It is not supposed to be an instrument of the great cultural divide as we struggle socially with finding the correct identity of a people using the very thing which makes them different. It is a method through which we can help immigrants keep in touch with their ancestral roots as they struggle to make a new life in a world far removed from what they grew up in. Multiculturalism in in its very essence, not a bad tradition for our modern day society to have provided that it is truly used to truly celebrate the uniqueness of a culture in such a way that also shows how they have successfully integrated into the original culture of their new motherland as well. Perhaps the most politically correct definition of multiculturalism is as follows: ... "multiculturalism" means policies and practices that recognise and respond to the ethnic diversity... (Government of South Australia, “What is Multicultural SA?”) There are many ways that multiculturalism can be defined. However, the essense of the word remains the same. It is a celebration of the acceptance of a culture into the mainstream of daily life in a migrant's country.The importance of celebrating multiculturalism lies in the fact that our world is currently caught up in a series of international discords. Most of which exist within nations that have multiple cultural sources located within.
