Of the various cultures, ethnicities or nationalities you belong to, which most strongly do you consider yourself?

Is there a culture you cannot claim heritage from but which you feel quite resonant with?

My father's family are Italian and I have always felt that runs really strong in my veins, however I find myself quite drawn to the Greek Pantheon of Gods/Goddesses and mythology. So I am guess as a generalisation mediteranean is a good one for me!!

I have a little bit of everything apparently. Most notably is my father's side though, which is German and further along the lines the Blackfoot Tribe (Native American).

Funny enough I was always fascinated and wanted to be a part of the Scottish folk. Then in high school I found out my dads side came from there and that explained that draw I had all my life LOL.

Ive always been fascinated by the Native American people as well as the Egyptian and Greek.

I used to think I was mainly German but last year I got big into Genealogy and learned that I was barely any German, more French than anything. Which is quite shocking.

I am mixed Maltese, Iranian and Welsh. I have to admit, I don't feel much affinity with the Welsh side, I suppose because the extended of that part of the family don't have any cultural traditions that they have kept, whereas family from the Maltese and Iranian sides have, so they have a bigger influence.

DH is Italian and whilst I am not, I am learning a lot about his culture, we want our household to have a mix of both our cultures.

My mother was Irish and English. My father is mainly German and a little mix of everything.

I relate to my Celtic roots, but I do get pulled towards Norse at times. I am trying to learn how to combine Norse and Celtic.

I am Irish, English, German, and who knows what else...Heinz 57 mutt definitely.

I feel a pull towards the Celtic culture, or European in general, though I'm not exactly sure why...BUT going to Nepal and Tibet is on my bucket list of things to do...for some reason they are really pulling my soul to connect with them.

I'm a mutt

But I don't really relate to any one specific part of my heritage.. and I'm ok with that.

I have German, Irish, Scottish, English, Dutch, and at least 3 different Native American tribes in my bloodline.... Cherokee, Apache, and Cheyenne.

I'm mainly drawn to the Celtic people.... also the Egyptians.
