    Suriname and Guyana have both multiethnic and therefore multicultural societies. Many years of gold exploration, plantation work and colonialism under different european powers saw ppl of different races setting their feet on the soil of these two countries.

    Guyana today, is made up of East Indians (more than 40%) followed by africans, amerindians, chinese, portuguese and mixed races. Caucasians would be of portuguese descent or some other european heritage. However they are a minority.

    Suriname's demographics are similar to Guyana's. East indians make up a major ethnic group, u have chinese, amerindians as well and descendants of dutch and portuguese
