Before the arrival of the Europeans in 1493, St. Kitts was called “Liamuiga” by the Kalinago people (The Caribs) who migrated to the island from south America. They forced out the previous occupants, the Arawaks, who moved to other islands in the north. Today, petroglyphs serve as a reminder of the islands’ first inhabitants, the Caribs and Arawaks.
