The population is one of the most ethnically varied in the world. Each ethnic group preserves its own culture and many institutions, including political parties, tend to follow ethnic lines. Informal relationships vary: the upper classes of all ethnic backgrounds mix freely; outside of the elite, social relations tend to remain within ethnic groupings. All groups may be found in the schools and workplace.

Description Arawak and Carib tribes lived in the region before Columbus sighted the coast in 1498. Spain officially claimed the area in 1593, but Portuguese and Spanish explorers of the time gave the area little attention. Dutch settlement began in 1616 at the mouths of several rivers between present-day Georgetown, Guyana, and Cayenne, French Guiana.
Suriname became a Dutch colony in 1667. The new colony, Dutch Guiana, did not thrive. Historians cite several reasons for this, including Holland's preoccupation with its more extensive (and profitable) East Indian territories, violent conflict between whites and native tribes, and frequent uprisings by the imported slave population, which was often treated with extraordinary cruelty. Barely, if at all, assimilated into European society, many of the slaves fled to the interior, where they maintained a West African culture and established the five major Bush Negro tribes in existence todaythe Djuka, Saramaccaner, Matuwari, Paramaccaner, and Quinti.
Plantations steadily declined in importance as labor costs rose. Rice, bananas, and citrus fruits replaced the traditional crops of sugar, coffee, and cocoa. Exports of gold rose beginning in 1900. The Dutch Government gave little financial support to the colony. Suriname's economy was transformed in the years following World War I, when an American firm (ALCOA) began exploiting bauxite deposits in East Suriname. Bauxite processing and then alumina production began in 1916. During World War II, more than 75% of U.S. bauxite imports came from Suriname.

Return to Menu The Process to Design a Sustainable Tourism Development and Conservation Strategy for Suriname Vision Statement The charettes will identify the positive and negative existing aspects of each product; identify bottlenecks to tourism development and consider strategies to maximize participation by local people and the impact on long-term conservation of the resources. The program designed on the basis of this analysis will undoubtedly include a wide range of activities, including facilitation of community participation, physical development, technical assistance, training, and promotion. The development of the tourism products will provide the primary attractions and activities for a growing tourism industry. The products will also serve as a model for other tourism developments in the country. In the longer term, the conservation and sustainable tourism theme and the emphasis on community participation and benefits will create a positive public relations image and story for international press that will help develop a positive image of Suriname as a tourism destination. Specific Goals and Issues to be addressed include: for the Historic Paramaribo Product: To develop a core historically significant urban attraction including interpretation, retail shopping, bars and restaurants and overnight accommodations directed at tourists that encourages the long-term valuation and conservation of the historic estate and the participation of the local community in its benefits.

Another Culture Bites The Dust:
Suriname Opens Its Rain forest After a Civil War,
But Leaves A Journalist Wondering,
What Does Eco Tourism Really Mean, Anyway?
By Doug Fine Some people enter a new job blindly, some a relationship. I dove into a Continent backwards and with crossed fingers, having progressed far enough in my admittedly procrastinated background research on Suriname before my departure to hear something about a Native Uprising in the small nation of 377,000 north of Brazil. Supplemental research was provided care of some New Yorker-reading friend of the family, who had told my father, and which he had subsequently reminded me daily via voice mail until I left, that "life was cheap" there. I was immediately grateful for the upturned and clearly not-belligerent expressions on the faces of some of the younger members of our welcoming committee at the airstrip, since I was unarmed, and not one of them, it was clear, spoke Surinamese, nor, need I add, English. I chose to interpret the smiles as a universal sign of peaceful intentions. (The Dutch colonizers called Suriname's creole blend of Papiamento, various African dialects, Hindustani lingua franca and Dutch, "Taki-Taki," which local intellectuals consider a First World Insult. Herein I refer to the preferred "Surinamese." Suriname's Maroons and Amerindians have their own languages.) While I helped unload our supplies for the next week in the rain forest, our one guide who did speak the Bush Negro language Sranan Tonga (or this Central Region dialect of it), a brilliant man and Suriname's Chief Librarian, Stanley Powers, was saying something to a large, be-tattooed man who appeared to be in charge. Both were pointing over at me and the rest of the sensory overloaded group, and immediately after a staccato pronouncement by the Large Man, everyone not fully clothed began to laugh, hard. I broke into exaggerated hysterics as well, as if I understood the whole scam, which seemed to unnerve everybody, including my tour group members, and one native woman hid her child behind her hip.

67. Suriname Before Columbus
The Kwatta culture in central suriname (between the Coppename and suriname Rivers) has a few decorative motives in common with Hertenrits.
Suriname before Columbus
(This text is based on a published text of the authors mentioned above: that text has been summarized and updated.
unless properly referenced
The proper reference is: THE FIRST INHABITANTS: HUNTERS/FISHERMEN/GATHERERS The oldest traces of human activities in the Guianas have been found in savannas, particularly in the savannas in the southern part of the country (Fig. S-1) . There is reason to believe that ca. 10,000 years ago, in a relatively dry climatic period, a more or less uninterrupted savanna belt ran from the coastal area of West Venezuela to the south of Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. It is there that we have to situate these oldest activities. The oldest traces are not found in the tropical forest. Two phases may be distinguished (Boomert, 1980): an older phase of large-game-hunters (late Pleistocene fauna such as mammoths, mastodons and megatherians) and a younger phase of early Holocene small-game-hunters. A problem in making this distinction is the lack of absolute datings in the Guianas, and the lack of remains other than stone materials. This stone material consists of tools and the waste-material from manufacturing the tools: workshops where flaked stone tools were made and, if not satisfactory, discarded. Interesting sites, but limited in information. In the Venezuelan savannas the situation is different: there we find C-14 datable charcoal and bone remains of (now extinct) large game associated with the tools. Diverging "toolkits" from different sites can be compared to those of the dated sites. The age of the tools (and activities) can subsequently be estimated according to their relationship to these well-documented sites.

Emigrating into the Diaspora The East Indian laborers who were leaving India came from Calcutta, Madras, Bombay, Bihar, Bengal, and from the east sub-Himalayan districts, as well as from Gorakhpur, Basti, Gonda, Fyzabad, Jaunpur, Benares, Azamgarh, Ghazipur, Ballia. From the state of Bihar the immigrants came fro the districts of Saran, Muzajjarpur, Darbhangah, Shahabad, Patna and Gaya. From the Himalaya proper ( the Northern border of the U.P. and from Nepal), there were hte Pahariayas ( literally mountain people), who are known in Suriname by their very light skin color, and the Gurkhas who are half Indian and half Mongol. There were furthermore only a few people from South India who were Telugus as well as some Tamils from Madras. After their Arrival in Suriname In the Suriname of 1870, two groups of east Indians were visible; the higher cast east Indians who had emigrated on their own, and the lower caste who entered as contract workers ( Oedayrajsingh Varma, 1994). From 1873-1916,64 ships with 34,304 East Indian slaves went directly from India, supposedly free, but inactuality only small number came freely. Since 1882, 3000 Indians had come rom the English and the French Caribbean. To help them solve the various problems they faced at that time, they formed a union named Ek Kheti Karaur Hak. Mr. Grace Schneidars Howard championed the cause of east Indians and earns the distinction of having been their first patron.

Country Information on Suriname
The north of Suriname is mainly made up of a swampy coastal plain, 80 km wide in some places. It merges into the central plateau, which contains vast savannahs, tracts of dunes, and forested areas. To the south, a densely wooded mountainous region rises up to an altitude of 1,280 m. The numerous rivers include the Maroni, which delineates part of the border with French Guiana; the Corantijn Courantyne, which delineates the Guyana border; and the Coppename, Saramacca, and Suriname.
The climate is tropical, with annual temperatures between 22.8 and 32.2°C. The main rainy season is from April to July, with a shorter one in December and January.

The Government is still in the process of institutionalizing democratic, constitutional rule in the country. After generally free and fair elections in May 2000, the 51-member National Assembly elected Ronald Venetiaan of the National Party of Suriname (NPS) as President in August 2000; he replaced Jules Wijdenbosch of the National Democratic Party (NDP). Venetiaan previously served as President in 1991-96. The judiciary was generally independent, although it was inefficient. The mixed economy depended heavily on the export of bauxite derivatives. The country's population was approximately 450,000. The Government and state-owned companies employed over half the working population. Unregulated gold mining was an increasingly important economic activity that highlighted a lack of land rights for indigenous and tribal peoples and had a serious negative environmental impact. Estimated gross domestic product grew by approximately 3 percent. The inflation rate was 28.3 percent, compared with 4.2 percent in 2001 and 82 percent in 2000. Poverty was widespread; one report estimated that 85 percent of families lived below the poverty line. The Government generally respected the human rights of its citizens; however, serious problems remained in some areas. Police mistreated detainees, particularly during arrests; guards abused prisoners; and local detention facilities remained overcrowded. Lengthy pretrial detention was a problem, and the judiciary suffered from ineffectiveness and a huge case backlog due to the shortage of judges. Media self-censorship continued. Societal discrimination against women, minorities, and tribal people persisted. Violence against women and trafficking in women and girls were problems. Suriname was invited by the Community of Democracies' (CD) Convening Group to attend the November 2002 second CD Ministerial Meeting in Seoul, Republic of Korea, as a participant.
