The Balinese people
Since the early 10th century and until the 20th century, Bali was ruled by native kingships who enriched and shaped the Balinese culture. Nowadays, we can count around 4 million inhabitants in Bali. However, around 90% of Bali’s population is considered as historically Balinese, the rest of the population coming from various islands in Indonesia (mainly coming from East Java and Lombok). This brings incredible ethnic diversity in Bali and mix many people and cultures in harmony.
