In general, the historiography of slavery renders the enslaved as passive victims without voice. This presentation offers a new avenue to reactive voices of Black subjects under French colonial rule in the Caribbean. Using historical archaeology through a Black feminist lens to address and confront certain historiography-based assumptions about enslaved populations, I explore slave foodways to suggest these daily subsistence practices, many of which were performed by Black women, were a form of transformative Black resistance for identity formation and societal change.
