History of Vanuatu - New Hebrides

The history of Vanuatu follows a course similar to many of the islands in the region.

A Portuguese explorer, Pedro de Queiros, sights them in 1606.

French navigator Louis Antoine de Bougainville sails around in 1768 and then along comes Captain James Cook, in 1774, thinking that the New Hebrides would be a fitting name for them.

The British and French jointly administer the islands; the Americans set up a base during World War II; and the New Hebrides finally becomes independent, as Vanuatu, on July 30th, 1980.
