Study will consider the change from peasant to worker, the change from transients to residents, and the change from aggregation to community as the group elaborated values and cultural forms in order to maximize its chances in the new environment. Study will contribute to the understanding of adaptation process in a multiethnic society where the main ideal is subculturation rather than assimilation.
