About this deal

This community began at the start of the seventeenth century, when Benkos Biohó led a group of about 30 runaways into the forests, and defeated attempts to subdue them. Accompong's autonomy was ratified by the government of Jamaica when the island gained independence in 1962. A lot of people were being interviewed and telling the background history but, too many of them were repeating exactly what the person before them had just said and some were just not worth listening to; it got very annoying very quickly! Governor Nicolás de Ovando was already complaining of escaped slaves and their interactions with the Taíno Indians by 1503. After the governor tricked the Trelawny Maroons into surrendering, the colonial government deported approximately 600 captive maroons to Nova Scotia.

Eventually, the Spanish agreed to peace terms with the palenque of San Basilio, and in 1772, this community of maroons was included within the Mahates district, as long they no longer accepted any further runaways.In the 1790s, about 600 Jamaican Maroons were deported to British settlements in Nova Scotia, where American slaves who had escaped from the United States were also resettled. The most famous quilombo was Palmares, an independent, self-sustaining community near Recife, established in about 1600. Remnants of Maroon communities in the former Spanish Caribbean remain as of 2006, for example in Viñales, Cuba, [28] and Adjuntas, Puerto Rico.

Roadways had become so open to attack, the Spaniards felt it was necessary to only navigate in groups. Stark's History and Guide to Barbados and the Caribbee Islands: Containing a Description of Everything on Or about These Islands of which the Visitor Or Resident May Desire Information .Observations on the disposition, character, manners, and habits of life, of the Maroons of the island of Jamaica; and a detail of the origin, progress, and termination of the late war between those people and the white inhabitants". We would not have gained thought-provoking ideas that have sparked the drive for improvement, and the drive for development of our approaches to leadership and our future. Despite the same spelling, the meaning of 'reddish brown' for maroon did not appear until the late 1700s, perhaps influenced by the idea of maroon peoples. It is believed Yanga had been a fugitive since the early 1570s, and was the leader of a formidable group of maroons.
