Bartholomew Columbus

A History of Roatan

“very robust people who adore idols and live mostly from a certain white grain from which they make a fine bread and the most perfect beer.”- Bartholomew Columbus

Paya Indians

The first known inhabitants of the island were Paya Indians. Their pottery and small sculptures, called Yaba-ding-ding, are unearthed every day across the island. Little is known of these people but when Columbus discovered the Bay Islands in 1505 (his 4th voyage) his brother Bartholomew went ashore to meet them. There is some debate over whether he was the first European to set foot on the Bay Islands, but he does provide us with the first written record of the islands. He writes that the Paya Indians were a “very robust people who adore idols and live mostly from a certain white grain from which they make a fine bread and the most perfect beer.” And so, Bartholomew became the first ever tourist to share a few beers with the locals.
