of French Guyana. By 1740, Maroons had formed clans and felt strong enough to challenge the Dutch colonists, forcing them to sign peace treaties. On October 10, 1760, the Ndyuka signed such a treaty forged by Adyáko Benti Basiton or Boston, a former Jamaican slave who had learned to read and write and knew about the Jamaican treaty. The treaty is still important, as it defines the territorial rights of the Maroons in the gold-rich inlands of Suriname. Alex van Stipriaan, ''Surinaams contrast'' (1995); Hans Buddingh', ''Geschiedenis van Suriname'' (1995 1999); Alex van Stipriaan Thomas Polimé, ''Kunst van overleven'' (KIT, 2009) The Maroons Marokons created their own independent communities which in some cases have survived for centuries and until recently remained separate from mainstream society. In the 19th and 20th centuries, Maroon Marokon communities began to disappear as forests were razed, although some countries, such as Guyana and Suriname, still have large Maroon populations living in the forests. Recently, many Maroons Marokons have moved to cities and towns as the process of urbanization accelerates. Wikipedia:Suriname Dmoz:Regional South America Suriname Commons:Category:Suriname

'''Suriname''' ( ), is a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered (Borders of Suriname) by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south.
Suriname was colonized by the English and the Dutch (Dutch Republic) in the 17th century. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana (Surinam (Dutch colony)) until 1954. At that time it was designated as one of the constituent countries (constituent country) of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, next to the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles (dissolved (dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles) in 2010). On 25 November 1975, the country of Suriname (Suriname (Kingdom of the Netherlands)) left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become independent (independence). A member of CARICOM (Caribbean Community), it is considered to be a culturally Caribbean country and has extensive trade and cultural exchange with the Caribbean nations.
At just under , Suriname is the smallest sovereign state in South America. (French Guiana, while less extensive and populous, is an overseas department of France.) Suriname has a population of approximately 566,000, most of whom live on the country's north coast, where the capital Paramaribo is located. Suriname is a mostly Dutch (Dutch language)-speaking country; Sranang (Sranan Tongo), an English (English language)-based creole language (English creole), is a widely used ''lingua franca''. It is the only independent entity in the Americas where Dutch is spoken by a majority of the population.
