There are two main cultural groups on the island of Malo, the cultural group of Auta that inhabits the western part of the island as well as the cultural group of Tinjivo that inhabits the eastern portion of the island. Both these cultural group speak a variant of the Tamambo language. Malo is also the name of the Austronesian language spoken on the island.

Interesting fact: The earliest archaeological evidence of human habitation in Vanuatu is from a site on Malo that was settled around 1400 BC. Artifacts from this early settlement are characteristics of the Lapita culture.
