What is the History of Colombia?

The Republic of Columbia which is in South America near Venezuela and Brazil has a history that goes back to 10,000 BC. Pre-Columbia was inhabited with societies involved in trading with each other. During the early 1600’s, Spanish explorers started to invade that part of the world. The territory was taken over by the Spaniards and resulted in genocide of the people now known as Caribbeans. It was not until 1819 that the territory won its independence from Spain. You can find more information here:
