Definition:
The definition of culture has long provoked debate. The earliest and most quoted definition is the one formulated in 1871 by Edward Burnett Tylor:
Culture or Civilisation, taken in its wide ethnographic sense, is that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom, and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society.
Ethnicity; refers to the identification of a group based on a perceived cultural distinctiveness that makes the group into a people.This distinctiveness is believed to be expressed in language, music,values, art, styles, literature, family life, religion, ritual, food,naming, public life, and material culture.
