Summary
In the Dominican Republic, as early as 1512, African slaves escaped from Spanish plantations and lived with the island's Taíno Indians or on their own in remote Hispaniola. These people who were known as 'cimarrones', meaning 'maroons', created their own independent communities that have survived for centuries. These resilient and resourceful 'outlaws' have long developed their own celebrations. This documentary examines cimarrón cultural celebrations and beliefs, in an effort to highlight the full cultural diversity of the Dominican Republic
