Description:
Mauritian Creole people are the people of African and Malagasy origin who live in Mauritius. However, the Creole people today also includes minorities of people that have both African and Malagasy origins with Indian, Chinese, French and/or British backgrounds.

Origins

Brought in as slaves to work the plantations of Mauritius (as well as RĂ©union and Seychelles), the slaves were Malagasy or East-African and were brought mostly from Mozambique, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania and Zambia.

Creoles today

The Creoles and the Indo-Mauritians form the largest ethnic groups in Mauritius. They are divided into two main groups in Mauritius (which aren't exclusive but were used very often in the past) : Mulattos and Blacks. Among the community, there is a lot of multiracial variances from dark skinned Creoles to near white ones. There is still a high political segregation between Hindus and Creoles.

Demographical factors

The majority of Creoles are Christian (mostly Catholic with Protestant minorities including Seventh-day Adventists). Recently, influences from other communities of African origin, particularly the Caribbean, have influenced a significant number of Mauritians to become Rastafarian. There is also a non-religious minority as well as some Islamic converts. The language spoken at home for the majority of Creoles is Mauritian Creole, most of them also speak French and English.
