The Cimarones (free Africans; Maroon; Cimarrons; Seminole Istalusti) were the original "Seminoles" of Florida, labeled so by Spanish colonizers. The term originally meant "wild", like stray cattle, with no ethnicity implied by the description. The Black Indian Oconee Muskogee of Georgia who separated from the Creek Federation and resettled in Florida among the Cimarones had no "R" in their language, so the term became "Cimalone" after 1750, then later "Seminole". Edited from Barry Fell, "America B.C.," Pocket Books, New York, 1976, 1989.
"Today, from the back lands of New Jersey through Appalachia, southward into Texas and even across the Mexican border, the descendants of many of maroons who chose to cast their lot with Indians can still be found, largely forgotten, and often desperately poor. It seems quite likely that some maroon traditions are kept alive in these people.-- "Maroon Societies," Richard Price, John Hopkins University Press, Baltimore and London, 1979 SWACK ^ Historical Notes Past
