Excerpt from Prehistoric Culture of Cuba

Historians do not agree as to the first landfall of Columbus in Cuba, but no one doubts that it was somewhere on the northern shore of what is now Santiago province. At whatever point he landed, he found the natives living in houses, making use of ham mocks of cotton and palm fibers, and possessing stone idols and carved wooden masks. Columbus learned from them of a ruler, whom he called king, of a country to the south, which was rich in gold. Nothing is said in his diary of the natives to the west of the landfall, but he sailed westward a few leagues along the northern shore without finding people worthy of special mention. Later, turning back, he rounded Cape Maysi and examined a section of the southern coast, but was not attracted farther toward the west. Ou this side of Cuba he again heard of the wealth of the Indians of the south. The implication is that the maple of eastern Cuba knew the Haytians and recognized that their culture was superior to that of the western end of their own island. They held out no induce ment to Columbus to extend his explorations westward, as we might suspect they would have done had there been a superior race in that end of the island.
