Students could choose an Asian celebration that has spread to New Zealand as a result of cultural interaction. Have students investigate the nature of the celebration, values on which it is based, and how it is a response to culture and interaction. Possible examples include Diwali, Eid al-Fitr, or local cultural festivals, for example, the Auckland International Cultural Festival or the Celebration of International Communities at Palmerston North Festival of Cultures 2009.
