History

Guyanaball, Suriname-icon.png Surinameball and French Guyana-icon.png French Guyanaball were born as a 3-icon.png 3ball, adopted respectively by UK-icon.png UKball, Dutch Empire-icon.png United Kingdom of the Netherlandsball and France-icon.png Franceball during XIX century, that were known by being called "The Guianas".

There are nine indigenous tribes residing in Guyanaball: the Wai Wai, Machushi, Patamona, Arawak, Carib, Wapishana, Arecuna, Akawaio, and Warrau. Historically the Arawak and Carib tribes dominated Guyanaball. Although Christopher Columbus sighted Guyanaball during his third voyage (in 1498), the Dutch-icon.png Dutch were the first to establish colonies: Essequiboball (1616), Berbiceball (1627), and Demeraraball (1752). After the UK-icon.png British assumed control in 1796, the Dutch-icon.png Dutch formally ceded the area in 1814. In 1831 the three separate colonies became a single UK-icon.png British colony known as British Guyanaball.

Since Independence in 1824, Venezuela-icon.png Venezuelaball has claimed the area of land to the west of the Essequibo River. Simón Bolívar wrote to the UK-icon.png British government warning against the Berbiceball and Demeraraball settlers settling on land which the Venezuela-icon.pngVenezuelans, as assumed heirs of Spanish-Empire-icon.png Spanish claims on the area dating to the sixteenth century, claimed was theirs. In 1899 an international tribunal ruled the land belonged to UK-icon.png Great Britainball. The border disputes persist and no final settlement has been reached.

Guyanaball achieved independence from the UK-icon.png UKball on 26 May 1966 and became a republic on 23 February 1970, remaining a member of the English-icon.png Commonwealth. USA-icon.png The US State Department and the USA-icon.png US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), along with the UK-icon.png British government, played a strong role in influencing political control in Guyanaball during this time. The USA-icon.png American government supported Forbes Burnham during the early years of independence because Cheddi Jagan was identified as a Marxist. They provided secret financial support and political campaign advice to Burnham's People's National Congress, to the detriment of the Jagan-led People's Progressive Party, which was mostly supported by Guyanese of East Indian background.

In 1978, Guyanaball received international notice when 918 members of the American cult, Peoples Temple, died in a mass murder-suicide. Most of the suicides were American and more than 300 children were killed; the people were members of a group led by Jim Jones in Jonestown, the settlement which they had created. Jim Jones's bodyguards had earlier attacked people taking off at a small remote airstrip close to Jonestown, killing five people, including Leo Ryan, the only US congressman ever assassinated in the line of duty.
