In Suriname Boni is the most famous slave rebel leader. His story is taught in school and everybody in Suriname knows about Boni.

Boni was the leader of a group of several small maroon tribes, which we know today as the Aluku. The Aluku now live for the most part in St. Laurent, Guyane(Border town east of Suriname),along the Marowijne river, (Maroni in French).

The main reason the story of Boni stands out is because it is the most well documented account of the Suriname slave revolts, thanks to the writings of John Gabriel Stedman, who was hired as one of hundreds of soldiers from Europe to fight Boni.
