Abstract: Defining cultural identity is a perilous task. Social theorist Stuart Hall equates it with representations, or the way people express some common understandings about who ther are and how they are distinct from others - the concept of culture viewed anthropologically as a people's distinct ''way of life'' (Hall 1997, 2). Already a most difficult concept, cultural identity opacifies with further layers when used in social contexts marked by heightened diversity and mixedness: the boundaries between ''who they are'' and ''their distinctiveness from others'' becoming quite delicate to draw.
