Abstract:

The Saramaka are one of six Maroon (or Bush Negro) groups in Suriname. The Saramaka live in the northern extension of the Amazonian forest along the upper Suriname River and its tributaries, the Gaánlío and the Pikílío, and -- since the 1960s -- along the lower Suriname River in villages constructed by the national government after the flooding of approximately half of tribal territory for a hydroelectric project. This file contains six documents, including five books by the anthropologists Sally and Richard Price. The earliest work is a travelogue-like account of Saramaccan beliefs and practices by the anthropologists Melville and Frances Herskovits, who did their field work in 1928 and 1929. Two of the books by Richard Price are histories based on oral and written accounts and cover the period from the establishment of the plantations in Suriname, in the late 1600s, to the Peace of 1762 (Price, R. 1983) and the following period from 1762 to 1820 (Price, R. 1990). Also included is Richard Price's published dissertation on Saramaccan social structure and organization, Sally Price's work on Saramaccan art and gender relations, and a work the Prices co-authored about Saramaccan folk-telling.
