A majority of Cubans claim Taíno, one of the islands’ first peoples, West African, or Spanish ancestry, or a mixture of these. Cuba the people features the history of the country’s people and their daily lives today. Candid photographs help portray bustling life in the country’s many cities as well as the poverty which exists for many of Cuba’s people.
