Culture defined:


It defines who we are as a people; keeping alive our past, reflecting our values, articulating our dreams, and fostering pride in who we are. It proclaims our existence and identity to the world. Cultural activity mirrors a culture; it is how a culture perceives and expresses itself, and is perceived, as expressed, by others. It can be defined as the symbolic forms and the everyday practices through which people express and experience meaning.
