Ethnicity does involve all those things, and I do question, because my great grandson has dark skin, should we make a point of exposing him to the food, music and customs of Africa? Should we teach him his heritage is from Africa? Or is it okay if we stick with what we know, and to stay with the meaning of living a democracy and the culture of the land of his birth? He is also part native American, and how much of a deal should make of this being his heritage. Should we be sure to take him to Pow Wows and dress in the clothes of the tribe of his great father? Just how do we explain to him who is and what his heritage is?
