There were several maroon communities across the Caribbean areas during the colonial era. In Jamaica, the slaves imported from Africa fought and escaped from slavery (Abrahams and Szwed 73). In the process, these communities established maroons in the mountainous interior of the island of Jamaica. In addition, Maroon communities also formed a major characteristic of the Barbadian slave society.
