    The original inhabitants of Curaçao were Arawak Amerindians. The name “Curaçao” has become associated with a shade of blue, because of the deep-blue version of the liqueur named Curaçao (also known as Blue Curaçao). Today, locally, the island is known as “Dushi Korsou” (Sweet Curaçao). Curaçao is the largest and most populous of the three ABC islands (for ArubaBonaire, and Curaçao).
