Romani culture

Romani Culture:
An Introduction

The Roma usually identify themselves and one another based on the external features of language, appearance, and occupations. Internal features such as customs, practices and attitudes constitute additional identifying characteristics but are more likely to vary among different groups. Some aspects of language, dress, and occupation may also vary. When discussing a population as dispersed as the Roma, it is therefore essential to consider internal diversity as well as similarities.
