share your culture with Enatai FAMILIES during the International Taste of Enatai.  On International Taste of Enatai Family Night many volunteers are needed to bring regional food and show traditional crafts/games/activities to the attending families.  The Fashion Show on the night of the International Taste of Enatai is a chance for your student and family members to proudly wear the national dress of their favorite country on stage! 

5) Perform at International Taste of Enatai or during Multicultural Week  A big part of a culture is in its expression in music and dance, or unique rituals and traditions.  Students, family and friends may share their cultural traditions by way of live cultural performance!  We have an emphasis on traditional arts that display a style and technique passed on from generation to generation that is unique to your country.  Examples include indigenous instruments, song, dance, or culturally important ritual (like the haka), or a martial art like Karate.
