Travels with Tooy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter focuses on history of Tooy's ancestor, Antama. It explains that through there were documents about Antama's signing of the peace treaty in 1762, missionary reports indicate that Antama led the anti-white resistance. This chapter also suggests that during the 1770s Antama was the most important obia-man in Saramaka, as well as the de facto gaama for the Upper River region. It also mentions the possibility that Antama spent much of his time the way Tooy does, engaged in routine acts of curing.

Keywords:   Antama, Tooy's ancestor, peace treaty, obia-man, Samaraka, gaama, curing
