“We all know that before Africans were brought to Haiti (or St. Domingue as it was called then), there lived a nations of people. Do you know who they were? They were known as the Arawaks and the Caribs. In those days, Haiti and the modern-day Dominican Republic were divided into five tribes, or kingdoms if you will: the Marien (Guacanagaric), the Magua (presided over by Chief Guarionex), Maguana (ruled by Chief Caonabo), Xaragua (presided by Chief Bohechio), and Hyguey (presided over by Chief Cotubanama) .”
