Les conventions entre la France et les peuples marrons du Surinam. Contribution à l’étude des middle-grounds post-esclavagistes

Abstract : The recent historiography of North America has emphasized an unusual balance of power between European settlers and Native American tribes. It has underlined the existence of middle grounds that encompass hybrid and syncretic agreements suggesting a compromise between cultures, as well as an even balance of power or one that was unfavourable to the colonial power. As for French Guiana, that notion perfectly describes the agreements that France signed between 1860 and 1892 with runaway slaves from Dutch plantations, commonly called Surinamese Maroons. As a result of the demand for labour and the rivalry between colonial powers, those agreements present a situation where the colonial power is obliged to forget its superiority complex and to treat the Maroons as independent powers authorised to meet together in genuine enclaves.
