Looking for a career opportunity in the Bahamas? The history of the Bahamas begins with the earliest arrival of people to the island in the 1st millennium AD. The inhabitants were Lucayans, Arawakan speaking Taino people. The Bahamas became a colony of Britain in 1718 and around the turn of 19th century, with a little help from the government, businesspeople built hotels and established a steamship service.
