ARUBA HAD BEEN SETTLED BY THE CAQUETIOS AMERINDS AS EARLY AS 1,000 AD. VESPUCCI BOASTED OF DISCOVERING THE ISLAND BUT WAS PROBABLY SHOWN THE LOCALE BY NATIVE GUIDES FROM NEIGHBORING ISLANDS, AND DESCRIBED ARUBA AND ITS INHABITANTS AND ISLAND OF GIANTS. OJEDA CALLED THE ISLAND ORO HUBO (IT HAD GOLD). VESPUCCI BROUGHT COTTON AND BRAZILWOOD BACK TO SPAIN FROM ARUBA AND THE SPANISH COLONIZED THE ISLAND SOON AFTER. GOLD WASN'T DISCOVERED ON THE ISLAND FOR ANOTHER 300 YEARS, OJEDA BEING APPOINTED THE FIRST GOVERNOR IN 1508. ARUBA HAS BEEN UNDER DUTCH REGULATION SINCE 1629 AND ADMINISTERED BY THE NETHERLANDS FROM 1636.
