ST. CROIX ST. CROIX ST. CROIX ST. CROIX ST. CROIX ST. CROIX United States Virgin Islands St. Croix is the largest of the three United States Virgin Islands. The island's 28 miles long and has a rain forest at one end and cactus growing at the other. It was discovered by Colombus in 1493 when his crew anchored off of Salt River (an excellent dive site by the way) and got a less than friendly reception from the canaballistic Carib Indians. We promise a much better reception for you. Let's see, there were the Spanish, then English, Dutch, French, and Knights of Malta, before the Danish West Indies Company purchased the island and built the town of Christiansted in 1735 and Frederiksted in 1751. The island was primarily agricultural then with up to 241 sugar cane plantations. The estate names are still used which can lead to a little confusion as you try to find places like "Work and Rest", "All for the Better", and my favorite, "Estate Slob". In 1917 the U.S. purchased the Virgin Islands and we've been under the U.S. stars and stripes since. Visitors to St. Croix are impressed that the people are so friendly, and there's good duty free shopping ($1200 duty free including 6 fifths of alcohol if one is locally produced like Cruzan Rum or

This six-volume UNESCO History of the Caribbean attempts to integrate the historical experience of its peoples and societies from the earliest times to the present. The region it surveys includes the coasts lapped by the Caribbean Sea wherever a historical explanation of activities of the societies in the islands compel an extension of the boundary to the south or west.
The chapters on the twentieth century pay attention to continuity and change; to the slow modification of daily life as well as the changes in structure and processes which make life in the contemporary Caribbean different from that of previous centuries. In the final volume the editors discuss methodology, the nature of evidence from oral sources, the expressive and material cultures, and review the historiography of each territory as well as the work which has been done on slavery, resistance, emancipation, ethnicity, class, gender, ideology, nationalism and imperialism in Caribbean history. This history in its totality summarizes the current state of historical knowledge which permits accounts to cross the barriers of geography, language and politics. Much discrete insular work remains to be done on ideas and events before a more extensively integrated history of the Caribbean can be written. For the moment these six volumes have laid down the marker for future work.

General History of the Caribbean
Six volumes will cover the history of the islands of the Caribbean islands, east of the Central American coast. The islands are home to diverse populations – indigenous (Amerindians), Europeans (Spanish, British, French, Dutch) and Africans (victims of the slave trade) – who clash, cohabit, mingle and influence each other.
Four volumes have already been published in English (UNESCO Publishing/ Macmillan). The history of indigenous societies (until the arrival of the Spanish) goes back almost 10,000 years, according to the latest archaeological findings ( Volume I ). The European colonial conquest throughout the 16th century installs a new society and gives rise to Creole culture ( Volume II ). A more detailed examination of the impact of slavery is provided in the third volume, followed by another presenting the methodology used to compile the collection.
Titles to come will examine the 19th century with the abolition of slavery and the emergence of national movements ( Volume IV ), and the 20th century characterized by decolonization but also continued dependence on the West (

General Information Pages This "general information" page consists of some sites that are difficult to list in other categories of the CAC, as well as sites focused on pre-colonial and post-colonial history of indigenous peoples of the Caribbean that do no neatly fit into the other categories. In addition, sites pertaining to the indigenous peoples of other territories than those listed on the current community pages are listed here. They are listed here given that either they are insufficient in number to form their own category, or, they do not yet possess any organized asssociations of indigenous peoples.
  • The Ameribbean: Information, pictures and cultures of Indigenous Tribes in Central America and the Caribbean (in progress). “Ancient Beadmakers of the Caribbean”, By David R. Watters: “…The exquisitely crafted beads, pendants and related objects from Trants attest to the skill of its Saladoid inhabitants in working stone and shell. Our research involves analyzing beads held in museum collections as well as conducting new excavations to document these artifacts in their stratigraphic context, from which we can interpret their antiquity and cultural implications…” The Fire this Time: a comprehensive website utilising text, photos, animation and numerous musical mp3's to examine the links between black and indigenous peoples (Black Indians). Among other things the site examines the history of indigenous (Amerindian) people in Jamaica, Cuba, Belize, Bolivia, Peru, Costa Rica, Panama, Brazil and their struggles and cultures were linked and often joined with those of black people to form "Black Indian" culture. See especially the sections on "Black Indian Resistance" and "Supai Reservation".

Guadeloupe draws its culture from the mainly the French but also from African, East Indian and West Indian influence. This is displayed in the architecture of their buildings, which range from French colonial to Hindu temples. The food is a creation of the mixture of these cultures into a unique Creole cuisine. Guadeloupe is the center of the Caribbean's Creole culture and it boasts a blend of the above-mentioned influences. The official language spoken is French but creation patois is prevalent in the homes. Actually, festivals and cultural events, the traditional Creole dress, which is comprised of bright madras type plaid of oranges and yellow accompanied by a matching headdress usually dominate the scene. There is a great deal of artistic talent on the island that consists of a thriving music scene which includes beguine and zouk which are distinctively Afro-French-Caribbean; calypso and reggae which are distinctively Caribbean.
