The Black Carib Wars

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the relationship between the Black Caribs and the French from 1779–83. During this period the Black Caribs, despite intermittent hostility from the local French authority, had been largely left to run their own affairs. They not only retained possession of their lands but also regained effective control of territory lost under the 1773 treaty. However, diplomatic deals struck half a world away forced the Black Caribs to share their island with a British governor and a planter class casting avaricious eyes on their land.

Keywords:   St. Vincent, French authority, Black Caribs
