Rafael Komu is a five year old boy born into a bi-cultural family. His world is bigger than most. Rafael has traveled to both of his home countries, Turkey and Mexico. At his house there is a strong presence of objects and traditions from both of his cultures. The art and decorations are highly linked to his parents home towns, as well as objects that carry the believes and traditions his parents grew up with. The picture with the Turkish tea set and Coffee represent his dad's culture. In Turkey, tea and coffee are must haves in every household. They represent friendship and bonding. The Huichol nativity set is related to the natives in his mom's home town. Huichol natives live in few parts of the country and are heavily known in the Nayarit community. Walking through Rafael's home, it is easy to see that passing down tradition and believes is important to his immigrant parents.
