Caribbean Cultural Heritage and the Nation

Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao in a Regional Context

Centuries of intense and involuntary migrations deeply impacted the development of the creolised cultures on the Dutch Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao.

What forms of heritage express the idea of a shared “we” (nation-building), and what images are presented to the outside world (nation-branding)? What cultural heritage is shared between the islands, and what are some real or perceived differences?
