The tension between antislavery sentiment in France and an expanding demand for enslaved laborers in its colonies profoundly shaped the culture and practice of slavery in the seventeenth-century French Atlantic. Unlike the Indians they would encounter in the Pays d'en Haut, the French drew a sharp distinction between the practice of slavery and the act of enslavement. This chapter discusses the debates about the legality and morality of slavery that shaped where slavery would be practiced and under what conditions and peoples would be targeted as slaves.
