In the activity book, we try not to generalize. With the profiles based largely on what was shared by individuals, the book content explores culture through the lens of one person’s self-identified story and values. In the “Culture Snapshot” featured in this guide, we offer brief overviews of the history of the specific culture’s origin in Minnesota, as well as important cultural mindsets, and state population statistics that could be beneficial to share with students. Where possible, the snapshots were based off research from primary sources directly from that culture. In other cases, we consulted government websites, the Minnesota Historical Society, and heavily relied on information gathered in the book, They Chose Minnesota edited by June Drenning Holmquist, about different immigration stories. It is important to note where information comes from as resources can often represent the internal bias of the authors or institutions they are published by.
