Atmosphere of Virgin Islands British: religion and languages
As of today, the total population living on the territory of the British Virgin Islands comprises of more than 32,000 people. In view of the rather complicated history of the formation of this administrative unit as a state, the population of the Virgin Islands is heterogeneous. Initially, its territory was inhabited by Indians and they spoke the Indian language. After the discovery of the islands by Columbus, the power over their territories was seized by the Spaniards, and they gradually began to drive out the Indians from their native land. Eventually, it was the Spaniards who formed the main ethnic group on the islands and the Spanish language prevailed when it comes to linguistics. After part of the islands came under the jurisdiction of the United States of American, and some under the jurisdiction of Great Britain, Americans and Englishmen emerged on the islands. In view of this, English language gained large prevalence. The descendants of slaves brought from Africa also constitute a significant part of the modern population of the British Virgin Islands.
