An ethnic group is a human population whose members identify with each other, usually on the basis of a presumed common genealogy or ancestry.
Ethnic groups are also usually united by common cultural, behavioural, linguistic, or religious practices.
Members of an ethnic group generally claim a strong cultural continuity over time, although some historians and anthropologists have documented that many of the cultural practices on which various ethnic groups are based are of recent invention.
