Culture: Everything, we as people, are.


According to Samovar and Porter (1994), culture refers to the cumulative deposit of knowledge, experience, beliefs, values, attitudes, meanings, hierarchies, religion, notions of time, roles, spatial relations, concepts of the universe, and material objects and possessions acquired by a group of people in the course of generations through individual and group striving. Gudykunst and Kim (1992) see culture as the systems of knowledge shared by a relatively large group of people.
