Reviews
The first human inhabitants of Jamaica arrived on the island some time after 600 AD. These Ostionoid people, as they are called by archaeologists, were the ancestors of the Taíno — once known to generations of scholars as Arawaks, due to their supposed cultural similarities to the Arawaks of the Guianas. This is the first thing Lesley-Gail Atkinson sets straight in her introduction to The Earliest Inhabitants; “they are two distinct ethnic groups.”
