A Word about Antiguan History
Words like hurricane, hammock, tobacco, barbecue, savannah, and canoe, all derive from the language of the Taino, who were the original settlers of the island. Later colonists included the Spanish, French, English, and even Americans from the mainland. Antigua became a British Colony in 1667 but did not gain full independence until 1981.
