Annotation The Native Americans who lived in the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean islands were the Tainos, gentle people who peacefully greeted Columbus when he landed in the Bahamas in 1492. The Tainos, who believed that their white visitors were gods, opened their homes and villages to the explorers, who were only trying to find gold. This led to the virtual destruction of the Tainos.
