Amerindian were all over the Caribbean, North-, Latin America, and South America. That's why it's called America. The Caribbean got its name from the Caribs that lived there. In Latin -, North America and the Caribbean islands they could not really keep their cultures because they couldn't really fight of the whites but in Guyana and Suriname they could hide in the forest and keep theirs.
