The very first settlers of this area were Amerindians. The Ciboney, arriving here from South America settled here approximately 5000 years BC. You can in fact see evidence of the island’s earliest inhabitants in rock carvings at Layou. It is believed that Christopher Columbus noticed this island on January 22, 1498. He gave it the name of St Vincent after St Vincent of Saragossa. The name Grenadines refers to the Spanish city of Granada. After many attempts by European nations, the French were the first Europeans to establish a colony. They brought with them African slaves to work the sugar, coffee, tobacco, and cotton plantations. It was the British in 1834 that abolished slavery in the area. On 27 October 1979, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines gained full independence. However, the nation decided to remain within the British Commonwealth. English is the official language. Most Vincentians speak Vincentian Creole.
