    Saint Kitts was named “Liamuiga” by the Kalinago Indians who inhabited the island. This name, roughly translated, in English means “fertile land,” a testimony to the island’s rich volcanic soil and high productivity. Nevis‘s pre-Columbian name was “Oualie,” which translates to “land of beautiful waters,” presumably referring to the island’s many freshwater springs and hot volcanic springs. Five thousand years prior to European arrival, the island was settled by Native Americans.
