    Sierra Leone Creole People
    The Sierra Leone Creole people (or Krio people) is an ethnic group in Sierra Leone. The Creole people are descendants of freed African American, West Indian and Liberated African slaves who settled in the Western Area of Sierra Leone between 1787 and about 1885. The colony was established by the British, supported by abolitionists, under the Sierra Leone Company as a place for freedmen. The settlers called their new settlement Freetown.

Like their Americo-Liberian neighbors and sister ethnic group in Liberia, Creoles have varying degrees of European ancestry due to rape of previously enslaved Africans in America and because some of the settlers were descended from European Americans and other Europeans
