Science and Perspective. There were few land animals available in the Bahamas for hunting: hutias Taino utia , rock iguanas , small lizards , land crabs and birds. While Tainos kept dogs and Muscovy ducks , only dogs were reported by early observers, or found at Lucayan sites.

Less than twelve percent of the meat eaten by Lucayans came from land animals, of which three-quarters came from iguanas and land crabs. Sea turtles and marine mammals West Indian monk seal and porpoise provided a very small portion of the meat in the Lucayan diet. The balance of dietary meat came from marine mollusks.

  6. The Lucayans grew cotton Gossypium barbadense and tobacco , and used other plants including agave , furcraea and hibiscus for fiber in fishing nets. Although Columbus did not see tobacco in use by the Lucayans, he did note that they traded a type of leaf that they regarded as valuable. Bixa was used to produce a reddish body paint and jagua Genipa or Mamoncillo for black body paint. The Lucayans carved canoes, spears, bowls and ceremonial stools from wood. Stone chopping, cutting and scraping tools were imported from Cuba or Haiti.

    This was produced in the islands using local red clay soils tempered with burnt conch shells. Palmetto Ware pottery was usually undecorated. There are no known differences that can be used to date or sequence Palmetto Ware pottery. The Lucayans made fish hooks from bone or shell and harpoon points from bone. The Lucayans probably did not use bows and arrows. One of the few artifacts of Lucayan life that has been found in a variety of areas in the Bahama archipelago is the duho.

    Duhos are carved seats found in the houses of Taino caciques or chiefs throughout the Caribbean region. In Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain with three ships, seeking a direct route to Asia. On October 12, Columbus reached an island in the Bahamas, an event long regarded as the 'discovery' of America. The identity of the first American landfall by Columbus remains controversial, but many authors accept Samuel E. The former Watling Island was officially renamed San Salvador in Columbus visited several other islands in the Bahamas hunting for gold before sailing on to Cuba.

    Lucayans on San Salvador had told Columbus that he could find a "king" who had a lot of gold at the village of Samaot also spelled Samoet , Saomete or Saometo. Taino chiefs and villages often shared a name. Keegan suggests that the confusion of spellings was due to grammatically differing forms of the name for the chief and for the village or island, or was simply due to Columbus's difficulty with the Lucayan language.

    Columbus spent three days sailing back and forth along the shore of an island seeking Samaot. At one point he sought to reach Samaot by sailing eastward, but the water was too shallow, and he felt that sailing around the island was "a very long way". Amerigo Vespucci spent almost four months in the Bahamas in to His log of that time is vague, perhaps because he was trespassing on Columbus's discoveries which at the time remained under Columbus's monopoly.

    There may have been other unrecorded Spanish incursions into the Bahamas, shipwrecks and slaving expeditions. Maps published between and appear to show details of the Bahamas, Cuba and the North American mainland that were not officially reported until later. Such finds, however, do not prove that Spaniards visited those islands, as trade among Lucayans could have distributed the artifacts.

    The Bahamas held little interest to the Spanish other than the Lucayans.

    Lucayan people

    Two managed to escape, but Columbus took some back to Spain at the end of his first voyage. Vespucci took Lucayans to Spain as slaves in Spanish exploitation of the labor of the natives of Hispaniola rapidly reduced that population, leading the Governor of Hispaniola to complain to the Spanish crown. In Ferdinand II of Aragon ordered that Indians be imported from nearby islands to make up the population losses in Hispaniola, and the Spanish began capturing Lucayans in the Bahamas for use as laborers in Hispaniola.

    Tallying the losses

    At first the Lucayans sold for no more than four gold pesos in Hispaniola, but when it was realized that the Lucayans were practiced at diving for conches , the price rose to to gold pesos and the Lucayans were sent to the Isle of Cubagua as pearl divers. Within two years the southern Bahamas were largely depopulated. The Spanish may have carried away as many as 40, Lucayans by Carl O. Thereafter the Bahamas remained uninhabited for years.
