Ethnoculture concerns primarily the theory and methodology of human cultural groupings, their cultural style patterns of sharing and organization, in a metacultural context of their historical and social relations with other peoples or groups of peoples in the world. Social identity becomes constituted upon multiple levels primarily through group processes and social interactions within and between groups or what can be called communities of people who share common cultural configurations.
The study of ethnoculture concerns the excoriation of the patterning of cultural response at multiple levels, in terms of individual life worlds and in terms of larger group contexts and processes.
