The Igbo people (Igbo: Ndi Igbo) are an ethnic group in West Africa. They are one of the larger groups in West Africa. The Igbo speak the Igbo language. The Igbo people are found in Southeastern Nigeria, referred to as Igboland. There are some Igbos in Cameroon. There are major amounts of Igbo people found in other countries that are not in Africa. This is because some Igbos have moved to other countries and because they were forced to go to other countries by the Atlantic slave trade. They are in countries such as the United States, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Barbados, Bahamas, and the United Kingdom.
