Tula Monument

  Between Koredo and Holiday Beach Hotel, Curacao     more than a year ago
There are several people in the history of Curacao who are considered heroes and Tula is one of them. Seven weeks after a slave named Tula began a revolt against his white masters in 1795, he was publicly tortured to death at the same location where this impressive statue now stands. After the revolt was crushed, the Curaçao government formulated new rules that defined the rights of slaves on the island. Tula is revered on Curaçao today as a champion of human rights and independence. August 17, the day the uprising began, is still celebrated on Curaçao to commemorate the first step in a long fight for freedom. The Tula Monument can be found on the south coast of the island near the Holiday Beach Hotel.
