  • What Happened to Tibuta

  • The End!
  • Thank You!
  •     Tibuta did confess to being a witch, as she had nothing to lose by doing so. She was not killed however, due to lack of evidence. Witnesses and Tibuta both say that the Reverend forced her to confess. She remained in jail long after the Salem Witch Trials, because her owner never paid her jail fees.

  •     Although Tibuta was spared her life, 20 others were either killed, hanged, or pressed to death as a wave of mass fear and paranoia swept over the Town of Salem. The Salem Witch Trials ended in May, 1693. We can only hope that such an event of mass hysteria never again happens in America. We must learn from our past mistakes.

  •     In May, 1692, young girls all over the town of Salem, Massachusetts Bay Colony fell victim to fits of  hysteria. The colonists, strict Puritans, decided it was witchcraft and blamed Tibuta, the Parish's slave. She was tried and convicted of witchcraft. While Tibuta's life was spared, her trial sparked paranoia and overwhelming fear in the town.
