My cultural identification
I identify myself as having a mixture of scottish, irish, australian and unknown heritage. My unknown background stems from my mother being adopted and although we do have some knowledge of her blood relations there are some gaps as to their cultural history. I am a New Zealander and was born in New Zealand. When I joke about how I see myself culturally its when I say that I have the posh Christchurch side of me with my down to earth rougher side from my blood that comes from the West Coast of the south Island. So for me culture is not just about the geography but the behaviour or status that is generalised of people that inhabit these places.
