This chapter discusses the colonial outposts of the Pays d'en Haut and their ways of domesticating captives. Like indigenous slaves in Indian villages, French-owned slaves in the Pays d'en Haut were predominantly women and children. Slaves were incorporated into households to serve their masters and faced an array of perils and possibilities that ranged from sexual violence and forced labor to independent relationships or positions that could shift into and out of subordination.
