Abstract

Haiti occupies the western third of the large island of Hispaniola which was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492. Originally a Spanish colony, Haiti was ceded to France in the 17th century and became a prosperous colony with a considerable export of sugar and other produce. After the depopulation of the original Indian inhabitants the Spanish and later the French brought over large numbers of African slaves whose descendants now populate the country.
