Cultural acquisition takes place through enculturation and acculturation. Enculturation is the process of learning your own culture which begins at birth. The cultural norms that a person learns through the enculturation process determine his or her behavioral patterns and perceptions. These practices dictate how we relate and function not only in our culture but also how we relate to and engage other cultures. Acculturation is the process of learning about other cultures that are not the cultures that most influenced our formative years. This is a process that can take place many times throughout the life of an individual as we engage people from other cultures in our own communities and in other locations. An individual’s beliefs and practices may be challenged or encouraged as a result of the interactions with other cultures.
