Lists of ethnic groups ▪ SaleArticle with links

The following is an incomplete list of modern ethnic groups.

Methodology

There has been constant debate over the classification of ethnic groups. Membership of an ethnic group tends to be associated with shared cultural heritage, ancestry, history, homeland, language (dialect), or ideology, and with symbolic systems such as religion, mythology and ritual, cuisine, dressing style, physical appearance, etc. Hence, matching of people into their respective ethnic groups remains heavily divided. There have been various approaches to understanding ethnicity, but there is no clear consensus on the exact definition and classification of ethnic groups. The list below attempts to identify ethnic groups generally accepted by anthropologists and historians, or fit the criteria of what defines an ethnic group (e.g. Afro-American peoples of the Americas.

The list is further complicated by miscegenation, or the mixing of different racial groups. As such, these people could not be classified into a single ethnic group. This is common in places such as the United States, where most citizens' ancestors came from different parts of Europe. Citizens with unclear ethnicities may be grouped based on their ancestry (e.g. Ancestry_of_the_people_of_the_United_States), or into a completely new ethnicity (e.g. Mestizos). These people are included in the list.

The below list does not contain:

or any other groups that does not fit into the criteria listed above.
