The United Arab Emirates (UAE) was not always the global epicenter of the Middle East. Culture is a lifestyle based on values, norms, behaviors, and beliefs of a region. Before it became a country, it was seven different regions next to Saudi Arabia and Oman. Its culture provided a Bedouin lifestyle and one focused upon the region. As the regions progressed throughout history, they began to realize they need one another to survive. Each region had a ruler, called a sheikh, and they banded together to create a federation known as UAE.
