The people of Madagascar are called Malagasy. The original immigrants to Madagascar are believed to have come from East Africa. More recently, immigrants have come from Europe, China, and India. There are about twenty distinct African ethnic groups now recognized on the island. The Merina have been the most powerful group since the late eighteenth century, and resentment of the Merina by the other ethnic groups is a source of social unrest.
