From Discovery Education:

To a certain degree, people living in any culture tend to be “culture bound.” They think that their way of life is superior to other cultures. They believe that their culture is the best and all other cultures are inferior.

When studying other cultures, it is important to guard against being ethnocentric.
Ethnocentrism is the tendency of persons to judge other cultures according to their own cultural standards. People studying other cultures may tend to judge others as inferior if they are not just like them. They may conclude that other cultures are not as “good” as their own. Differences between cultures emerge as people ask such questions as: How are women treated in other cultures? What religious beliefs are held sacred? What foods are eaten? How do people dress? How do they communicate? What forms of education exist in other cultures?

It is important to be objective when studying other cultures. Admittedly, this is not easy. It will become easier if you try to focus your study by asking good questions. Why do people behave as they do? Why do they value what they value? Why do they believe what they do? To what forces of nature and environment have they had to adapt? What sort of historical events have shaped the lives of members of other cultures? By asking and answering questions such as these, you will avoid judging members of other cultures and imposing the standards of your own culture on them.

An interesting thing happens when two cultures come into contact with each other. They tend to borrow from each other.

ANSWER: What was borrowed from the cultures of the world to create the NORTH AMERICA we have today. Broaden your ideas and research to America as well.
