AMERICAN MAROON’S IS THE OFFICIAL IDENTITY OF THE AUTONOMOUS PARTY AS A COLLECTIVE. WE CHOOSE TO SELF IDENTIFY AS AMERICAN MAROON’S BECAUSE IT RELATES WITH OUR GENEALOGY ON A NATIONAL LEVEL OF ABORIGINAL PEOPLES OF THE AMERICAS, WITH SEPHARDIC, AFRICAN, EUROPEAN MIXTURES. OUR SOCIAL, POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, CULTURAL SIMILARITIES, AND THE PURSUIT OF OUR HEARTS REALITY IS TO LIVE LIFE AUTONOMOUSLY AS A COLLECTIVE! JUST AS OUR ANCESTORS WHO WERE LIVING OFF OF PLANTATIONS AND COLONIAL SOCIETIES BACK THEN.
WE, THE AMERICAN MAROONS OF THE AUTONOMOUS PARTY, ARE THE ETHNOGENESIS OF THAT MIXTURE TODAY, WHO WANT AUTONOMY FOR OUR PEOPLE!
WE HAVE COME OUT OF MANY TO BECOME ONE, TO TELL OUR STORY AS AN COLLECTIVE AS THE AUTONOMOUS PARTY.
THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD AMERICA FROM THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY 1828 - A native of America; originally applied to the aboriginals, or copper-colored races, found here by the Europeans; but now applied to the descendants of Europeans born in America.
THE TRUE FREE PEOPLE OF COLOR OF THE AMERICAS ARE MAROON’S, WHICH IS THE COLOR THAT REPRESENTS TRUE FREEDOM AND LIBERATION OF OUR PEOPLE ! THE FREE PEOPLE OF COLOR STATUS, GOVERNED BY THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION, IS THE AFFRANCHI AKA AFRICAN AMERICAN STATUS OF MODERN DAY THAT HAS US THINKING OF WHAT TODAY IS THE HOMELAND OF OUR ETHNICITY CALLED AFRICA. OF THAT CONTINENT, WHICH IS NOT A COUNTRY, NATION, STATE, TRIBE OR CLAN OF PEOPLE OF THAT CONTINENT SPECIFICALLY CALLED AFRICA TODAY. THE TERM AFFRANCHI DENOTES A LEGAL STATUS THAT TODAY IS CALLED FREEDMEN. BASED ON LINEAGE, WHICH IS DONE BASED ON THE GENEALOGY THAT YOUR FAMILY IS CONNECTED TO AS NATIONS, TRIBES, CLANS AND BANDS OF PEOPLE ABORIGINAL TO THE LANDS OF THE AMERICAS, WITH THE ADMIXTURES THAT MIXED IN AFTER THE 15TH CENTURY AND THROUGH MISCEGNATION AND ETHNOGENESIS BECAME A NEW CULTURE THAT WAS CALLED MAROONS! TODAY THE AMERICAN MAROONS IS THE SAME GENEALOGY OF THE FREE PEOPLE OF COLOR CATEGORY CALLED TODAY AFRICAN AMERICAN AKA AFFRANCHI LAWFULLY DENOTING A FREEDMEN STATUS, ADDING TO THE FACT THAT THESE COLLECTIVE GROUPS OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE AMERICAS LABELED THIS TERM MAROON BASED ON BEING IDENTIFIED AS AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITIES FIGHTING FOR TRUE LIBERATION, AND FREEDOM FOR OUR FAMILIES, CLANS, BANDS, TRIBES, NATIONS OF PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES WE ARE APART OF NOW.
THE WORD MAROON WAS APPLIED BECAUSE IT CLEARLY IN HISTORY STATES THAT THE LANCADO’S- NEGRO/ MARANNO WHO RAN AWAY AND MIXED IN WITH THE DIFFERENT ABORIGINAL GROUPS OF THE AMERICAS, EVOLVED TO BECOME ITS OWN DISTINCT CULTURE WITH THE INFUSION/CREOLIZATION OF THE THREE NATIONS OF PEOPLE MERGING THEIR WAYS OF LIVING, AND HERITAGE TOGETHER . BUT ADAPTING AND MERGING TO BECOME A NEW CULTURE BECAUSE OF THIS ETHNOGENESIS PROCESS ! IT IS THE LANCADO/MARANNO AND ABORIGINAL OF THE AMERICA’S MISCEGNATION OF THE 15TH CENTURY THAT SPARKED THIS ETHNOGENESIS, OUT OF MANY WE ARE ONE, AND AS ONE WE ARE THE MOST HIGHLY EXALTED NATIONS OF PEOPLE MAROONED IN AMERICA ! THE AMERICAN NEGRO TODAY HAS BEEN DISENFRANCHISED AND ALIENATED FROM OUR SOCIAL, POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT OF BEING AN AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITIES OF AMERICA ! THEN GROUPED INTO THE CLASS OF THE AFFRANCHI AKA FREEDMEN OF THE MODERN DAY UNITED STATES OF AMERICA SYSTEM THAT EVOLVED INTO BLACK AND AFRICAN AMERICAN CONNOTATIVE TERMS THE MAJORITY OF OUR PEOPLE USE TODAY MISUNDERSTANDING THE TRUE MEANING OF THEIR LINEAGE THEY HAVE BEEN MAROONED FROM. WHY WE THE AUTONOMOUS PARTY SELF IDENTIFY AS AMERICAN MAROONS AS AN COLLECTIVE !
Maroon peoples and their members have the same rights as indigenous peoples and their members. For the IACHR, “international human rights law imposes an obligation on the state to adopt special measures to guarantee the recognition of tribal peoples’ rights, including the right to collectively own property. The jurisprudence of the Inter‐American Court of Human Rights in relation to the right to collective property applies not only to indigenous peoples, but also to Maroon peoples who preserve their traditional ways of life based on a special link to their lands and territories. Thus the Maroon Community and different cases, the victims belonged to different communities or peoples who form part of the Maroon populations descending from self‐emancipated slaves that settled in their territories since the colonial period and are therefore not regarded, stricto senso, as “indigenous.” The Court considers the Maroons to be “tribal” peoples and communities.
The term AMERICAN MAROONS today refers to aboriginal individuals with their mixtures today who have come together in unity to create autonomous platforms, and communities for us by us ! Out of many we became one as the THE AUTONOMOUS PARTY- MAROONVILLE
