Profile: Haso

In 1819 an international court located in Freetown, Sierra Leone liberated Haso a male of 18 years. He was on board the slaving vessel Juanita, which departed from the port of Keta before being intercepted and taken to Freetown, Sierra Leone. His recorded name suggests that he was likely from the Igo speaking region of modern-day Togo.
