Expression N°31

Our friends at the e-journal Expressions, founded by Prof. Emmanuel Anati, have launched their March 2021 issue on the theme Cultural Identity.

Defining cultural identity concerns both individuals and social, ethnic and linguistic entities. It usually has a dominant component, producing strong feelings and behavior.
For the tribal world cultural identity is primarily the tribal identity, and an individual is classified and self-classifies himself according to his/her tribal adherence and to his/her particular moiety, totemic group or other sub-denomination. When urban settlements grow, tribal identities decrease in importance.
