The American people express their culture through traditions in food, clothing,
recreation and ceremonies; through the education system and institutions of learning

literary, and performing arts. American culture is rich, complex, and unique.

from all over the world. They are extremely independent, individualistic, and like to
be different from each other. All of groups influenced popular tastes in music,
dress, entertainment, and cuisine. Americans everywhere. The country is strongly
committed to democracy, in which views of the majority prevail, and strives for
equality in law and institutions characteristics such as democracy and equality

comedies, sports starts, and fast food… While America is probably most well known

4. The meanings of the motto E pluribus Unum.
E Pluribus Unum is the United States motto, appearing on the nation’s coins
and paper money, and on many of its public monuments. It is a Latin phrase which is
meant “From many, one”, is a phrase on the Seal of United States, along with Annuit
coeptis and Novus ordo seclorum, and adopted by an Act of Congress in 1782. That
process of creating one society out of many different backgrounds is one of the
biggest stories of the American experience.
First used to unify the 13 British colonies in North America during the
American Revolution (1775-1783), this phrase acquired new meaning when the United
States received wave after way of immigrants from many lands. The goal of E
Pluribus Unum has been closely connected with an ongoing debate. Creating one from
the many, then, has been inseparable from deciding how democratic the nation will
be. Accordingly, a second theme of this set of articles on the U.S is the growth of
democracy in the nation and in its institution and culture. Each of the articles is one
