Expressions of intangible heritage associated
Though not specifically or exclusively related to Fort Zoutman, both the historical exposition and the cultural events in Fort Zoutman, portray aspects of African slave history on Aruba. Two of them are the role of slavery in relation to Papiamento as Aruba’s national language and tambú music as a local form of national and traditional expressions or manifestations with African origins.
