Describes the ethnic makeup and traditional models of culture origins of Caribbean natives before 1492. Suggests that archaeology and linguistics show that the islands were most recently populated in three migrations of a single group. Argues that frontiers were within rather than between large islands because of the seafaring nature of the Arawak speakers. (DK)
