Cuba , Central America


On October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus claimed the island for Spain,and named it Isla Juana for Prince Juan.The island had been inhabited by Native American peoples known as the Taíno and Ciboney whose ancestors had come from South and possibly North and Central America at least several and perhaps 60 to 80 centuries before.The Taíno were farmers and the Ciboney were farmers and hunter-gatherers; some have suggested that copper trade was significant and mainland artifacts[78] have been found./Wikipedia/
