On the morning of October 12, 1492, a group of Tainos discovered Christopher Columbus and a landing party from his flagship the Santa Maria on a beach of Guanahani. Russell Thornton, author of American Indian Holocaust and Survival: A Population History Since 1492, calls it quite justifiably, "one of the more important demographic events in the history of the world." Thornton, whose book was published by the University of Oklahoma Press in 1987, estimates that "there were 72 million Native Peoples in the Western Hemisphere in 1492." He notes as well, "this number plummeted in following centuries to perhaps 4 to 4.5 million ? a population about 6% of its former size. That American Indians exist today and have shown recent population increases is a testament to perseverance over a dark period of history."
