How does reason shape our culture?
Can you also give me examples to how using reason may shape culture, like a situation that has happened before?

Every time someone thinks before they act, reason is the basis for the action that they choose.
If the holidays we celebrate are part of our culture, various lines of reasoning can be seen to have influenced their shape. People may reason that Thanksgiving is a good opportunity to gather, and bond, with geographically distant family members. Commercial interests may have their own reasons for promoting holidays.

'Reason' provides the grounds, rationale, and basis
for our decisions, and what takes place in our culture.
Choose any event that you can think of
and you will be able to dissect it with all of the above.

Well reason is used in justice, determining right and wrong, what laws we're to have. Police have to use reason in determining who to arrest, and forensic investigators are using science. Judges and lawyers also must use reason.
and I would say justice or medicine would be one of the greatest applications of reason (U.S) culture has ever made.
and, I would suggest that a given society's ability to reason is the best indicator of how they will take new information.

Sadly it doesn't appear to. Culture is shaped by power, self interest, materialism, and chance.

It doesn't. People don't use reason for their behavior.
They just do what the masses are doing. Collective behavior.
Maybe 911 affected people, and how they feel toward other cultures.
Sometimes celebrities can start a trend, or coin a new word.
Like Miley Cyrus and her "twerking."

Or, look at the opposite, lack of reason is more shaping.. climate change deniers, flat earthers, anyone believing in a god/religion, anti vaccine promoters all lack reason and are negatively shaping our culture.

To some its a matter of survival as in the first white man coming to North America and shaping it as it is today.
