17 The history of St. Kitts and Nevis starts in 1493 when Christopher Columbus discovered the two island and they were inhabited with Carib people. Today, most of the inhabitants are the descendants of African slaves. The British settled on St. Kitts— formerly St. Christopher—in 1623, and on Nevis in 1628. The French settled on St. Kitts in 1627, and an Anglo-French rivalry lasted for more than 100 years. After a decisive British victory over the French at Brimstone Hill in 1782, the islands came under permanent British control. The islands, along with nearby Anguilla, were united in 1882. They joined the West Idissolution1962. St. Kitts–Nevis- Anguilla became an associated state of the United

18 History 2 Kingdom in 1967. Anguilla seceded in 1980, and St. Kitts and Nevis gained independence on Sept. 19, 1983. A drop in world sugar prices hurt the nation's economy through the mid-1980s, and the government sought to reduce the islands' dependence on sugar production and to diversify the economy, promoting tourism and financial services. In 1990, the prime minister of Nevis announced that he intended to seek an end to the federation with St. Kitts by 1992, but a local election in June 1992 postponed the idea. In Aug. 1998, 62% of the population voted for Nevis to secede, but the vote fell short of the two-thirds majority required. The country had been blacklisted by various international financial agencies for improprieties in its off-shore financial-services industry, but by 2002, it had been removed from all such lists. On January 1, 2013, Sir Cuthbert Sebastian retired from his post of governor- general, a post he had held since 1996. Sebastian was replaced by Sir Edmund Lawrence, the managing director of the St. Kitts-Nevis Anguilla National Bank. Later that month, the Concerned Citizens Movement beat the ruling Nevis Reformation Party in the election. Vance Amory, founder of the Concerned Citizens Movement party, was sworn in as prime minister on January 23, 2013. Amory previously served as prime minister from 1992 to 2006.
