Travels with Tooy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter focuses on the imprisonment of Tooy at the Centre Penitentiare de la Guyane. It explains that 80% of all the prisoners there are foreigners who cannot speak French. Tooy's time in prison was made more tolerable by Moesoela Amiemba, a Samaraka who had been working in the prison as “cultural mediator” and the link between the Maroon inmates and the guards, doctors, and wardens. This chapter also describes the author's first visit to Tooy.
