The Olinka villagers don't know about African American slavery or do not want to hear about it. They exist in a relative bubble due to their remoteness.Many villagers also assume that Nettie and Corrine are wives of Samuel’s.

The people believe that they have always lived in the same spot, growing cassava, groundnuts, yam, cotton, and millet.
