Carib is a tribe which has a single province in northern South America. It’s the primary nation of the Carib culture. Carib has no direct neighbours. Flag of Arawak Arawak, its historical rival, is located two provinces to the east.



This is a list of all   Carib's events (from /Europa Universalis IV/events/flavorCAB.txt).


 The Orinoco Trade

The trade along the Orinoco river has proven immensely valuable to our people and protecting our interests in this area will be vital to our future prosperity. There is some disagreement among the warriors and traders of our tribe on how to best control the river. The former would strike at any hostile tribe who tries to move into the area, while the traders feel it is much more important to convince any such foreign tribe to come to us and trade on our terms.

Trigger conditions

This country:

  • is   Carib
  • owns Orinoco Delta (2803), Uyapari (2805), Zaraza (2939), Angostura (742), Atabapo (2811), Llanos (2809) or Apure (2810).

This event can fire only once.

Mean time to happen

120 months

The Orinoco belongs to the Caribs

  Carib gets a claim on Orinoco Delta (2803), Uyapari (2805), Zaraza (2939), Angostura (742), Atabapo (2811), Llanos (2809) and Apure (2810) if the province is not a claim of Carib.

Focus our energy on creating a trade centre here.


  • loses  100 diplomatic power.

A random Carib province out of Orinoco Delta (2803), Uyapari (2805), Zaraza (2939), Angostura (742), Atabapo (2811), Llanos (2809) and Apure (2810):

  • gets the modifier “Hub of the Orinoco Trade” for the rest of the campaign, giving the following effects:
    •  +10 Local trade power

 Refugees From the North

Centuries ago many of our ancestors left the mainland in order to settle the islands of the Caribbean. As these islands have now increasingly come to be dominated by European powers our northern brethren have become more and more marginalized on their islands. Recently tensions have culminated in a bloody conflict between the plantation owners and the island Caribs and as a result there is now an increasing stream of Carib refugees seeking to settle in our lands. These Caribs have been away from the mainland for generations and have intermarried with the population of the islands and no longer speak the same language as we do.

Trigger conditions

This country:

At least 1 of the provinces St. Vincent (500), Barbados (501), St. Lucia (499), Martinique (498), Dominica (497), Guadelupe (496) or Antigua (496):

The year is at least 1580.
This event can fire only once.

2 random Carib provinces in the ‘Colonial Colombia’:

 Arawak settle the mouth of the Orinoco

The mouth of the Orinoco river has been occupied by the Arawak. Carib traders report being attacked by the Arawaks who want to control the area for themselves.

  • has an opinion of less than 50 towards Carib.

This event can fire only once.

Mean time to happen
