They historically came under the cultural and multi-ethnic sway of the Portuguese Empire in the East and retain certain aspects of the Portuguese languageRoman Catholic faith, and Latin cultural practices, including internal and external architecture, art, and cuisine that reflect this contact.
The term Luso comes from the Roman empire 's province of Lusitaniait roughly corresponds to modern Portugal. Examples of this art, especially of furniture and religious art are found throughout Europe and in the islands of Macaronesia.

Luso-Asians traded and influenced each other within Asia as well as with Portugal and other parts of Catholic Europe, especially Spain and Italy. This exchange produced distinctive elements in domestic, civic and religious Luso-Asian architecture, as well as Luso-Asian cuisine.
The European continent exploration of the Asian continent after the arrival of D. Vasco Da Gama during the Age of Discovery in the Indian Ocean aroundwas followed by the establishments of coastal trading bases called feitorias factories and forts. Portuguese traders, Catholic missionaries, who were FranciscansDominicansAugustinians and Jesuitssuch as Saint Francis Xavier  and administrators poured into the vast region.
These men often married local residents with the official encouragement of D. Alfonso de Albuquerque by the royals granted approval in the form called Politicos dos casamentos. A resultant mixed race Mestizo population that was Catholic and Lusophone Portuguese-speaking developed.
The evangelical work of missionaries produced Catholic Asian communities speaking specific, Portuguese, Asian languages and often a Portuguese-based Creoles who produced religious artifacts, often in ivory, ebony, teak, silver, and gold. Asian women produced distinctive embroideries on velvet, silk, and cotton that were prized in Europe.
The people who hail from Portuguese and varied Asian ancestors are termed Luso-Asian. Since the first voyages of the Portuguese into the Indian Ocean at the end of the fifteenth century, the Portuguese suffered a labour shortage as their European crew suffered from scurvy, malaria, and tropical diseases.
Additionally the Portuguese relied on local mariners of the Indian Ocean World to guide them through the winds, currents and localized reefs. As Portuguese trade increased in the sixteenth century, more Portuguese vessels arrived in Asia but an increasing of European crew were leaving the ships to engage in local or "country trade".

Some Portuguese even ed forces with local pirates. Coming from areas of Portuguese influence, these men often spoke their own languages and broken Portuguese, which in time evolved into a creole Portuguese. The Lascarim became invaluable to further Portuguese exploration, defense and trade.
The dispersal of Luso-Asians occurred very early after the contact between Portugal and the late medieval nations of Asia. Indians, Siamese, Malays, Chinese and Japanese travelled to Portugal as sailors, clerics, servants, slaves and ambassadors. Many male Luso-Asians entered trade within the Portuguese maritime empire and many Luso-Asian women ed their Portuguese husbands or masters in official or unofficial capacities within the Portuguese sphere of influence.

This genetic and cultural mixing especially between Portugal, Cochin, Goa, Ayutthaya, Malacca, Macau and Nagasaki in the sixteenth and early seventeenth century marks the first dispersal. A second dispersal occurred in the seventeenth century as former Portuguese strongholds fell under the English or Dutch East India Companies, and with the loss of Portuguese privileges in Japan.
Luso-Asians were dispersed as prisoners and refugees in this movement. There was also some contribution of Ludo-Asians to French colonies in India. The third dispersal came in the Nineteenth century with the rise of British imperial power.
The rise of British rule in Asia, corresponded with population increase in Goa and Macau and a general feeling that the Portuguese had all but forgotten their Asian colonies.
Three events in particular provided the movement of Luso-Asians to areas under British influence; the ing of the Treaty of Nanjing in opened-up Hong Kong and Shanghai to the Macanese. The opening of the Suez Canal in brought opportunities for Goans in Aden. Finally the creation of the British Protectorate of Zanzibar in and development of the Uganda Railway brought further opportunities for Goans in East Africa.
A final dispersion occurred in the later half of the twentieth century.

This last phase of dispersal was connected to European de-colonisation in Asia and Africa and increased nationalism and indigenisation in the new post-colonial nation states. In Asia the partition and creation of India and Pakistan, followed by the annexation of Goa were prime motivation for Luso-Asian migration within the Indian sub-continent.
The rise of opportunities in the Persian Gulf absorbed much Luso-Asian migration. Similarly, there was Luso-Asian migration from independent Malaysia to Singapore. The mass expulsion of the Ugandan Asians in and that of Goans from Malawi added to the flow. The independence of Angola, Mozambique and to a lesser extant Cape Verde provided further refugee migration of Luso-Asians to Portugal and Brazil. However, it must be noted that many Anglo-Indians and Eurasians have Luso-Indian ancestors especially on their female side. There is also a distinct Konkani-speaking Catholic community who call themselves East Indians and reside in Mumbai and who were under Portuguese rule prior to Bombay being handed to the British in Luso-Indians and Luso-Goans are people who have mixed varied Asian, Indian subcontinent and Portuguese ancestry and are either citizens of IndiaPakistan or Bangladesh today.
They may also be people of Portuguese descent born or living in the Republic of India and resident in other parts of the world. They are majority Catholic and may have spoken or presently speak Portuguese Creole.
There are currently about people who speak Portuguese Creole in Daman.
In Diuthe Portuguese Creole language is nearly extinct. However, the Catholic community is very much alive. Goa was the capital of a large Portuguese eastern empire.

Some also have African maternal ancestry due to Goa's contacts with the African territories of Portugal and the British African colonies. Luso-Goans, or Porto-Goesas as they are also known in Portuguese, speak Konkani and some speak Portuguese though today most currently speak English as well.
Their Konkani dialect is written in the Roman script and has a larger infusion of words of Portuguese origin as compared to the Konkani spoken by other communities. Portuguese was the language for the governance of overseas province for over years but it was never spoken as a first language by the majority of the population of Goa. Today, Portuguese is spoken as a first language only by few upper-class Catholic families and the older generation.
However, the annual of Goans learning Portuguese as a second language has been continuously increasing in the 21st century. During the period of absolute monarchy in Portugal, the Portuguese nobility residing in Goa enjoyed the most privileged status and held the most important government offices, and high positions in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. The influence of the nobles decreased substantially with the introduction of the constitutional monarchy inalthough the erosion of their power had begun with the accession of the Marquis de Pombal as the Prime Minister of Portugal in the midth century.
After Portugal became a republic insome Luso-Goan descendants of the nobility at Goa continued to bear their families' titles according to standards sustained by the Instituto da Nobreza Portuguesa Institute of Portuguese Nobilitytraditionally under the authority of the head of the formerly ruling House of Braganza. The economic decline of Portugal that began with the period of Spanish rule and British and Dutch global advancement in the seventeenth century forced Goans to migrate to Bombay and Puneand by the nineteenth century to Calcutta and Karachi. The last newspaper in Portuguese ended publication in s.
There is a department of Portuguese language at the Goa University and the majority of Luso-Goan students choose Portuguese as their third language in schools. Luso-Goans have a choice to either be fully Portuguese citizens or fully Indian citizens or fully Portuguese citizens with an OCI Overseas citizenship of India granted by the Indian nationality law.
Portuguese Cochin was the first capital of the Portuguese Eastern Empire. Numerous churches attest to the Portuguese presence. The church of St. The mixed Indian-Portuguese and Indian converts began to speak English in place of the Portuguese and some of them also anglicised their names. They are, now, part of the East Indian community of Bombay. In Negapatam, inthere were 20 families that spoke Creole Portuguese. However, in recent years thousands have left the country for Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.
See main article Bayingyi people. Portuguese people have a long history in Myanmarwith many Bayingyi peoplefrom Upper Myanmarparticularly the Sagaing Regionclaiming partial or entire Portuguese Origin. These Portuguese origins date back to the 16th and 17th century Burmese artillery and musketeer corpsmade up exclusively of foreign Portuguese and Muslim mercenaries, such as Filipe de Brito e Nicote. Portuguese mercenaries did not return to Portugal, and settled in their own hereditary villages in Upper Burma where they practiced their own religion and followed their own customs.
It is reasonable that there are at least 1, Bayingyi in Myanmar to this day, with an Census purporting around 3, Bayingyis,   and it is entirely possible many thousands more have some Portuguese ancestry. Centuries of inter-marriage have left the Bayingyi more or less assimilated into the Bamar ethnic group of Myanmar, but they have still kept their sense of Portuguese identity and Roman Catholic Religion.

The community was primarily composed of Eurasians of Asian-Portuguese origin and ethnic Goansas well as few Burgher people from Sri Lanka, and some European Portuguese. See Burgher people and Portuguese Burghers. However, there is a specific community people of African origin who speak Sri Lankan Portuguese Creole. Additionally, Portuguese names, Catholicism and aspects of Luso-Asian Architecture are found among the fishing communities of the Northwest coast of Sri Lanka.
There were many Portuguese communities in the " Spice Islands " prior to the arrival of the Dutch in the Seventeenth Century.
Many of these communities included Luso-Malay people who eventually merged with the Dutch to form Eurasian communities. However, one particular community of Catholic Luso-Asians survives bearing Portuguese-derived surnames in the predominantly Muslim state of Indonesia. This community is based on the island of Flores in and around the town of Larantuka.
The communities are known as the Larantuqueiros. Singapore has a community of Eurasians who claim origin from the Luso-Malays of Melaka. Luso-Asians in the seventeenth to eighteenth centuries of Timorese history were called Topasses. They belonged to various communities under their own Captains.
Portuguese was restored in Timor Leste as one of the official languages. It had its first contact during the Portuguese discoveries of the East, but it was largely exposed to Portuguese Timor in the 18th century after its division from the rest of the island by the Netherlands. However, Tetum remained the main lingua franca of Timor-Leste during Portuguese rule, although the most commonly used form, known as Tetun-Prasa used in Diliwas heavily influenced by Portuguese.
Following the Carnation Revolution in Portugal inpolitical parties emerged in Portuguese Timor for the first time, all of which supported the continued use of Portuguese, including APODETIthe only party to advocate integration with Indonesiawhich stated that it would support the right to "enjoy the Portuguese language" alongside Indonesian. On December 7,nine days after declaring independence from Portugal, Timor-Leste was invaded by Indonesiawhich declared the territory as its 27th province inwith Indonesian as the sole official language.
During the Indonesian occupationthe use of Portuguese in education, administration and the media was banned by the Indonesian authorities, which saw the language as a threat. The reintroduction of Portuguese as an official language aroused criticism amongst Indonesian-educated youth, but according to the census, Code-switching between the two languages is common.
