You're ethnicity is just what you listed. But, if I was you I'd just put Western European. That's the difficulty with us New worlders: You can't just pin us to one ethnicity. We're a mix of Europeans.

Your tribe I would say Celtic. ie Galician, Basque, France (Gauls)

According to the US Census Bureau you are Hispanic!:thumbup
Seriously this is a problem. You could say Peruvian but you would have to share that identity with non-Whites. Actually this why many Americans call themselves White, to distinguish themselves from non-Whites. If your ancestors are predominately from Spain & Spanish is your mother-tongue maybe you should refer to yourself as Spanish. It is no different then someone of Scottish, English & Welsh ancestry calling themselves British.

Your nationality is Peruvian, your Ethnicity is Spanish, and your tribe is Celtic/Iberian, I would say.
