Abstracts
The objective of the empirical research conducted was to answer
the following questions: To what extent is Croatian ethnic identity
expressed? In which way is Croatian identity expressed? Which
factors influence the loss or subsistence of Croatian ethnic
identity? Is there a connection between some sociodemographic
characteristics of Croatian immigrants in Chile today and the
expression of their identity? Based on the results obtained it is
concluded that in a small number of cases there is a statistically
significant difference in the answers according to the examinees' age, gender, education and other independent variables. In
several cases a difference is indicated among examinees with
regard to age, for example among examinees of the younger
and older generations, especially regarding language, visits to
Croatia and return to Croatia. It has been determined that
Croatian ethnic identity is quite well preserved among the
examinees. Namely, 58.8% of the examinees said that they
always felt like Croats, 65% of the examinees are members of
associations of Croatian immigrants, and 42.2% of them
regularly communicate with relatives in Croatia. It is mostly the
oldest generations who nurture and maintain Croatian customs,
while Croatian ethnic identity is recognisable in all associations of
Croatian immigrants. The examinees think that support should
be given to younger people for greater participation in
associations of Croatian immigrants as well as for learning the
Croatian language. They see the key to success in establishing
cultural and scientific cooperation between Chile and Croatia.
