The first people to inhabit the Dominican Republic were small groups of fishermen, hunters and gatherer (simple Stone-Age people) who arrived via canoe sometime between 5,000 BC and 4,000 BC, fully 5,500 to 6,500 years before the arrival of Europeans. There are now Currently 8,715,602 people living in the Dominican Republic.
The Indians who arrived brought with them a knowledge of ceramics, semi-sedentary agriculture based on maize and yucca, a religion based on zemí worship (ancestor spirit-guides and mythical gods represented on earth by artistic symbols and objects of the same name), and ceremonies that included community-wide dancing/singing festivals called areitos and soccer-like ball games called bateyes.
The Taínos were not only in the Dominican republic, but in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Venezuela, and other caribbean islands. They taught the civilizations which they were at many new things. They helped advance the civilizations and make them grow. "Dios no creó a la mujer de la cabeza Del hombre, para que recibiera ordenes... Ni tampoco de sus pies, para que fuera su esclava... Si no de su costado, para que esté siempre cerca de su corazón." When there is Faith, there is Peace. When there is Peace, there is Love. When there is Love, there is GOD. When there is GOD, there is no need Song of the Taínos
When the dominican republic was first found, the People there would get real sick and many of them Died because of illnesses caused by being there. Later on Bartolomé landed there was clean water, good soil to grow food, and gold,But because of what happened previous no one would go there To name it so it was named “Santo Domingo de Guzmán. The first major battle over the Dominican Republic was the European-Indian battle at Santo Cerro. It was a massive battle that took place in 1495 after Bartolomé Colón had led Spanish troops against the Taínos of the Cibao for 10 long months. The first sign of the break of a European-Indian treaty was when there was a massacre in 1504 at Cacica Anacaona’s where Europeans killed hundreds of men, women, and children. As a result the first systematic exploitation and enslavement of both Indians and Africans in the New World under Spain’s encomienda and slave laws. This slavery and bad treatment led to a rebellion in 1519 that lasts until 1533. The rebellion led Colón to announce the New World’s slave-control ordinance on January 6, 1522.
Brave men of Quisqueya, Let us sing with strong feeling, And let us show with pride to the world Our invincible, glorious banner. Hail, O people who, intrepid and strong, Launched into war and went to death, Under a warlike menace of death You broke your chains of slavery. No nation deserves to be free If it is an indolent and servile slave; If in it's nature the flame doesn't grow The virile heroïsm will be tempered. But Quisqueya indomitable and brave Will always hold its head high; Even if it were a thousand times enslaved Every time it would regain freedom. If it will be exposed to ruse and deceit Unto contempt of a real imposer, On to Las Carreras! Beler!...it were places Where the traces of glory are found. Where on the top of the heroic bastion, The word of the libarated became flesh, Where the genius of Sánchez and Duarte (*3) Teached to be free or to die. And if an unattended leader the splendor Of these glorious events could ignore, One has seen in Capotillo ( in the war The flag of fire wave. And the fire that lets the proud lion Of Castilla become stupefied, Removes him from the glorious beaches Where the crossed banner waves. Compatriots, let us proudly Show our face, from today prouder than ever; Quisqueya may be destroyed But a slave again, never! It is a sanctuary of love that every character Of the fatherland feels alive! And it is his coat of arms, the right; And it is his device: be free or die. Freedom that still rises cool-bloodedly The victory in her triumphal car. And the clarion of war re-echoes Proclaiming his immortal glory. Freedom! That the echo's touch While they're full of noble tension Our fields of glory repeat Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
