    Of course, when speaking of Carribbean peoples whom are proud of their heritage, none can be more proud than the 'Maroons'.

    A Maroon - from the word marronage or American/Spanish cimarrón: "fugitive, runaway".

    Ther were Maroons in all parts of the Carribbean and Florida, but none can be more proud than those of Jamaica. The most famous of them being "Old Cudjoe".

    The maroons were communiteis of escaped slaves that melted away into the interior and raided plantations and settlements from their mountain and forest fastness. The Maroons of Jamaica fought and frustrated the British until, in the end, the British treated with them and used them as a police force to capure further runaway slaves.

    For their part, the Maroons promised to cease their attacks on the plantations and the military. They agreed to return runaway slaves and, if called upon, to hunt them down, a fact which makes many Jamaicans ambivalent about them still. They were required to do so a number of times, notably during Tacky’s Rebellion in 1760, when a band of Coromantee slaves broke into a fort, stole arms and ammunition and then took to the hills. Tacky was killed by one of the Maroon hunters.

    Captain Cudjoe
    DAUNTLESS MAROON CHIEF OF JAMAICA


    The greatest of the Maroon leaders of this island was Cudjoe, an illiterate, ragged, barefooted, undersized, and unshapely Coromantee. Of seemingly inexhaustible energies, Cudjoe possessed all the qualities of a born commander. He defeated the British in every encounter, and had he been able to get arms and ammunition, he would doubtless have done to them what Dessalines did to the French in Haiti, that is, drive them from the island. The slaveholders seemed powerless against his attacks.

    I'm sorry, I couldn't find our little conversation that started this. Do you all get to go back and visit very often? IIRC, you said your wife is from there. Just curious.

    We used to travel out there a couple of times a year (Christmas and Easter - summer is the rainy season), but since my Mother-in-law died a few years ago, my wife hasn't been able to cope with a visit as she's been grieving. so much so, that we sold our properties (We had a rather nice colonial style house and a couple of apartments ) there. However, she now feels the need to return and get in touch with her roots, so-to-speak, so a trip is on the cards for carnival, next year.

    Carnival is rather good, but I like to get out into the Northern range.

    Maracus Bay ( so named as it is shaped like a maracus), on the north coast is probably my most favourite area in Trinidad. The north coast is very sparcley populated, so much of that part of the island bounded by the northern range, remains unspoilt. As Trinidad has large oil nad natural gas resources, they are not dependent on tourism as with most Carribbean islands.

    Cuts tried to PM me, or has Cuts run out of message space?
    Edit:Nevermind, Cuts has been PM'ing me with clues to "basic and beginners quiz".

    Wow 32bravo, that's some beautiful forestry and beaches there in the northern part of Trinidad! Hope y'all are able to get back over there like you said.

    I have responded to this post - must have disappeared somewhere?

    We used to visit the island twice a year: Chrismas and Easter, the summer months are in the middle of the rainy season.

    However, since my mother-in-law died a few years ago, my wife wasn't able to face visiting the island and her mother not being there. So, we sold up our properties ( a colonial style house, not unlike this one http://www.vacations-abroad.com/imag...1photo0007.jpg and a couple of apartments elsewhere) and backed away for a while. My wife is now beginning to yearn for the Carnival experience, so we will most likely visit next year, God willing.

    I once climbed up this waterfall (Paria Falls), but slipped off as I reached the top - Made quite a splash!! http://images.google.co.uk/imgres?im...%3Den%26sa%3DN

    Oh, this is a different post, I was responding to the links you provided of the northern areas of Trinidad in post #20. And hoping that y'all are able to get back there this year like it sounds that you're planning to do.

    P.S. Thanks for more links! (I'll look at them when I get home from work, take care!)

    Fine. Thought I was suffering a little De javou.
