Ethnic identity is assumed to change depending on social context, and is strongly activated by migration across cultures. To construct a model of ethnic identity transformation, we interviewed 38 second-generation migrant workers from a Japanese colony in Bolivia. Of these, we analyzed in detail 10 cases from which statements regarding ethnic identity were obtained. The internal factors which shaped ethnic identity transformation were the recognition of the differences between self and others; the recognition of the exclusion from host society; and the subjective life-plan. The external factors which caused ethnic identity transformation were the social contexts in which the difference between self and others became salient.
