    Your father is/was Peruvian because that's where he was raised. You and your mother are American because that is where you were raised. You speak English and your culture and traditions are American. Your religion may be Jewish or Catholic or neither. You are, like most Americans, of mixed ancestry. If you need to label yourself, you can say you're part Peruvian.

    If we're talking about ethnicity, then mixed should work.

    "Mixed" or "American" would both work.

    YOUR ethicity it YOUR culture, customs, affiliations and associations in the country YOU were born/brought up in and in YOUR family home so the food YOU eat, the language YOU speak, the holidays YOU celebrate....

      Yes, YOUR ethnicity is the language and culture YOU were raised in

    To the extent that it is important, which you Americans seem to find that it is, you just need to say that you are American with some European and some South American heritage.
