Whale Rider  




Cultural capital invests a community with a sense of value. Including, inside the classroom, the ways students act, speak, and behave in their own homes and communities provides students with a sense that their lives, their communities matter. In this particular scene it is possible the traditional performance of the students result in better rhythm but only because the students find the motions, dress, and song to be familiar elements from their community.
