The Jamaican Maroons were runaway who fought the British during the 18th century. When the British invaded Jamaica in 1655 the Spanish colonists fled leaving a large number of Africans who they had enslaved.
These escaped Africans inherited the name Maroons, which is derived from the Spanish word “cimarrones” meaning “unruly, fugitive or wild.” Being the exactly opposite of the intended meaning of their name, Maroons in Jamaica were highly skilled, clever, organized and courageous men and women, who, despite being forced to unfamiliar lands, were able to easily adapt and make use of their new environment. They were also able to preserve and utilize the culture and skills bestowed upon them by their African culture and ancestors to resist the grasp of slavery and bondage.
Rather than be re-enslaved by the British, they escaped into the hilly, mountainous regions of the island, joining those who had previously escaped from the Spanish to live with the Taínos. #Maroons #Jamaican #1655 #freedom #ourhistory #bobmarley #emancipation
