As the first people ever to inhabit The Bahamas, The Lucayans were descendants of the Arawaks who lived and prospered along the shores of the country for generations before being captured as slaves shortly after Columbus’ arrival. In fact, the stretch of islands in the western Atlantic was not only called The Bahamas historically – there were references to it as the Lucayan Archipelago...
