Climate and Culture of The Bahamas

The Bahamas were inhabited by the Lucayan people before colonization, noted as being the very first indigenous people encountered by Christopher Columbus. The name “Bahamas” originates from the Lucayan word meaning “large upper middle island.” Many people in the Caribbean can trace their heritage back to Lucayan and Taino heritage through mitochondrial DNA.

In 1718, The Bahamas became a British colony, and thousands of American loyalists were relocated there years later after the revolutionary war. Bringing enslaved peoples with them, these loyalists established plantations. When Britain abolished the slave trade in 1807, The Bahamas became a haven for freed slaves, with many of those freed from illegal slave ships then being settled in the archipelago. The Bahamas are one of the wealthiest independent countries in the Americas, following the U.S. and Canada in GDP.

The country has just over 400,000 residents spread across 30 islands, with Nassau being the capital and hub of the nation with about 70% of the total population. The language spoken by native Bahamians is Bahamainian Creole. This country has a parliament and a monarch as many other British-colonized countries do, and recognize Charles III as king.

The Bahamas’ tropical location and absence of winter make it a desirable destination for many people. Its proximity to the equator and warm gulf stream result in a minor 13-degree Fahrenheit temperature difference between summer and winter. The rainy season occurs during summers, as is typical in other tropical climates. Although occasional winter storms may push temperatures down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, freezing temperatures have never been recorded. Snowfall is an extremely rare occurrence, with only one instance of mixed snow and rain reported in 1977 at Freeport. With over 340 days of sunshine annually, residents can enjoy an abundance of Vitamin D.

The culture of The Bahamas is primarily a mix of African, British, and American although it has become a melting-pot of cultures with residents from all over the globe taking advantage of the country’s many appealing benefits and tropical lifestyle. The majority of Bahamians are Christian. Street parades called Junkanoo with bright costumes, music, cow bells, and dancing are held on various dates like New Year’s and Boxing Day. Regattas are held frequently, with a day’s sail on a wooden boat accompanied by an onshore celebration. Bahamian food is delicious, incorporating Caribbean, African, and European influences. Different areas of The Bahamas have celebrations that surround the harvest of that area’s crops, like Pineapple Fest, or Crab Fest.

Storytelling, poetry, and literature are strong traditions in The Bahamas, along with folklore and legend. Mythical creatures such as the Chickcharney and the Lusca pepper tales, as well as the lost city of Atlantis, are referenced often.
