Ethnic groups. Montage illustration of the faces of people from different ethnic groups. The races shown are (with their labelling number): European Caucasian (1); north African (2); Indian (3); Malayan or south-east Asian (4); Mongoloid (5); North American Indian (6); Inuit or Eskimo (7); Australian aborigine (8); negro or central African (9); Xhosa or southern African (10); Hottentotte, a group that lived on Cape Horn, South Africa (11); Papuan from Papua Guinea. A number of ethnic groups show biological adaptions, such as height or skin tone, to their environment. However, the division of people into distinctly different races is largely arbitary.
