The chiefdoms of Hispaniola (Haiti & Dominican Republic) delineated the island of Hispaniola (Quisqueya “Ayiti” or “Bohio” in Taíno) into five independent territories at the time of their discovery by the Spaniards in 1492. Each was governed by a cacique who held absolute power over their people. The Taíno inhabitants were of Arawak origin and were the first people to greet the Spanish.
