    Aruba - Culture The westernmost of the Caribbean islands, Aruba lies just 18 miles off the coast of Venezuela and 42 miles west of Curacao. The island covers an area of 70 square miles, 20 miles at its longest and 6 miles at its widest. Approximately 81,000 people reside here full time, and more than 540,000 visit during the course of a year. The southern, leeward side of the island is famous for its long stretches of powdery white sand beach, while the northern coast features a rugged and dramatic landscape and secluded coves ideal for swimming. Arubans are gymnastic linguists, many of them speaking four languages: Dutch, English, Spanish and Papiamento, sometimes in the same conversation. Papiamento is a melodious language derived from every culture that has impacted on the region, including traces of Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French and local Indian languages. It's spoken throughout the Netherlands Antilles but is more Spanish-based on Aruba, an indication of the island's closer ties with the South American mainland. Making an effort to use a few Papiamento words will delight your Aruban hosts. Bon bini (welcome) is the first Papiamento you'll come across. Another word you'll hear is dushi, which means sweet or lovely; women will hear it more than men. The Arawak heritage is stronger on Aruba than on most Caribbean islands, though the indigenous language and culture did not last long into the 19th century. No full-blooded Indians remain, but the features of the islanders clearly indicate their genetic heritage. The majority of the population is descended from Arawak, Dutch and Spanish ancestors. Arawak petroglyphs can be seen in several parts of the island, including Fontein cave in the Arikok National Park, and an Indian village is still being excavated at Tanki Flip. Artefacts on view in Oranjestad's Archaeological Museum give clues to the customs of daily and ceremonial Arawak life: there are burial urns and a bone spatula thought to have been used as a vomiting stick to prepare men for ceremonies.

Please improve this article if you can. The talk page may contain suggestions. (May 2009) Aruba , one of the many islands that make up the Caribbean , was first discovered and claimed by the Spanish in 1499. Yet evidence and records show that the Spanish were definitely not the first people on the island. In fact, painted petrographs left behind on walls and the ceilings of caves to excavated ancient artifacts of the Arawaks have been found in Aruba. Precisely for this information, many do in fact believe that the Caiquetios, people's of the Arawak tribe that migrated north from the Orinoco Basin in South America , were the very first inhabitants of the island. Although the Spanish were in control of Aruba for many years, the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Netherlands soon gave the Dutch the upper hand. Finally in 1636 the Spanish handed over the island to the Dutch. Years later, the English took over Aruba for a brief period, but it quickly returned under Dutch rule in 1816 and remained that way until 1985, when Aruba became a separate entity within the kingdom of the Netherlands.

    Aruba Culture
    Aruba's fascinating culture can be traced back to its unique past
    One Happy People Aruba's culture is unique in the Caribbean because it is defined more by geography than by history. While other islands suffered from the squabbling of European nations, Aruba remained relatively unwanted because its desert land was not good for sugar production. This lack of plantation-style farming also kept Aruba relatively free from the African slave trade and the troubles it caused in other nations. Despite other slavery issues, Aruba was extremely peaceful, and this peace is certainly evident today.
    Arawak Heritage
    The island of Aruba, though originally settled by the Spanish, was quickly repossessed by the Dutch when the Spanish abandoned it after determining it was useless for cultivating cash crops. Because there was little use for slavery on the island, the Caiquetos, part of the Arawak nation of Native Americans native to the island, were shipped to the mines of Hispaniola. When gold was discovered on this seemingly-barren island, the Dutch brought back the Arawak slaves. Arawaks formed the majority of the slave class; as a result, there were few African slaves on Aruba. Ironically, this gives Aruba the distinction of having one of the longest lasting non-integrated Arawak tribes in the region, though there are no longer any full-blooded Arawaks on the island. The last pure Arawak lived until 1862, while most other Arawak tribes had been wiped out in the 1600s.

Remnants of their culture can still be found at a number of different sites around the island: pottery, earthenware, and other artefacts at the Archeological Museum in Oranjestad and at the Historical Museum of Aruba at Fort Zoutman and William III Tower; and cave drawings and petroglyphs in the Fontein and Guadiriki Caves and at Arikok National Park Bushiribana on the northeast coast, the ruins of an old pirate castle still remain standing.

Map of Aruba and Caribbean Visitor Tips Getting married on Aruba Aruba is among the most southern of the Lesser Antilles islands ( ABC islands Aruba Bonaire Curacao ) and is the farthest west of that group. It's a mere 15 miles (24 km) from the coast of Venezuela. On a clear day the Venezuelan mainland is visible from the south-eastern coast, and about 42 miles (67 km), or 20 minutes by airplane, to our nearest Caribbean neighbour, Curacao. The oblong island is fronted by heavy surf and a jagged coast on our northern, windward side and by seven miles (11 km) of honey-colored sand beaches on the southern leeward coast. It's some 75 square miles (193 km2) in area and measures about five miles (8 km) at it widest point and 19 miles (30 km) in length. Aruba is an easy island to get around, the road systems are in good shape, well-marked,and, let's face it, it's hard to get lost for too long on an island where the coast is never more than 3 miles away.

    CULTURE Aruba's 88,000 inhabitants reflect it's history of settlement, acquisition, and immigration. The native Aruban population has ethnic roots in Arawak, African, and European peoples, reflected in the local foods, architecture, celebrations, and languages, and you'll find a healthy mix of expatriates, about 10,000, from Europe, the Caribbean, and Latin America working in various industries on our island. Culturally, aruba has strong ties to Holland, it's colonial occupier and presen-day partner in the Netherlands kingdom. The official language of the island is Dutch, seen on street signs, government documents, and several local newspapers. English is spoken by most Arubans, particularly those in the tourism business. The island's lingua franca, however, is Papiamento, a lyrical language that envolved from Spanish and Portuguese, Dutch, some French, English, and a smattering of African languages. To the ear papaiamneto sounds a great deal like Spanish, and it's not surprising that Spanish-speaking visitors from Venezuela and other Latin American countries have little problem communicating on the island. The language is thought to have envolved in Curacao during the 16th century, when slaves and their Spanish owners developed common ground in which to communicate. Keeping in mind that spelling varies within the language, and among the islands that use it (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao).
