Creolization refers to the process of constant hybridization that has developed in Caribbean societies. The plantation represents the economic, political and cultural matrix of societies composed in colonization and slavery. Rather than the term of miscegenation or crossbreeding, which seems to indicate consensual practices between forces on equal terms, creolization –of which Edouard Glissant is one of the great thinkers– clearly states the violence of these societies founded on the genocide of Caribbean inhabitants, the predation of land and natural resources, slavery and rape. White settlers, free Afro-descendants and slaves, indigenous populations and survivors of genocide live side by side in extremely hierarchical societies where proximity nonetheless shapes inextricable links between different cultures and conditions.
