Culture: A combination of symbolic and material aspects that a society share. The arts, beliefs,
customs, intuitions, and other products of human work and thought considered as a unit in regard with a specific group or society. Example of a culture: Native American culture, their beliefs are similar to mine when it comes to appreciating nature and the animals around us. They believe that certain animals are connected to a certain God or are a God. These animals are symbolic to them as well as sacred. I believe in something similar, in the sense that mother nature as a whole is God, that Nature is God. This belief helps of the Native American’s and my own help me value and appreciate every living soul whether big or small.
