Different Cultures Around The World
The United States Of America
Today Australia has a population of nearly 23 million people.

Many people that have come to Australia have been because of family commitment and those that have came are from the Asia- Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa.
South America
South America is made up of Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Bolivia, etc..
The culture of the United States is primarily Western, but is influenced by Native American, African, Asian, Polynesian, and Latin American cultures. A strand of what may be described as American culture started its formation over 10,000 years ago with the migration of Paleo-Indians from Asia, as well as from Oceania and Europe, into the region that is today the continental United States. The United States of America has its own unique social and cultural characteristics such as dialect, music, arts, social habits, cuisine, and folklore. The United States of America is an ethnically and racially diverse country as a result of large-scale migration from many ethnically and racially different countries throughout its history as well as differing birth and death rates among natives, settlers, and immigrants.
South America culture is the combination of almost the half of the culture of this world. This continent has its own culture that was fostered by the native people who were the original part and inhabitant of this great continent.
This culture had its own tradition and heritages. Later the mainstream culture was influenced by the other cultures. Among these other cultures there were the European culture, the African culture and recently the modern culture that has contribution mostly from the North America and also from other parts of the world.

The Massai People of South Africa

The Maasai are pastoralists and warriors. Self-sufficient and proud, the Maasai are now struggling to maintain their traditions. Their grazing lands are being parceled off and much of it is now protected National Park land.
Tribal Cultures
Among native black South Africans, there are many different ethnic groups and nine officially-recognized local languages.

The Zulu and Xhosa speakers are the two largest groups – accounting for nearly 40% of the population – with Pedi, Sotho, Tswana, Tsonga, Swati/Swazi, Venda and Ndebele speakers making up the rest.

The various tribal cultures have rich oral traditions. Stories, poems and epics were learned by heart and recited out loud. Slowly, these stories are working their way into written literature.

Russian culture encompasses art, food, traditions, literature, attitudes and more. The culture of Russia is both a point of pride for Russians themselves and a major draw for travelers who plan trips to Russia.

Russian is a Slavic language spoken primarily in the Russian Federation. It is also the largest native language in Europe.
Kangaroos are one of Australia's most iconic animals. There are over 60 different species of kangaroos in Australia.
