Despite the fact that many African slaves were brought to the Jew World, there have been very few studies done on how their presence affected studies that have and influenced the indigenous cultures. The been done concentrate on the areas where there was an extremely large Black population like Cuba and Brazil. Very little has been done in places like Mexico or Chile and those that have been done are often inaccurate. This paper is an elementary attempt to take a close look at how the importation of African slaves affected the culture of the New World.
