A Carib / Arawak etching on a beach on the West coast of Grenada.

Caribs and Arawaks were the indigenous people of the West Indes.  They were eventually driven out of Grenada by French colonists, who had them surrounded and outnumbered.  The last Caribs/Arawaks remaining on the island committed mass suicide by jumping off a cliff at the northern most point of the island, now called “Sauteurs”.  There is a monument to them there.
