Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles
Slave huts near the salt flats on Bonaire. These little huts were used to give shelter to the slaves who worked the salt flats from the 1600s to the 1800s. The proper homes of the slaves were in the village of Rincon – about 35kms distant – from where they would walk to and from work.
The pyramid structure, one of several along this coast, was used to signal shipping as to where they could load the bags of salt.
