Haiti History

The name Haiti comes from the Tano word Ayt, which means Mountainous Land"" and referred to the entire island later called Hispaniola. The French staked their claim on the entire island based on settlement of Tortuga and Gonve islands by French pirates in the 16th century. France officially incorporated the colony in the early 1600s. In 1697, with the signing of the Treaty of Ryswick with Spain, the French took the western third of the island, naming their colony Saint-Domingue. The Spanish kept control of Santo Domingo, the eastern two-thirds of the island. Following the revolution and Saint-Domingue's declaration of independence from France on 1 January, 1804, leader Jean-Jacques Dessalines, of African descent, restored the original Tano name of Haiti as an ode of honor to the Amerindian predecessors and as a demonstration of defiance against France."

The island of Hispaniola, of which Haiti occupies the western third, was originally inhabited by the Tano Arawaks, a seafaring branch of the South American Arawaks. Christopher Columbus landed at Mle Saint-Nicolas on 5 December 1492, and claimed the island for Spain. Nineteen days later, his ship the Santa Maria ran aground near the present site of Cap-Haitien; Columbus was forced to leave 39 men, founding the settlement of La Navidad. Ayti, which means mountainous land"

is a name used by the Tano-Arawak people

who also called some sections of it Bohio
