This paper's aim was to document contemporary identification processes on the example of existing Croatian cultural and arts societies in the region of Kordun that have been active after the 1991-1995 war in Croatia. After the war in Croatia during the first half of the 1990s, in the changed social and political conditions, national and ethnic belonging, as one of the levels of identity among the Croatian population of Kordun, has been intensified among other things also by activities and performances of cultural and arts societies. Regional and local identity are also present, and certain level of identity is more or less emphasized, depending on the audience of the societies' performances. The paper also attempts at show several meanings of the name Kordunaö, having in mind the pejorative meanings and stereotypes that have been assigned to it. It also discusses selected elements of traditional culture through which these societies manifest their ethnic, national, regional and local belongings today, using them as symbols of their own (cultural) identity.
