Christopher Columbus landed on Trinidad during his third voyage, on 31st July, 1498. The island of the Arawaks and Caribs was then colonized by Spain. The indigenous population soon disappeared, and slaves from Africa were captured to replace them on the plantations. After successive raids by the Dutch and French, during the 17th century, the island fell to the British in 1797, and was finally ceded to them following the Treaty of Amiens, in 1802. Tobago was also ceded to Britain at the end of the Napoleonic Wars. After slavery was abolished in 1833, the British imported more than 150,000 Muslim and Hindu Indian guestworkers, between 1845 and 1917. Trinidad and Tobago became an independent state in the Commonwealth of Nations on August 31, 1962. In April 1970 Trinidad suffered serious rioting and a mutiny by part of the army. The state of emergency was finally ended in972.
