Alternative Names

West Indian Americans are also known as English-speaking Caribbean immigrants, and West Indians. While the title of this article refers to "West Indian Americans," immigrants from the Anglophone Caribbean have numerous ways of identifying themselves that vary based on factors including personal preference, class, ethnicity, whether one is a first- or second-generation immigrant, country of origin, and immediate social context. For example, a Jamaican immigrant might identify herself as "Jamaican" in the company of other West Indians. While in the company of Americans, however, the same individual might simply say that she is "West Indian." Alternatively, a second-generation West Indian whose parents migrated from the region might choose to identify himself simultaneously as West Indian and American, or might use the term "West Indian American."
