Taino Indians and Columbus At the time of the Columbus arrival in 1492, there were five Taino chiefdoms and territories on Hispaniola each led by a principal Cacique or chieftain, to whom tribute was paid. Ayiti or land of high mountains is the indigenous Taino name for the mountainous side of the island of Hispaniola, which has kept its name as it is used as the Haitian Creole form for Haiti.
