#1533: vocabulary question. (fwd)

From: madison bell <mbell@goucher.edu>

Is there a good Kreyol word that would cover tiny settlements set up in the 
hills by maroons, or by nouveaux libres in the Revolutionary 
period.  "lakou" seems inaccurate (since such settlements wouldn't 
necessarily have a common bloodline) and "bouk" seems a little grander than 
what I'm thinking....
