Rancho Connections – Cuban Fishing Ranchos in Florida
January 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
As commercial fleets hailing from ports in Cuba took benefit of fisheries north of the Florida Straits, colonial and territorial frontier politics influenced their operations. Known as Cuban Fishing Ranchos, these places have left an indelible mark on the landscape of Southern Gulf Coast Florida and continue to offer insights of a complicated history. Join Reflections of Manatee to discuss their operations and contemplate where connections remain.
This lecture will be held outside under an event tent.
This program is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with Reflections of Manatee, Inc.
