  Gullah Geechee are the descendants of West and West Central Africans who were enslaved together on the isolated sea and barrier islands that span what is now designated as the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor – a stretch of the U.S. coastline that extends  from Pender County, North Carolina to St. John’s County, Florida and for 30 miles inland. The result was an intense interaction among Africans from different ethnic and linguistic  groups, in settings where enslaved Africans and their descendants formed the majority.  Over time, they developed their Creole-based language as a means of communicating with each other; and they were also able to preserve many African practices in their language, arts, crafts and cuisine.
