Galibi

Galibi

[gah-lee-bee]
The Galibi were a Cariban-speaking people who lived in the Lesser Antilles and northern South America (French Guiana) at the time of European settlement. They are believed to have co-existed with the Island Caribs on the islands of Grenada and Tobago and may have also lived further up the islands. The Galibi are believed to have been a major trading link between the Island Caribs and mainland Cariban-speaking groups.

Some archaeologists believe that the Galibi were not distinct from the Island Caribs, but most believe that they were a distinct group.
