Food and Social Relations at Nina Plantation

Abstract

In this article I use animal food remains from an archaeological plantation site to discuss relations between the groups of people who lived on the plantation. First owned by a French Creole family, Nina Plantation, a sugar and cotton plantation in central Louisiana, was sold in 1857 to an Anglo-American family from Philadelphia. Comparisons are made among French, Anglo-American, and African American diets and between pre-Emancipation and post-Emancipation African American diets. The evidence demonstrates the relations of power that existed on the plantation as well as the ways in which ethnicity and economic class affected diet.
