Population Ecuador

Ecuador has over 13 million inhabitants and the country’s population density per square kilometre is the highest in South America. The indigenas (Indians) make up 25% of the population, while 65% is Mestizo (mixed Indian/Spanish descent). Seven per cent is white and there is a fair number of black inhabitants, as well as a minority of Asians. Each region has its own dress and it is possible to know from someone’s poncho, blouse, skirt or hat where they are from. Well-known Indian tribes from Ecuador include the Otavaleños, Salasacas, Cañaris and Saraguros. Most people live on the coast and in the highlands. A number of Indian tribes still live in the Amazonian rainforest.
