Storyboard Text

  • A community or population made up of people who share a common cultural background or race. An example of an Ethnic group is Asian people.
  • A Religious group is a group of people that share a common religion or common beliefs. An example of a religious group is Christians. The difference between a religious group and ethnic group is that you can control your beliefs and religion but you are born into an ethnic group and have no control over it.
  •  Hi I´m an Arabic man. We Arabs speak Arabic. We make up most of the Middle East´s population but have immigrated to other countries such as Germany,The UK, Brazil, France, and Sweden.  Our religion is mostly Muslim with some hints of Christianity.
  • HISTORY The Arabs began in the mid-ninth century B.C. The Arabian Desert is the birthplace of Arab culture because small tribes expanded from here to form the Ethnic group we know today.
  • Hi I´m a Persian man. Most Persians live in Iran but we can also be found in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. We speak Persian and fun fact, it is one of the world´s oldest languages. Our religion is Sunni and Shi´a Islam.
  • HISTORY The Persian Empire was created in 550 B.C. by Cyrus the Great. Cyrus also created Persia by combining two original Iranian tribes.
  • Hi I´m a Kurdish woman. Most of us Kurds live in Iraq, Iran, Armenia, and Syria. We speak a language that´s related to Persian. We mostly believe in Sunni and Shi´a Muslim but also believe in reverence for elders especially woman and hospitality.
