History

Main article: Canary Islands in pre-colonial times

The islands were conquered by Castilians at the beginnings of the 15th century. In 1402, they subdued the native Guanche population and the Guanches were initially enslaved and gradually absorbed by the Spanish colonisers. After subsequent settlement by Spaniards and other other European peoples, mainly Portuguese, the remaining Guanches were gradually absorbed by the settlers and their culture was largely destroyed.

Ancestry

The inhabitants of the Canary Islands, hold a gene pool that is halfway between the Iberians and the ancient native population, the Guanches (a proto-berber population), although with a major Iberian contribution. Guanche genetic markers have also been found, at low frequencies, in peninsular Spain, probably as a result of slavery and/or later immigration from the Canary Islands[1]


Canarians abroad: the Isleño community

Main article: Isleños

Historically, the Canary Islands have been a connection point between Spain and the Americas, and therefore large groups of Canary islanders have emigrated and settled all over the New World as early as the 15th century, mainly in Chile, Venezuela, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Uruguay, as well as in parts of what today is the United States, such as Louisiana (former part of the Spanish Empire). For example, settlers from the Canary Islands founded San Antonio, Texas in 1731, when it was still part of the Empire (see Spanish Texas), one hundred years before the first Anglo-Saxon immigrants arrived to the region. Nowadays, these early settlers, still live in Louisiana and still speak the Canarian dialect [2] Islenos (from the Spanish isleños, plural of islander) are descendants of Canary Islanders who came to America and settled in the lower Mississippi River Delta of Louisiana between 1778 and 1783. ...
