This chapter re-creates and analyzes different aspects of the maroon community's population and activities. First is a detailed examination of the geographic and cultural origins of the maroons. Second is a consideration of the community's demographics. This is followed by a description of the maroons' occupations during slavery. Fourth is an analysis of the role that gender and family played at Prospect Bluff. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the community's cultural activities. The comparative data demonstrates that the Prospect Bluff settlement was an unusually balanced and full maroon community for such an early stage in its development.

Keywords:   origins, demographics, occupations, gender, family, culture, Prospect Bluff, maroon community
