Abstract:

Ethnicity means peoplehood. Ethnicity involves a sense of commonality or community derived from networks of family relations that have preserved experiences across several generations. Ethnicity includes the culture of people & is a major determinant of values, attitudes, perceptions, needs, modes of expression, behaviour, & industry. Previous research has indicated that ethnocultural features are carried into second, third, & even fourth generations; implications for the emotional adjustment of aged persons are discussed.
