    The Arawakan-speaking Taínos moved into Hispaniola, displacing earlier inhabitants, c. AD 650. Taínos inhabited what is now the Dominican Republic since the 7th century. The fierce Caribs drove the Taínos to the northeastern Caribbean during much of the 15th century. Today, Dominican Republic has the second largest economy in the Caribbean and Central American region.
