Cuba is known as the largest single island of the archipelago, the country of the West Indies, and one of the more influential states of the Caribbean region. Cuba was claimed by Christopher Columbus for Spain in 1492 and the domain of the Arawakan-speaking Taino, who had displaced even earlier inhabitants.  In the 18th century, it became the Spanish empire’s most-important source of raw sugar and later earned the sobriquet “Pearl of the Antilles.” It retained the rule of Cuba until 1898, though Spain had to fight several difficult and costly campaigns against independence movements when it was defeated by the United States and Cuban forces in the Spanish-American War. Though it remained overshadowed by the nearby United StatesCuba soon gained formal independence.

At the intersection of the Atlantic Ocean, Cuba is situated just south of the Tropic of Cancer, the Caribbean Sea (south) and the Gulf of Mexico (west). The nearest neighboring country Haiti is just 48 miles to the east, across the Windward Passage.  Jamaica is 87 miles to the south, the United States is about 90 miles to the north across the Straits of Florida and the Bahamas archipelago extends to within 50 miles of the northern coast. 

Among the original hunter-gatherer societies to inhabit Cuba by about 4000 BCE, The Guanahatabey and Ciboney peoples were the former living in the extreme west of the island.  With limited numbers in other places. Spanish is the principal language of Cuba, the latter mainly on the cays to the south. The island’s diverse ethnic groups have influenced speech patterns, although there are no local dialects. Somewhat nasal accent and rhythmic intonation that distinguish contemporary Cuban speech, Africans have greatly enriched the vocabulary and contributed to the soft, in particular. Approximately 20 percent of Cubans are nonreligious. The all out number of followers to Santería Cuba’s primary strict development is obscure yet may incorporate between one-half and seven-tenths of the populace.
