Yadira Cabrera Anthropology 2396 Test review Ethnocentrism Ethnocentrism - Believing that your culture, beliefs, and thoughts are better and  superior than everyone else’s. Cultural Relativity - Is when someone has a set of beliefs but is open to understanding  others without being judgmental. It is "the concept that the importance of a particular cultural  idea varies from one society or societal subgroup to another, the view that ethical and moral  standards are relative to what a particular society or culture believes to be good/bad,  right/wrong." Key examples from the Dobe Ju Hoansi 1. When the Ju Hoansi, refer to themselves as the “real” people, as if everyone else but  them is fake. It is a form of ethnocentrism because they have no proven facts or  evidence to prove their ideas about all the other clans.
