St Vincent and the Grenadines History

The island of Saint Vincent was originally inhabited by native Caribs who called themselves Kalina and who were aggressive in preventing European settlements prior to 1719. Before this time, African slaves who were shipwrecked or who had escaped from Saint Lucia, Barbados and Grenada sought refuge here and intermarried with the Caribs, and came to be known as Black Caribs.

After this point, French settlers gained control of St Vincent and began plantations, which were worked by African slaves. The island was later ceded to Britain. The British and Black Caribs eventually clashed and 5,000 Black Caribs were deported to an island off the coast of Honduras. After slavery was abolished, immigration of indentured servants -- most from Portugal and East India -- took place.

St Vincent and the Grenadines went through various stages of colonial status under Britain until it gained independence in 1979.
