    Ichirouganaim (Barbados) was originally inhabited by Arawaks then later Caribs before European colonisation of the Americas. When the Portuguese/Spanish arrived on the island in the 1500's it was said to be uninhabited and full of bearded fig trees and they did not settle, but called the island Los Barbudos, hence 'Barbados' The history of the Barbados known today, started when the British arrived in 1625. This would herald a period of great prosperity and wealth for the British state through the exploitation of enslaved Africans and indentured servants. Some 339 years later Barbados gained Independence from Britain on November 1966. The years in between are a juxtaposition mash of misery, pain, sacrifice, obedience, emancipation, devotion, wealth, politics, strength, rebellion and perseverance. Many Barbadians view independence as a proud achievement especially for such a small island, while some view this as pseudo independence. There were several objectives for starting this project the main reason was to commemorate the 50th year of independence. This prompted some reflection on the concept of independence which led to questions such as: What type of independence does Barbados
