Paula Anacaona is a Paris-based publisher, translator and author. She is the author of 1492, Anacoana l’insurgée des Caraïbes (1492, Anacoana the Insurgent of the Caribbean). Bearing the pseudonym of this legendary warrior, she wanted to write her story in memory of those who died without burial, victims of a politics of oblivion and contemptful colonial project. By telling the story of Anacaona, Caonabo, Ixil, Guakanagrik, a whole people comes back to life and enters the archives.
