    That`s a good article ,Karen. Thanks. Working in the Southwest with so many different Native Americans, I have became very interested in this. Some tribes who live in the same region, have completely different views. And with a growing Latino population, have discovered that they also differ, depending on what part of Latino countrys they come from.

    Thanks Karen for sharing this wonderful, educational article.

    Working for a company that is worldwide, I have had exposure to diversities in the workplace. This article will become part of my school folder as I move into a new career, I will need to have the same diversity awareness with those under going care particularly in death.

    Thanks again for thinking of us,

    Thanks for sharing, I'm fascinated by the various issues raised by cultural competency and the not-always-so-smooth intersections of different cultural, generation, etc values.

    I loved how the health care team in that article worked with the family to find compromises and meet everyone's needs, to an extent.
