- "Jason Yaremko traces the movements and migrations of indigenous peoples from several regions of North America into the Caribbean basin, particularly to Cuba, during the Spanish colonial period. Yaremko argues that the history of the journeys of indigenous individuals, groups, and communities to Cuba--and their multifaceted and dynamic experiences of survival, adaptation, resistance, and negotiation of Cuban colonial society--has played an important but often unacknowledged role in identity formation in Cuban and Caribbean history"--Provided by publisher.
