This chapter focuses on the political problem of Tooy as Samaraka captain of Cayenne. It explains that some members of the Conseil General, the political body that officially recognizes Amerindian and Maroon captains, brought a Saramaka to the Aluku gaama and declared him captain of the Saramakas of Cayenne, leaving Tooy powerless. Another problem was the defection of Tooy's assistant Kaluse to his rival.

Keywords:   Samaraka captain, Tooy, Cayenne, Conseil General, Aluku gamma, political problems
