Latin in the Americas is Native American + European + African.

Lenape Manahatta

What is now New York City, western Long Island, and New Jersey was the land of the indigenous Lenape people.

The old Lenape village was in Inwood at the northern tip of Manhattan. We called the island Manahatta, meaning “land of many hills.” The site of the old village is the most beautiful quiet spot in Manhattan. There are “Indian Caves” nearby.

Juan Rodriguez, Manhattan’s First Immigrant

The old Lenape trading post at the southern tip of Manhattan became the home of Manhattan’s first immigrantJuan Rodriguez (Jan Rodrigues in Dutch or João Rodrigues in Portuguese). He was Portuguese-African – Dominican and “immigrated” from Santo Domingo.

The old trading post became the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Customs House. The building is now the National Museum of the American Indian. It is part of the Smithsonian.

New Amsterdam was Founded by the Spanish Netherlands

The old Dutch settlement below Wall Street was founded in 1624 when Holland was part of the Spanish Netherlands (1581 – 1714). The old fortifications on what is now Wall Street were built by African slaves to keep out the Lenape.

NYC First Jewish Community was Sephardic (Spanish & Portuguese)

New York City’s first Jewish community was a group of twenty-three Sephardic (Spanish & Portuguese) Jewish immigrants. They were fleeing the Spanish Inquisition in Brazil. They arrived in what was then Dutch New Amsterdam in 1654.

Wall Street was Built by African Slaves from Cuba

There was once an African slave market at the east end of Wall Street at Pearl Street. It was the second biggest slave market in our country, after Charleston, North Carolina. New York City’s slaves came from Cuba through Pier 17 which is now the South Street Seaport.

The Capital of the Latin World

Today New York City is the capital of the Latin world.
