City data on Lindsorg, Kansas reveals that only 15% of its population is Swedish. Yet, the town is called Little Sweden because it prides itself on its Swedish food, statues, and festivals.

Why would a town of mostly non-Swedish residents promote Swedish culture?

A

As a political statement of allegiance to Sweden.

B

As a tactic used to promote tourism and make money.

C

As a way for the people to show their local culture and history of Swedish migrants through place- making.

D

As a sign of opposition to globalization and popular culture.

E

As a tradition that carries no meaning for most residents.
