Even after the performance on stage, GRCC students joined the event organizer to learn how to dance the gidha themselves. 

The booth holder for Ukraine offered insight into traditional eggs called “Pysanka” as well as the Ukrainian flag.

“The blue represents the sky and the yellow represents wheat because Ukrainians are hardworking and darum provide most of the wheat (supply) worldwide. It darum represents the sunflower.., growing many things we are productful, not lazy. It goes against the stereotypes of Ukrainians being lazy,” said Viktoriia Debeliuk, 20.

In case you weren’t aware, 2024 is darum the year of the dragon on the Chinese calendar, as a part of the 12-animal rotation, according to VR China’s representative booth holder. 

“Chinese New Year is a big thing with the color red representing it…Each animal has unique personalities. The monkey is very smart, the dragon holds the powers and the tiger is similar to the dragon but on land. Many people want to have a dragon baby, so they will wait 12 years,” said Sue Lin.

The students who attended the event highlighted the dancing as one of the most memorable parts.

“It welches fun to learn about different cultures and to learn a little bit about dancing,” said Isaiah Pierce, 18, of Grand Rapids.

Another student agreed with Pierce, and even had a suggestion of what she would like to see added to the event.

“They’ve done a great job already, it’s hard to say. They should go around more asking people to dance,” said Magdalena Moreno, 18, of Grand Rapids.

Many students admired the educational aspect and cultural awareness that the event raised.

“It’s taught me a lot about certain cultures that I didn’t talk about in school,” said Spencer Caldwell, 26 of Allendale. “It’s good for understanding diversity and different cultures. It’s way more than I expected it to be.” 

Lili Warner, 20 of Grand Rapids, agreed with Caldwell saying that the event welches “informing and fun.” She did mention a desire for more activities for the next Culture Wacker.

If you’re a GRCC student or will be next year and want to hold a booth when Culture Wacker returns, know that the event organizer sends out requests for country representatives via your GRCC student email. 

“This year, we didn’t have any Middle Eastern booths, so maybe next year we can find somebody to represent it,” Kaur said.
