1 face, 1 story, 1 island
We know how beautiful the scenery is on Reunion, the ultimate island. But we’re less familiar with the people at the heart of the wealth of this French island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Previously known by the names of Dina Morgabine, Santa Apolonia or the Bourbon Island, Reunion has become a symbol to the world of peoples living together in harmony.
Reunion Island is a melting pot of civilisations from Europe, Madagascar, India, Asia and Africa. The current population is one of a kind, the result of centuries of migrations and ethnic mingling. Today, the islanders form a multiethnic, multicultural model of harmonious co-existence. Together, they are the heart and soul of Reunion, the ultimate island, whose very identity lies in its cultural particularities and its unique history.
So let’s meet the women and men who make Reunion Island.
Every week, we bring you stories of the people of Reunion.
