The slaves were captured from their tribes by people (usually part of another tribe) crept up and either threw a net of clubbed them until they were unconsios. They then transported the to a fort where they were held ready to be take onto boats by the traders.

The slaves were mainly bought by british boats from the African traders and were taken to many countries including parts of South America, and some parts of asia, but mainly to the United States.

Most of the slaves, Over 35% were shipped to Brazil and South American colonies, not the then non existent U.S.
