Pick a Side…

With the rumors of witchcraft circulating, two factions have formed. Which character belongs to which team?


BARBADOSTituba is from Barbados, an island in the West Indies. Barbados was originally inhabited by the Arawak and the Carib, although it was uninhabited when the first white settlers arrived from England in 1627. West African slaves were brought there during the 1600s and the 1700s.

Africans brought to the West Indies cultural practices that contributed to the development of voodoo, which is characterized by sorcery and spirit possession. The Puritans did not know or understand Tituba's culture, and anything they did not know, they assumed to be evil. Therefore, Tituba is the perfect target for accusations of witchery.

What If?What do you think would have happened if Tituba had not confessed to practicing witchcraft?
