The territory that is now Cuba was inhabited by the Ciboney tribes in the 4th millennium BC and until the 15th century, it was inhabited by various Amerindian tribes. From the 15th century, it was a colony of Spain until the Spanish–American War of 1898, when Cuba gained nominal independence as a de facto United States protectorate in 1902.
