Price: p. 1 note 1. "The English word 'maroon,'like the French 'marron,' derives from the Spanish 'cimarron.' As used in the New World, cimarron originally referred to domestic cattle that had taken to the hills in Hispanola
(Parry and Sherlock 1965: 14) and soon after to Indian slaves who had escaped from the Spanish as well (Franco 1968: 92). By the end of the 1530s, it was already beginning to refer primarily to Afro-American runaways
(Franco 1968: 93; see also Guillot 1961: 38), and had strong connotations of 'fierceness,' of being 'wild' and 'unbroken'. (Friederici 1960: 191-92.)
