Diffusion is when a culture spreads one of its traits to another culture. One example of this is how Mcdonalds, an American franchise, has spread all over the world.
When colonists first moved to America, they dominated over the Native Americans and made the Native Americans change their religion to Christianity. This is an example of Assimilation because the more dominant culture in this situation, the colonists, replaced the weaker cultures religion with their own.
The colonists just came in and told us what to do! We cannot do anything about it.
I am making Tex-Mex food. Just like how in other places of the world, use food from America.
Cooking is a very big industry that employs many people world wide, but what some people don't know is how acculturation has been used to make cooking better. All of the different kinds of foods that the chefs make in the kitchen are inspired by other foods in the world. Chefs use different ingredients that were made in other places. For example, Mike here is making a dish that has features and tastes from Mexico and Texas food.
Syncretism is the blending of cultures, one example of this is K-pop music. K-pop music is Pop Music, which is America, but with a Korean spin on it. These two aspects of different cultures combined to make one new idea.
K-pop music is pop music but with aspects of Korean music in it.
