In the book, Nation Building, author Kwame Agyei Akoto defines culture.
Culture is the sum-total of a people's evolving historical and contemporary experience, their values, beliefs and actions consisting of behavior patterns, symbols, and institutions unique to a people, that distinguishes them from another people.
Culture is a System of Thought
It can be said that culture, is an explicit and implicit system of thought and behavior based on certain metaphoric, scientific, mythological, theosophical and ideological assumptions, that defines and motivates a people to fashion reality in their own interest, from their cultural common sense.

Cultural Influence of Environment
How a people think, talk, eat, walk, play, dress, love, hate, and fight are a consequence of their cultural orientation.
Because humans are not born pre-wired and what we learn comes primarily from our environment there are few actions, initiated (individual or group) outside of a cultural influence.
