Maroons
The Jamaican Maroons descend from maroons, Africans who escaped from slavery on the island of Jamaica and established free communities in the mountainous interior, primarily in the eastern parishes. Africans enslaved during Spanish rule of Jamaica (1493–1656) likely[original research?] were the first to develop such refugee communities.
