Transcript of Madagascar

How and when was Madagascar found?
Madagascar was first reached by sea-faring people of southeast Asia (Indonesian) descent. The first European to set foot on Madagascar was Portuguese sea captain Diogo Dias on August 10, 1500 after he was blown off course on the way to India. He named the island St. Lawrence. In the 1500s Portuguese, French, Dutch, and English attempt to establish trading settlements which fail due to hostile conditions and fierce local Malagasy.
