It is believed Yanga had been a fugitive since the early 1570s, and was the leader of a formidable group of maroons. Spanish: En resumen, los informes que aquí aporto confirman que cimarrón es un indigenismo de origen antillano, que se usaba ya en el primer tercio de siglo xvi, y que ha venido a resultar otro de los numerosos antillanismos que la conquista extendió por todo el ámbito del continente e hizo refluir sobre la propia metrópoli. The first day included a sombre visit to Arlington Military Cemetery, the final resting place of 400,000 service men and women, where several Junior Leaders were chosen to speak on military leaders who were buried there. In what is now Colombia, in the district of Popayán, the palenque of Castillo was successfully established by runaway slaves.

Maroon communities had to be inaccessible and located in inhospitable environments to be sustainable. The treaties effectively freed the Maroons a century before the Slavery Abolition Act 1833, which came into effect in 1838. In 1739 maroon leader Sans Souci was captured near Flacq and was burnt alive by the French settlers.To ensure this loyalty, maroon communities used severe methods to protect against desertion and spies. One of Guillermo's deputies, Ubaldo the Englishman, whose christened name was Jose Eduardo de la Luz Perera, was initially born a slave in London, sold to a ship captain, and took a number of trips before eventually being granted his freedom. Many were formerly part of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, but have been excluded since the late 20th century by new membership rules that require proving Native American descent from historic documents.

In February 1706 another revolt was organised by the remaining maroons as well as disgruntled slaves. The physical isolation used to their advantage by their ancestors has today led to their communities remaining among the most inaccessible on the island.In Dominica, escaped slaves joined indigenous Kalinago in the island's densely forested interior to create maroon communities, which were constantly in conflict with the British colonial authorities throughout the period of formal chattel slavery. Deeply informative and at times going to exhaustive detail on the relationship between Red and Black natives, free and enslaved blacks, and Moors from Africa and Europe in pre-colonial and early colonial America. For centuries, enslaved Black people fought the oppressive forces in America, while finding sanctuary in swamps and other maroon communities. In 1739 and 1740, the British governor of the Colony of Jamaica, Edward Trelawny, signed treaties promising them 2,500 acres (1,012 ha) in two locations, at Cudjoe's Town (Trelawny Town) in western Jamaica and Crawford's Town in eastern Jamaica, to bring an end to the warfare between the communities.

This was also to give rise to a wave of Dominican maroons who went on to lead the first maroon activities of the Americas.In 1830, the Spanish colonial authorities carried out military expeditions against the palenques of Bumba and Maluala.
