Comoros History, Geography, and Culture

Comoros is an archipelago of islands in the Indian Ocean, off the eastern coast of Africa. First settled by Bantu speakers who came from East Africa, as well as by Arabs and Austronesians, it was colonized by the French during the 19th century, before becoming independent in 1975.

The three main islands of the archipelago are:  Ngazidja (Grande Comore), Mwali (Mohéli) and Ndzuani (Anjouan). It has fewer than a million inhabitants, and its main languages are Arabic, French, Comoran (a blend of Swahili and Arabic). Most of the people identify as Muslim.
