Honduras



HONDURANS … 67

The people of Honduras are called Hondurans. The majority (more than 90 percent) are mestizo (mixture of white and Amerindian—native people). A little more than 5 percent of the population is Amerindian. There are also small numbers of Black Caribs (Garifuna—black and Amerindian) and Miskito (Amerindian, black, and white). Blacks are 2 percent, and about 1 percent are white (Spanish origin). For more information on the Garifuna, see the chapter on Belize in Volume 1; for the Miskito, see the chapter on Nicaragua in Volume 6.
