I'm translating the french article fr:Cilaos_(Réunion) Please pick up where I've left off, or brush up by translation. If several people work on this, we'll knock it off in no time.
Hello I lived in cilaos for a short time last year and became very interested in the plight of the runaway slaves.
"However, these first runaways were recaptured very quickly"
this line gives the impression that the runway slaves were caught very quickly, i was told that there were slaves who lived in the the chaudron for generations and I was told of slaves in salazie namely Anchaing who lived there for over 25 years.
I have no eveidence for this just an old creol man who claimed to be descended from the very slaves who were never captured. I will try and find some more information.
