Wow who was the idiot. The Dominican race always existed. They were Tainos. Before Cristobal Colon or as he's known in the USA Christopher Columbus. Settle in the Island making it the Isla De Hispaniola. He settle on the Island before reaching the USA. He brought with him boats filled with African slaves. A lot of the Tainos were assassinated by the Spaniards. Those who survived were mad slaves too. It took 200 before the french step foot on the island. By this time Dominicans were already mixed. Spaniard,Taino and African mixed. Till this Day the majority are African, Taino and Spaniard descent. Mostly African and Taino.. Haitians did not come into contact with Dominicans until the Spanish notice they were on the west part of the Island 200 years later. The Haitians who are really Africans were being sold by the french as slaves. Spain and The french went to war 3 times, the last time the French Controlled Haitians took control of The Dominican Republic for 22 years. I'm Dominican.

Where is the Dominican Republic?

the Dominican Republic is in the Caribbean.

The country denominated Dominican Republic is located in the Island of Santo Domingo, according to her constitution. This island, which Haiti claims in her own constitution as the Island of Haiti, is regarded (because of this conflict about the name by the two countries-owners- sharing its territory) as the Island of Hispaniola since 1939, by what is known today as the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Geographer of the United States of America.

Most publications in the world follow that agency, for the same reason such agency decided to utilize "Hispaniola", that is, not to be offensive to neither of the countries occupying the island, instead of opening dialogues with these two countries to solve this confusing dilemma.

Students from the Dominican Republic, other countries and organizations learned that the name of the island is Santo Domingo or in French, Saint Domingue.

Student from Haiti, other countries and organizations learned that the name of the island is Haiti.

Until Haiti and the Dominican Republic settles this case, any name that is utilize may be acceptable, but should not be regarded as the legal and official name of the island.

it is located in the northern hemisphere. It is also located on the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola. It is located in the Caribbean Sea.
