“The Hardhat Forest”
2013. Occupied Lucayan Homelands.
Throwback to when I did hurricane and climate research in the Bahamas. This coconut jungle beside a pink sand beach was my favorite spot to photograph during the almost nonexistent free time. Careful though, random falling coconuts can make for a serious head injury.
The Bahamas has a unique history. The Lucayan Nation was the first to locate Columbus and his lost party back in 1492. Empathetic, the Lucayans of the easternmost islands provided aid to the Spaniards - who quickly turned against them, dragging young girls into sex slavery (Columbus’ own diaries state that 12-year old girls were in highest demand), feeding babies to dogs in ‘comedic’ terror campaigns, and by enslaving the entire population. By 1520, Columbus’ party only located 11 Lucayans across a nation of 700 islands. These survivors were forcibly relocated to the island that became known as Cuba, leaving the Lucayan Homelands vacant for over 100 years. These islands later became a place of refuge for African slaves escaping from European colonies across the Caribbean and southeast North America. Today, the Bahamian population predominantly descends from these survivors. Descendants of the Lucayan Nation remain in the Caribbean, absorbed into the Taíno Nation. 🌴🥥🌴
Fascinating way to learn the history of the first English settlers in Plymouth @plimothplantation living museum. Actors play the roles of the actual settlers, both in lifestyle and in dialect. This guy was simply astounding... ◀️◀️◀️ to hear him tell his tales. More images to follow!
