Why did people evolve to have different cultures?

    There are many reasons. Local geographical factors will have had an influence: agriculture versus hunting and gathering, for instance, or island cultures as opposed to those on the mainland. Even within the same culture, not everyone likes to live the same way; back when the world was less populated, a group who all shared a similar mindset might just break off from their society and start a new way of life. Having different cultures is also a potential way to fit more people into the same place; if you’ve got people who primarily eat, say, wild buffalo and another nearby culture that eats mostly squash, that’s an example of specialization that allows the two groups to coexist without conflict over resources.
