• Are Arubans black or white?


  • No, Arubans arent black or white. Instead, theyre a mix of black and white. That mix and the Caribbean sun give them the look of a year round tan.Specifically, the modern day Aruban is a blend of over 40 nationalities in addition to the original Arawak inhabitants. The population is estimated to be 80 percent mixed Amerindian European ancestry and 20 percent other ethnicities. The first inhabitants were Arawak Indians who migrated from the Orinoco Basin in South America. Spanish explorer Alonso de Ojeda [c. 1466-1515] came across Aruba in 1499 while exploring nearby Venezuela.Spain was in control of the island until 1636, when the Dutch gained control. The United Kingdom occupied Aruba from 1799 to 1802 and again from 1805 to 1815. Aruba then returned to Dutch rule until the island gained autonomy on January 1, 1986.


  • The population is estimated to be 75% mixed European/Amerindian/African, 15% Black and 10% other ethnicities.
