The Maroon Pangi
I did a little research on the Maroon Pangi. I learned that the word ‘pangi’ means cloth and ‘Maroon’ is a group of Surinamese people who are descendants of escaped slaves. The word ‘maroon’ comes from the Spanish word cimarrón which can be translated as ‘runaway living on mountain top.’ I also watched Mireille’s YouTube video titled ‘Simple wrap with a Pangi, a traditional Maroon wrap.’ I enjoyed the video. My family is from Nigeria and we also use head wraps to keep cool in our hot, HOT weather!
