Gulf Coast Culture Tour

What is culture?  Culture is how people in communities live.  Culture involves many things: history, beliefs, religion, ideas, language, food, art, customs, traditions and more.

It is a part of our identity.

Every community in the world has a culture and the Southern 6 counties of MS are no exception.

We hope you enjoy our rich “culture stories” of some of the people and their families who created our diverse community and that you get a better understanding of your culture and appreciate the contributions of all cultures!
