The Jesuits in Guyana
History of Guyana

"Guiana" is an indigenous word which means "land of many waters" and so it is fitting that the border of the north-east coastal strip of South America known as "The Guyanas" is defined by oceans and rivers: the Caribbean Sea marks the northern perimeter, the Atlantic Ocean the eastern edge, the Orinoco river in Venezuela is the western frontier while the mighty Amazon and the Rio Negro patrol the south. Waterways and massive rivers criss-cross the whole of the territory and define much of the life and personality of the land and its peoples.
