About Gaspar Yanga
In the late 1560s, Prince Yanga was kidnapped from the African kingdom to serve as a slave in what used to be called New Spain and now called The Gulf of Mexico. His name was changed to Gaspar (which means treasure) because he was considered a prized-enslavement because he was of royal blood. But the joke was on the Spaniards.
In 1570, he was the first liberator of the Americas of any color after leading a slave revolt. The group of maroons grew to about 550 in 30 years. He intelligently strategizes ways to fight for his people against oppression— laying down traps for this who had hope to recapture them and put them back into the yoke of slavery. 1609 the Europeans tried to shake down Yanga’s people, and the Afro-Indio people bust back— maintaining their community from intruders looking to take their freedom again.
