What Was The Name Of The Tribe Columbus Came In Contact With?

Christopher Columbus encountered the Taino people when he arrived on the island of Guanahani (now known as San Salvador) in the Bahamas in the year 1492. In his writings, Columbus characterized the Taino as being ″bare as the day they were born.″ The Taino people possessed religious, political, and social structures that were very hierarchical and complicated.
