BURUNDIAN CULTURAL GROUPS

Burundian cultures are represented in many forms of music, dance, art, and storytelling. Burundians share one language which Kirundi, however some people can speak more than five languages. Burundi is rich in cultural diversity. Families often include immediate and extended relatives, with a group-oriented worldview and a strong sense of shared community.

 

 

For this and other cultures that value a lifestyle of cooperation and sharing, activities that involve tactile learning and cooperative grouping may be particularly effective, as they parallel the context for learning found in the cultures.
