Chapter 3 marks the shift in focus to indigenous passages based largely on involuntary or forced migrations to the island. In another region of the continent to the west of Florida but during the same period, the Apache peoples of the southwestern region of the USA or northern New Spain also struggled with Spanish colonization. For Apache and Puebloan peoples, deemed "barbaros" due to their aggressive resistance to Spanish attempts to colonize the northern provinces, passages to Cuba were almost invariably involuntary, as hundreds of captives were forcibly deported and relocated, banished to insular exile and slavery. Many were welcomed by their colonial hosts for their servitude; their compliance in colonial Cuban society, however, is another question.
