Turks and Caicos, a rich cultural history.

Many years before Christopher Columbus discovered the capital island of Grand Turk, The Turks and Caicos Islands were inhabited by the Taino and Lucayan Indians. These indigenous tribes left behind a rich heritage of sea faring salt raking, and farming, which is still visible today. The name Turks originates from the Turks Head Cactus, found here, and Caicos comes from the Lucayan term meaning ‘string of islands’.

For almost 700 years the Taino’s and the Lucayans were the sole inhabitants of the islands, until Columbus arrived in 1492, shortly after the Lucayan population disappeared. During this time, the salt industry was born and Bermudians came to collect the salt as it was a precious commodity for flavouring and preserving food. In 1706 the French and the Spanish briefly captured the islands from the Bermudians. Four years later the British reclaimed the islands for Bermuda.

In 1766 the Turks and Caicos Islands became a part of the Bahamas colony, this union subsequently failed. In 1874 after the Great Bahamas Hurricane devastated most of the islands they became dependencies on the British Crown Colony of Jamaica. Jamaica achieved independence from Britain in 1962, leaving the islands a British Crown Colony alone, as it still is today.

It was not until the opening of Club Med Turkoise Resort in the early 1980’s, that they became a viable tourist destination. Today through continuing development, the islands have become one of the world’s premier beach destinations. The Turks and Caicos Islands now boast the fastest growing economy in the Caribbean, but with strict development controls to protect the environment.
