Jamaican Maroons. Maroons in New Nanny Town, Jamaica: The word Maroon describes people who escaped slavery by seeking refuge in the mountains; it comes from the Spanish word cimarrón meaning people who live on mountain tops. The Maroons successfully escaped their plantations and formed independent militas/communities of free people. In some instances, the Maroon were so feared that some colonizers were forced to sue for peace.
