Chapter 2 follows the history of indigenous passages within the Florida-Cuba nexus into the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. As the imperial geopolitics of the region were altered by the more aggressive entry of the British after 1762, the English occupation of Cuba, and then the recovery of the “Pearl of the Antilles” by the Spanish, indigenous peoples continued to adapt in their responses to the alternating waves of colonizers penetrating the continent and surrounding region. Mobility remained key as hundreds again took flight to and refuge in Cuba. Others, especially Amerindian newcomers to Florida such as the Lower Creeks, also journeyed to the island, and like their predecessors, used it to promote their own geopolitical interests, a story that appears to end with the territorial takeover and "Indian removal" by the United States.
