Cuba’s First Inhabitants
It is worthwhile remembering that the population of Cuba started four millenniums before the arrival of Columbus, with the arrival of different migratory currents. The admiral found on his arrival, along with the charms of the exuberant nature, the presence of pacific and naive settlers that offered him cotton, yarn and small pieces of gold in exchange for cheap items. Later, after exploring the south coast of Cuba during his second trip, he realizes of the diversity of those indigenous settlers with different levels of socio-cultural development. Therefore, the population was divided into groups such as: Collector-Hunters-Fishers and Farmers-Ceramists.
