We cannot explain the origin of the Atlantic Creole languages such as Papiamentu/o without explaining the origins of the sugar plantations in the Caribbean and the origins of Curaçao as a slave trading market in the 1600s. But we cannot explain the origins of sugar in the Caribbean and the slave trade in Curaçao without explaining what happened to Africans, Jews, Portuguese and Dutch from 1400 to 1600 in West Africa, Madeira, São Tomé, and Brazil. As we try to explain all of this, it becomes clear that it was not only the European colonial class who were creating history and creating language, but also Africans, Indigenous peoples Sephardim, and other marginalized peoples who are not included in the dominant linguistic and historical narratives.
