 Haiti was “discovered” by Christopher Columbus in 1492.

Although it was already inhabited by a native tribe now known as Taino, when Christopher Columbus landed in Haiti, he called it ‘La Isla Espanola’ meaning The Spanish Isle. He was buried in the cathedral of Santa Maria in Haiti and today, a monument of Christopher Columbus stands in the country’s capital, Port-au-Prince. Though for centuries Columbus actions were acclaimed, history reveals him as a person who took advantage of many indigenous peoples. His arrival is generally revered as a very bad move.
