This chapter explains how the islanders are not interested in creating a collective history or asserting primacy to a certain history as the basis of belonging. History functions as a commodity that allows tourism workers to play the role of historically oppressed people, who carry no grudges and even openly welcome visitors who have benefited from the exploitation of their grandparents.

Keywords:   collective history, belonging, history, tourism workers, exploitation
