Ke hoʻomau nei ʻo Chiquita i ke awa nui ma Almirante ma Bocas del Toro.

I ka makahiki 1502, ua poino nui ko Christopher Columbus mau moku i ka ino ma ke kapakai o Amerika Waena. Pono kona mau ʻauwaʻa i ka hoʻomaha a me ka malu mai ke kai ākea e hoʻoponopono ai i nā waʻa. Ma ʻOkakopa 6, 1502, ua hele ʻo ia ma waena o kahi pūʻulu o nā mokupuni e kāʻei ana i ke kai Karipiano akaka. Ua heleuma ʻo ia ma Bocas del Toro.

I ka hoʻoponopono ʻana i nā waʻa, ua kapa ʻo Christopher Columbus i kekahi o kēia mau mokupuni, ʻo ia hoʻi ʻo Isla Colón (Columbus Island), home o Bocas Town, a me Isla Cristóbal (Christopher Island) kokoke. Hmm, manaʻo mākou he manaʻo koʻikoʻi kona. Ua manaʻo ʻia ʻo Columbus i ka loaʻa ʻana o kēia mau mokupuni ʻoiai ua noho ka poʻe ʻōiwi ma laila no nā kaukani makahiki.

ʻO Panama kahi ʻāpana o ka aupuni Sepania no kahi kokoke i 300 makahiki, mai 1538 a i 1821. I kēia manawa, ua hoʻouna ʻia ke kālā Inca a me ke gula mai ʻAmelika Hema a i Panama City, lawe ʻia ma ka ʻāina a hiki i ka ʻaoʻao Caribbean, a hoʻouka ʻia ma nā ʻauwaʻa o nā moku waiwai. holo no Sepania. ʻO ia ka mea i lilo ai ʻo Bocas del Toro i puʻuhonua kūpono no nā pōā i nā makahiki 1600 a me 1700. Hoʻouka pinepine kēia mau mea hoʻouka kaua i nā kaʻa kaʻa waiwai a me nā moku e holo ana i Sepania.

Hoʻomaka wikiwiki i 200 mau makahiki a hiki i 1899 i ka wā i hoʻokumu ai ʻo United Fruit Company, ka mea ma hope i lilo ʻo Chiquita Banana, ma Bocas Town. I kēia manawa, ʻo Bocas del Toro ka moopuna o ke aupuni ʻo Chiquita. ʻO ka mahiʻai maiʻa ma ka ʻāina nui ke lawelawe nei ma ke ʻano he mea hana nui loa ma ka ʻāina, e ulu ana a hoʻokuʻu aku i 750,000 tons maiʻa i kēlā me kēia makahiki.

Paʻa ke kaona ʻo Bocas i ka puʻuwai o ka hana ma ka hui o nā mokupuni, kahi e hana ai nā waʻa panga kala ma ke ʻano he "kaʻa" a ʻo nā ala wai ma waena o nā mokupuni he "alanui." Ma ke kaona ʻo Bocas, ʻike ka poʻe mākaʻikaʻi i nā kaʻa kaʻa ma mua o nā kaʻa, e hoʻohui ana i ka nani kūloko i ke kikowaena kūlanakauhale ikaika.
