Notes

General Note:
Kalinago (Carib) Indians migrated from South America into the Windward Islands beginning about 1400. They resisted the Europeans, and eventually retreated to the more mountainous parts of St. Vincent and Dominica, where they inter-married with escaped African slaves. In 1796 the British deported the St. Vincent Kalinago (about 5,000) to the island of Ruatan off Honduras. From there, they moved into present-day Belize, where their descendants live today. Descendants of the Dominica Kalinago still live on Dominica. This print portrays a number of their customs.
General Note:
Illustration from The History, Civil and Commercial of the British Colonies in the West Indies / Bryan Edwards
