Cultural identity is the feeling or identity of belonging to a group or a nation. It is the part and parcel of a person's self-perception and self-conception and it is also related to nationality, generation, religion, social class, ethnicity, locality or any kind of social group that has its own distinct culture. In the way, cultural identity is both characteristic of individually but also of the culturally identical group of the members sharing the same cultural identity.
Various modern social theories and cultural studies have investigated cultural identity. Cultural and Ethnic identity become central to a person's identity, how they relate to the world, and how they see themselves. The cultural identifiers may be the result of various conditions including: gender, location, race, nationality, history, language, sexuality, religious beliefs, ethnicity, aesthetics, and even food.
Cultural identity may be defined by the social network of the people imitating and following the social norms as presented by the media. It is necessarily representing an individual's interaction within a certain group.
Nation is the largest factor of the cultural complexity, as it constructs the foundation for individual's identity but it may contrast with one's cultural reality. Cultural identity is influenced by different factors such as: ones religion, ancestry, skin colour, language, class, education, profession, skill, family and political attitudes. These factors are contributing to the development of one's identity.
Cultural identity is very important for us. It makes a nation different from another nation. It bears the culture of a nation. We can think of a nation through it. So, cultural identity is very important all of us.
