4 What is Culture? Culture represents the “normative system” in a social community for how to interpret events and how to respond to them. Not all individuals in a cultural community necessarily think, feel and act according to the normative system. Preference within a community defines at the group level the identified cultural patterns – which structure interaction within the community.

Reframe: The roots of intergenerational conflict are grounded in culture; a framework of five values. Reconcilation: We shared stories of how we already bridge these cultures, and we created options and possibilities for further reconciliation.
