What is culture?
Culture is when you speak a different language. It makes countries special. In Cook Island culture we eat raw fish, puka puka which is a purple fruit and crab.
Different countries have different cultures. In Japanese culture the old people wear a kimono, put flowers in a vase and drink tea.
