‘BaFa BaFa’ Cultural Simulation Exercise
Date/Time: Aug. 6, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Room 10-12 and 16-18, Swanson Hall
BaFa BaFa is a cultural simulation game that teaches participants a great deal about cultural differences, assumptions, and misunderstandings. The overall purpose of the game is to increase cultural awareness and sensitivity among participants, to improve their ability to work with and relate to members from cultures that differ from their own. Participants are divided into two groups, each adopting a previously unknown culture. When members from the differing cultures visit each other’s group, observations are made and conclusions discussed. This activity increases cultural awareness and sensitivity among participants, and assists employees, students, and professionals from all areas in working with diverse populations.
If you’re interested in having a departmental or joint departmental ‘BaFa BaFa’ workshop, contact Keith Malaterre, American Indian Students Services by phone at 777-4292 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Presenters: American Indian Student Services staff.
