    Default What are the newest ethnic groups?

    I think the Pennsylvania Dutch might qualify, they formed in the early 18th century.

    That's not a new ethnic group, it's an old ethnic group in a new place. The various maroon communities in the Americas are pretty new but I think there are other ethnicities that are newer.

    I can't speak for non Jamaican maroons. However when it comes to Jamaican maroons (I'm one of btw) we don't see ourselves as an completely separate ethnic group from the rest of Jamaicans. You could call it more of a sub-ethnic group or 'tribe'.
    You could say Jamaican maroons (and possibly other maroons) are the equivalent of Gullah/Geechee and Louisiana Creole when it comes to Aframs.

    I would have to say the American Mestizo.

    It was formed mainly in the later 20th century and is still being formed to this day.

    Essentially, it is a person who is of Native American, Latin-European, and Euro-American heritage. The amount of each heritage within a person differs, of course.

    Although, it is not really acknowledged, I consider it an ethnic group as this type of mix is becoming very prevalent in the American Southwest, and even in other parts of the nation.

    For example, I myself have ancestors that are Native to Zacatecas. I also have ancestors who took part in the conquest of the Americas as conquistadors. And, I have ancestors who fought in the revolutionary war.

    No, it is a new ethnic group. PA Dutch are distinct from European Germans and even from German-Americans.

    Distinct in what sense? I've never heard any Dutch Americans say they're "Philadelphia dutch" nor have I seen anyone make the distinction outside of the natural fact of descent. If we're using "ethnicity" in such a loose sense as to mean any group of people in a place that are distinct to others around them, then "Philadelphia dutch" are not the newest ethnic group. Far from it.

    I only know about history of European ethnic groups. In central and eastern Europe ethnic groups were formed between 13th-17th centuries.

    Pennsylvania Dutch (not Philadelphia Dutch) are of German, not Dutch descent.

    Then how are they distinct from the dutch in Germany? And how are they not from Dutch descent if they're Dutch?
