Remarks on the anthropological basic research of Indians of Christopher Columbus (of the first and second journeys). Overview and material substrate
##This is the first part of a paper mainly dealing with the material substance of the Caribbean Taíno and Calino cultures around 1500 AD with plenty of information based on research conclusions in historical, ethnological, archaeological, sociological and economic sciences. Primarily there is the native Caribbean in contrast to the European world, i.e. the Spaniards with the Genuese Christopher Columbus in the center and his conquering successors ending in the first American holocaust. When archaeological results in Caribbean diggings cannot be helpful getting insight into cultural background anymore, ethnological analogies in South American, especially Amazonian and Guinean recent tribal life must bring support. After years of serious research all this and beyond with new insights and some revisions of preceding ethnohistorical accounts is realized by the author who is a museal ethnologist with archaeological background and a doctor"s degree in social and economic sciences. With its comprehensive information this article will be a first step in the new German ethnoarchaeological Caribbean studies.##
