Two things come immediately to mind when thinking about Miami: Don Johnson’s pink shirts in “Miami Vice”, and the Cuban gangster milieu of “Scarface.” Factual information used to create such fictitional characters and situations may have been limited and basic, though ultimately real, such as Miami’s warm weather and pastel land and skyscapes, and the 80’s influx of cocaine from central America, combined with a huge wave of mostly uneducated Cuban refugees entering the US. But as with all people and places, there is so much more to Miami than any preconceived notions based on limited information gained through entertainment.
Miami’s early history started somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10,000 years ago with the early Native Americans who lived on the banks of the Miami River and used shells to create tools and weapons. For nearly a millenium prior to the arrival of the Spaniard Pedro Menendez de Aviles, the Tequesta people enjoyed the area’s balmy pastel climate that have made Florida’s beaches world famous. Menendez de Aviles didn’t stay there very long. He was actually just searching for his shipwrecked son. But word got back to Spain about the area and the Jesuits showed up only a year later and built a mission to begin their attempts to convert the native Tequestas. Within a few years, many of the natives tried to leave for Cuba because they didn’t want to be converted and were
dying from smallpox and other European diseases, but many of them died on the way there.
It wasn’t until 1842 that the village of Miami got its name, and 8 years later there were already 96 residents. Now there are 5,414,712 people living in the Miami area, with over 400,000 Cuban refugees. It is also ranked as the richest city in the US. Furthermore, Miami is a leading global city for finance, entertainment, fashion, art, commerce, and printed media, among other things.
