Pastoralism could be defined as a production system, or a type of land use; furthermore, it can get ethnic or cultural attributes, and yet neither of these definitions represents its nature in a satisfactory way, since they do not include all aspects of importance. For instance, pastoral, as an adjective, means peaceful, idyllic, rural, or rustic, while pastoralist as a noun is used to indicate cultural identity of people who practice pastoralism, share a pastoralist background, or are involved in activities related to pastoralism.
