Harvest of aloe

The website archivoboneiru.com contains several documents that describe in detail what the entire aloe industry was like on Bonaire. The book/document of L.D. Gerharts: ‘The Aloe from Bonaire’ is recommended for this. Boi Antoin has also documented several oral narrations about how women and children cut the aloe.

One such story can be read in the December 2007 Christmas edition of the Extra, p. 28 at www.archivoboneiru.com
