Possibly fishers and collectors had acquired the knowledge to make earthenware and thus developed simple forms. The first well made ceramic to arrive in the Antilles was probably between 500 and 0 BC. This ceramic style has been called Saladoide. From this style several kinds of changes appeared in the ceramic of the successors of the Saladoide people. One of them was called Ostionoid. On this photo we can see this simple form of Ostionoid style taken from La Hispaniola.
