Though the Kingdom of Portugal had claimed the area four years earlier, Portuguese (Portugal) explorer Nuno Tristão sailed around the coast of West Africa, reaching the Guinea area in about 1450, searching for the source of gold and other valuable commodities that had slowly been trickling up into Europe via land routes for the preceding half century. Sometime later, slaves (African slave trade) were also added to the list. Portuguese Guinea had been part of the Sahel Empire, and the local Landurna and Naula tribes traded in salt and grew rice. Like in many other regions across Africa, powerful indigenous kingdoms along the Bight of Benin relied heavily on a long established slave trade (African slave trade). The Ashanti (The Ashanti) exploited their military predominance to bring slaves to coastal forts established first by Portugal after 1480, and then soon afterwards by the Dutch, Danish, and English. The slaving network quickly expanded deep into the Sahel, where the Mossi (Mossi people) diverted an ancient slaving trade away from the Mediterranean towards the Gold Coast (Gold Coast (region)). Edward Brynn, Slavery in the Sahel, University of North Carolina With the help of local tribes in about 1600, the Portuguese, and numerous other European powers, including France, Britain (United Kingdom) and Sweden, set up a thriving slave trade along the West African coast. However, the local black African rulers in Guinea, who prospered greatly from the slave trade (African slave trade), had no interest in allowing the white Europeans any further inland than the fortified coastal settlements where the trading took place. The Portuguese presence in Guinea was therefore largely limited to the port of Bissau and Cacheu. For a brief period in the 1790s the British attempt to establish a rival foothold on an offshore island, at Bolama. But by the 19th century the Portuguese were sufficiently secure in Bissau to regard the neighbouring coastline as their own special territory, also in part of present southern Senegal. According to the estimates of Hugh Thomas, a total of 11,128,000 African slaves were delivered live to the New World, including 500,000 to British North America; therefore, only 4.5% of the total African slaves delivered to the New World were delivered to British North America. Also from Hugh Thomas, the major sources of the 13 million slaves departing from Africa were Congo (Congo Basin) Angola (3 million), Gold Coast (Gold Coast (region)) (1.5 million), Slave Coast (2 million), Kingdom of Benin to Calabar (2 million), and Mozambique Madagascar on the east coast of Africa (1 million). THE ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE AND SLAVERY IN AMERICA, NEIL A. FRANKEL A large part of all slaves imported from Africa were bound for the Brazilian colonies (Colonial Brazil). Cacheu, in Guinea-Bissau, was one of the largest slave markets in Africa for a time. After the abolition of slavery in the 1830s, the slave trade went into serious decline, though a small illegal slaving operation continued. Bissau, founded in 1765, became the Portuguese Guinea colony's capital. Though the coast had been under firm Portuguese control for the past four centuries, it was not until the Scramble for Africa that any interest was taken in the inland part of the colony. The remains of the Kaabu kingdom were under Fula (Fula people) control until the Portuguese suppression of the kingdom around the turn of the 20th century. However, a large tract of land that was formerly Portuguese was lost to French West Africa, including the prosperous Casamance River area, which had been a large commercial centre for the colony. Britain tried to take control of Bolama, which lead to an international dispute that came close to war between Britain and Portugal until U.S. (USA) president Ulysses S. Grant intervened and prevented a conflict by ruling that Bolama belonged to Portugal. ideology Socialism, Marxism, Nationalism headquarters Bissau, Bissau Region, Guinea-Bissau international Socialist International
