QUESTION
I have an essay to write and the topic question is “what is a cultural hero”.I havent the slightest clue help?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My paper is due tomorrow.

ANSWER
Culture heroes can also refer to real or mythological heroes that changes a group’s world through invention or discovery.

Example…the creations of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam would respectively make Abraham, Jesus, and Mohammed culture heroes.

They can also be legendary figures…either real or fictitious. In ancient Greek and Roman mythology Perseus and Hercules could be considered as such. In the United States for a real person to be considered such…Daniel Boone and John Chapman (aka Johnny Appleseed) would fit that category.
