Kunuku houses are former slave homes on Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire. 'Kunuku' means plantation or countryside. The West India Company established large plantations after the conquest of the islands. Homes were built on the plantation grounds by the slaves who were brought from Africa to work on the plantations.
The houses were made of wood, coral stone, limestone or loam, on a wickerwork of branches with a roof of corn and/or reed stalks. Later, crushed oil cans, tinplate and corrugated sheet iron were also used.
So they are really old houses that reflect the history of the islands.
