History of Salinas
When the Spanish colonists reached the Salinas coastline in 1493, the region was inhabited by Taino indians. The river and large deposits of salt were named in honor of the "cacique" (indian chief) Abey. The war between the Tainos and the Spaniards in 1511 led Abey and other 15 caciques to new settlements in Dominican Republic. The new inhabitants of Salinas in the 16th century developed the agriculture, fish and salt industries.
