indian project sites

My 10 web sites are    

1. http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9117377/history-of-West-Indies           this web site is mostly about the history of the West Indies. Some of the things that this web site talks about is like when the Hispanic controls begun witch starter in 1492 when Christopher Columbus landed in the new world and was followed by the partitioning of the region by the Spanish, French, British, Dutch, and Danish during the 17th and 18th centuries. A few other things are intervention in the Greater Antilles started in the early 19th century and culminated in the occupation of Cuba and annexation of Puerto Rico in 1898 and the purchase of the Danish Virgin Islands in 1917.

2.http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/world/A0861921.html     some things that this site has is info about Before European settlement on the islands of the West Indies, they were inhabited by three different peoples: the Arawaks, the Caribs, and the Ciboney. These indigenous tribes were effectively wiped out by European colonists. Christopher Columbus was the first European to visit several of the islands (in 1492). In 1496 the first permanent European settlement was made by the Spanish on Hispaniola. By the middle 1600s the English, French, and Dutch had established settlements in the area, and in the following century there was constant warfare among the European colonial powers for control of the islands. Some islands flourished as trade centers and became targets for pirates. Large numbers of Africans were imported to provide slave labor for the sugarcane plantations that developed there in the 1600s.

3. http://www.historyworld.net/wrldhis/PlainTextHistories.asp?historyid=aa23 this web site talks mostly about that makes up the West Indies .a string of islands, between Florida and Venezuela, encloses the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. The tightly clustered group at the southern end of this chain provides an easy sequence of stepping stones to the three largest islands - Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and Cuba. From the second millennium BC humans make their way along this chain from south America. The first to do so are a group of hunter-gatherers known to archaeologists as the Ciboney. In the early centuries of the Christian era more sophisticated tribes of neolithic farmers, the Arawak, move gradually north through the islands pusing the Ciboney ahead of them. From about AD 1000 a third group, the Caribs, begin to exert the same pressure on the Arawak. The Caribs, more primitive and ferocious than the Arawak, expand their territory by ruthless warfare. When they defeat their Arawak neighbours, it is their custom to marry the women and eat the men. The Arawak know these people as canibas, their own version of the word Caribs.
