The Black Carib Wars

Christopher Taylor

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter describes the British attempts to force the surrender of the Caribs, which involved displacing the Caribs into the mountainous interior and destroying their canoes and provisions in order to starve them into submission. Defeated and starving, the Caribs were brought to the tiny island of Baliceaux, some five miles south of Bequia. At first, when only a few hundred were confined on Baliceaux, no problems were reported. But as more and more Caribs were crammed into this confined space, people started falling sick and, in short order, dying.
