I also enjoyed reading about the story behind this blog. Here’s another great food blog from a Palestinian-American woman.

Supplementary Activities & Videos to Learn About Palestine

Here are a few activities and videos to learn about Palestine from Palestinians. The purpose of this is NOT to explain the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but rather to hear from those with Palestinian heritage about their own culture, food, language, and more. I encourage you to also seek out many sources as you choose to learn about the history and challenges in the region.

Traditional Palestinian Ataaba Music

“Traditional Palestinian songs have no set lyrics but rather a set rhythm. Ataaba is the most popular type of song in Palestine. It is often sung by farmers, workers, and shepherds as a work song. However, weddings are the main environment for the songs.” (Source)
