Co-Culture

Bounded Culture (co-culture) can be thought of as the “minority” of a community–people who live in one culture, but also practice another culture of their own.  An example of co-culture would be the Hmong here, we live in American culture but we also have our own customs and beliefs.  China town, Little Italy, etc. are results of co-culture here in America too.  My understanding of Co-Culture is that it’s the culture your family has, where as dominant culture is the culture of the area/place you live in.
