The people of Belize are called Belizeans. About one-third of the population is of African descent, while about 45 percent is mestizo (mixed race). Another 15 percent is Maya and 7 percent Garifuna (Carib Indian). There are small numbers of people of European, Chinese, Asian Indian, and Syrian-Lebanese ancestry. For more information on the Maya, see the chapter on Mexico in Volume 6.
