Guyana is a diverse country on the mainland of South America often also considered part of the Caribbean community. Guyana is often referred to as an African country due to its large population of decedents from African countries.

Afro-Guyanese people are generally descendant of Africa brought to Guyana from the coast of West Africa to work on sugar plantations during the era of the Atlantic slร ve trade. The date of the first arrival of enslร ved Africans  in Guyana is not known, but it is believed the first group were brought by Dutch settlers who migrated from Tobago from as early as the mid-seventeenth century.

The majority of the population of Guyana is of African (29.2 per cent), mixed heritage (19.9 per cent) and East Indian (39.9 per cent) descent (2012 Census), with Indo-Guyanese being the dominant group. The rest of the population is of European, Chinese or indigenous origin.

Guyana is the only country in South America with English as the official language.  Guyana gained independence in 1966. Although English is the official language, most Guyanese have Guyanese Creole as a first language.
