People and Society of Seychelles

The people of the Seychelles are of European (mainly French), or African origin. There are also Seychelles descended from Indian and Arab immigrants. The abolition of slavery on the island caused widespread intermingling between races and different ethnicity, as a result of which most of the Seychelles people are of mixed race primarily of African, Malagasy and French origin, integrated by a common Creole language.

The official languages on the islands are English and French but a majority of Seychelles speaks Creole, a mélange of French and African dialects not dissimilar to that spoken on Mauritius.
