This is how it is, as early as 1441, that is ten years before Christopher Columbus was born, the Gold Coast, which is now called Ghana, was invaded the African people from the Cormantee Tribe aswell as the Akan tribe and the Ashanti, was stoled away in shackles and taked to Spain, but most of the time, whenever they get the chance they escaped into the mountians and disappear, so the Spanish people called all of them Cimaron, which is the Spanish word for Maroon, which means wild. After Columbus grow up and capture Jamaica,some of the Spanish people moved tp Jamaica and take along all their belongingsincluding their African slaves to Jamaica.At that time they were still called Cimaron under the Spanish slave trading activities for more than 200 years. Then England invaded Jamaica in the year 1655 and take in away from the Spanish people, and that was when the english translated the name Cimaron to Maroons and from then on they were called the Maroons, which is the English translation of the name Cimaron. So, all of them were called Maroons, whther they were good or bad, but all of them were original African people from the Coromantee Tribe of people, so, we have to restore the name Caromantee on allof them whether they are good are bad, because Coromantee is their original African name, whether they are good are bad people. The Europeans are just a out of order set of people, who think that they can call African people whatever they feel to call them. The are some people in Surinam which they call Bush Negro. I do thiswill clear up thetopic for you. So, that is why we are saying Maroons No No No No.
Coromantees Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
