Choose a culture that you believe people have limited knowledge of (this excludes broader examples, like American culture, Hispanic culture, Christian culture, or white culture) and research several components about the group. Remember that the word culture encompasses many identity factors so there is an unlimited number of options on which cultural group to focus on.
You should aim to provide an overview of the group including some of the following: historical context, values of the culture (belief systems, roles etc.), communication practices unique to that group, or highlight the culture’s positionality in their larger society (what privileges the group may have and what problems they may deal with).
Examples (just a few, the possibilities here are endless):
Deaf/Hard of Hearing culture
Native/Indigenous Communities (choose a specific tribe/region)
Immigrants (choose a specific country/region)
Learning Disorders (choose a specific disorder)
Professional Gamers (in comparison to other more traditional athletes)

If you have an idea for a culture to focus on but are not sure, let me know!
