Answer

Start with one or more on the library's encyclopedias of world culture.  For example, the Encyclopedia of World Cultures offers descriptions of different ethnic groups around the world, and may be found online here:

The Worldmark Encyclopedia of Cultures will offer similar descriptions, though it is available in print only, in the reference collection on the second floor of the Meriam Library.  The link for the catalog record for this resource is here:

There may be journal articles and books on your culture as well.
