BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: SLAVERY AND SLAVE TRADE IN SURINAME :
The British and Dutch like other European Colonizers attempted to use Native American as Slave Labor. As in other countries, the Native Americans did not prove a long term solution and very limited settlement took place. Many of the Native American died in captivity through mistreatment and lack of resistance to European diseases. Many escape deep into the jungle. The Dutch played a key role in the development of plantation sugar agriculture during their brief control of Brazil during the European Colonial Wars (17th Century). Dutch planters driven out of Brazil brought that knowledge to Suriname.
