A brief questionnaire was used to measure cultural essentialism. The results indícate that a high percentage of participants have essentialist beliefs about the Magellan's identity. Some ideas that illustrate this result are the high adherence to assertions regarding Magellan's identity is hereditary, is part of the depths part of identity and must be protected from other cultures. Some of its implications for inter-group relations and prospects for future research are discussed.
