The coexistence and interethnic understanding is very characteristic for Albanians as an absolute majority, yet this feature was left aside. It is believed that the right is on the side of the “strongest” and in our case the Albanians has been “the strongest”, because it is superior in number. In reality there were no such relations, with the use of force. The settlers are normally accepted, not seen as conqueror. In the milestones as The National Renaissance, the Declaration of Independence, the Second World War, as in other cases, the minorities are generally with the Albanians. Generally the settlers, regardless the time of period settled in Albania and the conditions of Albanian reality, so far have maintained their individuality and ethnic characteristics, of their origin. Albanians and their ancestors during the long invasions had the real experience of coexistence, understanding and harmony, with mutual communication bridges. Furthermore, the marriages among different religions are as well evidences of this tolerance and harmony. Nowadays, it is known that between the folklore of Albanians and that of Albanian ethnic minorities have had relation and intercommunications, not excluding one or another. Presenting this intercommunication, it is emphasized in this article that they were used to determine the coexistence and interethnic understanding in Albania. Furthermore these would help to have harmonic and civilized relations among Albanians everywhere they live and work, having in mind that the cultural identity is a very important element.
