Ethnic Groups   



 

Ecuador is not only home to a rich biological diversity but also has a very diverse population with still many ethnic groups living in the different regions of the country with their own distinct cultures and values. The majority of Ecuadorians is of mixed race in varying degrees, mostly Indian with White, called Mestizos (60% of the population), there are around 20% Indians, 10% White (mostly of Spanish origin) and 10% of black African origin. All those numbers are rounded up and should not be taken at face value but should give you an idea of the rich and varied composition of Ecuadorian society. Find below a list of ethnic groups by regions.
