    "Established traditional" seems rather redundant.

    Using 'traditional' implies that the practice is multigenerational. A person can have an established way of life; a people has a traditional one.

    I agree that you probably should not use both "established" and "traditional". I suggest that you look up the definitions of both words and decide which conveys the meaning you intend. We cannot decide what meaning you intend without context.
