Early Settlers.
The first inhabitants of the islands were pre-ceramic people called Sibonay. They are believed to have arrived about 2,100 years ago from Central America. The next people to colonise the islands were the Arawak who originated from the Orinoco River area in modern day Venezuela. They in turn were followed by the Caribs, again from South America. The Arawaks and Caribs left far more remains than the Sibonay and there are many archaeological sites scattered around the islands. These sites are marked with piles of shells, pieces of pottery, and old flint tools and some rock drawings on St. Kitts. St. Kitts was called Liamuiga , or "fertile land," by Caribs which was a reference to the island's rich and productive volcanic soil. Since 1983 the main mountain peak, a 3,792-foot extinct volcano, is called Mount Laimuiga. Nevis was called Oualie - pronounced "OO-A-LEE" - by the Caribs.

Speakers Criticize Administering Powers Lack of Cooperation, Emphasize United Nations Decolonization Efforts Not Complete (Received from a UN Information Officer.) CASTRIES, Saint Lucia, 27 May The abstention by the administering Powers from the current regional meeting was just another indication of how some of them intended to deal with the eradication of colonialism, the representative of Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization, told the Special Committee on the Situation with Regard to Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples this morning, as it met to continue consideration of the substantive issues on the agenda of its regional Seminar. He said the administering Powers had failed to respond to the United Nations mandate to provide assistance to the Territories under their jurisdiction in order to have a smooth and orderly transition. The biggest problem for small, undeveloped nations was the immigration of its people to the more prosperous States. Colonizing Powers in the past and the administering Powers today had made immigration considerably easier. As a result of those policies, many Non-Self-Governing Territories were depleted of their young working force and the demographics in many of those places had been alarmingly altered. Rafael Dausa Cespedes (Cuba), Vice-Chair of the Committee, addressing the Committee during the exchange of views, said that taken as a whole, the achievement of the United Nations in the field of decolonization was among one of the most remarkable in the entire history of the Organization. The actions taken had helped to give birth to so many nations which were now Member States. Serious misunderstandings, however, had arisen. One such case was that decolonization was over and the United Nations and the Special Committee had nothing left to do. Cuba believed that the role of the Committee continued to be that of ensuring that the remaining Non-Self-Governing Territories exercised their right to self-government.

The regional seminar would provide a unique opportunity to recommit to the The Committee’s history had not been easy and the Committee had not always
Press Release
(Received from an Information Officer.)
He said since the adoption of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples in 1960, more than 80 million people had attained independence, but there were still 17 Non-Self-Governing Territories remaining.  The Special Committee of 24 organized seminars like the current one to give the more than two million people who lived in those Territories the chance to make their views known on the unique problems they faced.
The information gathered in those seminars, he continued, had helped to raise awareness in the international community about those problems.  As a result, the General Assembly had proclaimed the Second International Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism.  The regional seminar would provide a unique opportunity to recommit to the goal of assuring that all peoples could exercise their right of self-determination.
Ricardo Alarcon de Quesada, President of the National Assembly of Cuba, said the First Decade on the Eradication of Colonialism had just been completed, but unfortunately, that decade would not remain in history as the decade in which that phenomenon had been eradicated.  In the future, it might be called the Decade in which poverty had spread and deepened.  The ratio of people living under the poverty line was the same as at the beginning of he 20
