Created by Dr. Kris Acheson-Clair, CILMAR, Purdue University.

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Articulate cultural self-awareness of local laws, customs, and the history that has shaped them. 2. Identify cultural differences in peoples’ relationships to land. 3. Discuss conflicts that could arise when newcomers to a community do not share local values and norms when it comes to land use.
