Cultural Values and Silence

This summer I had an amazing experience of interacting with people from all parts of the world. I used to friendly and lovingly tease one of my friends about her silence. She is Native American and she shared with me that silence is an important part of their cultural values (for her specific nation) and so is listening. I was amazed and wanted to learn more...all in all the point of me sharing this is that we should not shy away from learning about other peoples' cultural values.
