The Poet-Chief of Haiti, Anacaona | Episode 39
Anacaona was a leader of the Taino people, an indigenous Haitian tribe in the 16th century. She had the unfortunate task of dealing with the white conquistadors who came ashore in the 1500's. She was a poet and the ultimate diplomat, and despite the horrific abuse she and her people suffered at the hands of the conquistadors, she is remembered as one of Haiti's enduring heroines. She was a seriously good witch whose legacy lives on.
