Dr. Little originally delivered this paper at the annual general meeting of the American Anthropological Association at New York in November 1949. The term "Creole" denotes a specific group originating from the settlers of the Sierra Leone Colony, living there to-day, and who, through migration and fusion with indigenous peoples elsewhere on the West Coast, have established cultural communities of a kind similar to that in Sierra Leone.
