St. Lucia
The earliest known St. Lucians were the Arawak Indians who were eventually supplanted by the Caribs. Of course, they did not call the island St. Lucia; to them it was "Iouanalao" and "Hewanorra," meaning "Island of the Iguanas."

The British and French battled repeatedly for the island over a span of more than 100 years. Eventually, the British prevailed. In fact St. Lucia has been independent within the British Commonwealth only since 1979. The early touch of the French is still evident, however, in the St. Lucian Creole.
