Abstract: Motor development traditionally studied in WEIRD populations falls
victim to assumptions of universality similar to other domains described by Henrich et al.
However, cross-cultural research illustrates the extraordinary diversity that is normal in
motor skill acquisition. Indeed, motor development provides an important domain for
evaluating cultural challenges to a general behavioral science.
