Who were the Lucayans? Rethinking early history of The Bahamas. It has long been assumed that the earliest people in The Bahamas were Arawaks who developed in the cultural tradition known as Taino. Recent research suggests that this assumption is wrong and that the native Lucayans were part of an earlier migration that began 6000 years ago in Cuba. If this is correct, the Lucayans represent a completely new culture. A culture whose roots can be found in the Ciboney of Cuba.
