This chapter chronicles the pervasiveness of regionalist sentiment within contemporary Cuban society. First, a genealogy of regionalism on the island from the early colonial period through independence is presented in order to contextualize the present situation and challenge the notion of a unified hybrid nation put forth by the Cuban state. The discussion of contemporary regionalism will focus on relationships among Cubans in Havana, and the effects of large-scale migration from Oriente (eastern Cuba) to the capital. The second part of the chapter elucidates the intersections between race and place, taking into account the racial demographics of each region both historically and in the present moment.

Keywords:   Regionalism, Race, Place, Oriente, Havana
