"Hide Me, O Surrounding Verdure" describes the many ways that African peoples enslaved by the Dutch colonial regime in Suriname and Guyana struggled for personal autonomy and social mobility. By manipulating identity categories and utilizing grassroots communication networks, Dutch slaves resisted colonial oppression; sometimes by rejecting forms of Western cultural imperialism, and often by outright escaping its confines to construct autonomous spaces in the refuge of the natural world.
