The purpose of this article is to address the importance of authentic cultures education in the primary years. With the rapid globalisation that has taken place over the past century, there has emerged a great need for individuals to participate as active global citizens. It is within the school context that these skills, values and attitudes are fundamentally developed. This paper seeks to provide practical ways for educators to achieve this kind of relevant and effective intercultural education in the classroom.
