Barbados has experienced several waves of human habitation. The first wave were of the Saladoid-Barrancoid group, farmers, fishermen, and ceramists who arrived by canoe from Venezuela's Orinoco Valley around 350 AD. The Arawak people were the second wave, arriving from South America around 800 AD. Arawak settlements on the island include Stroud Point, Chandler Bay, Saint Luke's Gully, and Mapp's Cave. According to accounts by descendants of the aboriginal Arawak tribes on other local islands, the original name for Barbados was Ichirouganaim.

The name »Barbados« comes from a Portuguese explorer named Pedro Campos in 1536, who originally called the island Os Barbados (»The Bearded Ones«), after the appearance of the island's fig trees, whose long hanging aerial roots resembled beards.
