Maroons

Maroons, the name given to wild negro bands in Jamaica and Guiana; those in Jamaica left behind by the Spaniards on the conquest of the island by the English, 1655, escaped to the hills, and continued unsubdued till 1795; in Guiana they still maintain independent communities. To maroon a seaman is to leave him alone on an uninhabited island, or adrift in a boat.
