Before the arrival of the Spanish, Cuba was inhabited by three distinct tribes of indigenous peoples of the Americas.
In 1511, the first Spanish settlement was founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar at Baracoa.
It is a multiethnic country whose people, culture and customs derive from diverse origins, including the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples, the long period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves, and a close relationship with the Soviet Union in the Cold War.
Cuba is a founding member of the UN, G77, NAM, ACP, ALBA, and OAS.
The British arrived on 6 June, and by August had Havana under siege.
When Havana surrendered, the admiral of the British fleet, George Keppel, the 3rd Earl of Albemarle, entered the city as a conquering new governor and took control of the whole western part of the island.A point of contention during the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States, a nuclear war nearly broke out during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
