The Orova are a cultural/racial group in the Southern Arc Islands. They are related to the Inuit, and had "arrived" in the islands before the majority of Europeans. The Orova are not spread evenly throughout the islands; regions with large Orova populations include central Grand Island and the area just north of said island. Overall, Orova make up roughly one-fifth of the Southern Arc Islands' population. The Orova Party is a major political party with a central focus on improving Orova rights; there are numerous, smaller Orova-based parties as well.

They speak the Orova language.
