A Caribbean person or West Indian is a native or inhabitant of the Caribbean region or a person of Caribbean descent. The Caribbean region was the original home of the Amerindians from the Carib and Arawak groups. These groups were decimated by a combination of overwork and disease brought by European colonizers.
