How do people express their culture/traditions?
How does the culture and heritage of a country influence its people?
By tattooing, and telling stories about their culture. They do art including things about their heritage.

Final Thoughts:

People express their feeling by Talking about their tattoos And it goes behind everything that People learn.  

The legends they tell, affect us because we read them and begin to think differently. Maori is a different culture and they do stuff that's different to us which makes us want to be them.

Final Thoughts:

Lots of people have different cultures And people enjoy that there's stuff like fire dancing and fire walking and so on.  
How do cultures use art to show who they are?
How has technology changed how people record their stories?
Tattoos that tell stories but are more permanent than by just words. dances also tell stories.

Final Thoughts:

People with Culture experience different things to other people,Lots of people would have tattoos and more.  
Lots of people write stories on laptops instead of writing by hand it is more efficient.

Final Thoughts:

Technology Has changed everyone's
lives like book writers and authors.

What do cultures/people use art for?
What would I like to leave as ‘My Legacy’ How would I like to leave it?
Cultures/People use art for explaining their culture and what they do for a living.
