Abstract:

The material culture of the Arawak Indians of Santo Domingo is South American in origin, and in a general way, in content. Pottery was brought to the islands and there developed into artistic forms not known in the pristine home of the island of Arawak. The use of slips and paints, like the shaping of divergent forms, was taking its beginning in southeastern Santo Domingo at the time of the discovery and conquest by Columbian forces.
