OCHS Multicultural Night Preview

By: Thrisha Kumar

Are you looking for an event that may broaden your perspective about others? How about an event with music, dance, and hands-on activities like Carrom Board or Henna Art?  Then the Oak Creek Cultural Night is for you! This event – organized by Oak Creek High School Multicultural Club – will be held on April 28th from 6:00 – 7:30pm in the Ninth Grade Center cafeteria.  Students, family, friends, and community members are all welcome to attend.

There will be a variety of ethnic dishes available to try, like Murukku (a savory, crunchy snack originating from Southern India), Burek (a Balkan pastry made of a thin flaky dough such as filo with a variety of fillings), and Jamaican Jerk Rolls to name just a few. There will also be cultural dance performances by  Al-Ghurba (Arab/Palestinian folklore), Syrenka Polish Dance Ensemble, Marquette Radiance, and Bharatanatyam (Indian classical dance from the region of Tamil Nadu).

Henna tattoos will be available for visitors, as well as origami and spring roll demonstrations, and a community art project. Students from OCHS Multicultural Club have been working on informational displays about the cultures of China, Philippines, Thai Kickboxing, Albania, India, and more. This is an excellent event to learn more about different cultures and people, and the Multicultural club hopes for a large turnout.  If you have any questions about the event, contact Ms. Korban or Mr. Carreon.
