There are about 10.000 of those, they are not even acknowledged in the
Surinamese flag with its five points which stand for the five most important
3385 speakers total. In addition, the speakers of these languages have
a much much much longer history in Surinam than any of the other
people, they are more "Surinamese" than Indians, Chinese, Javanese,
Blacks, Europeans, or mixed-race.
3385? did you count them?
No, this is approximate (margin of error is small though, about
50~75). This is not a count of native americans in surinam, it is of
people speaking Native American languages, which is a different number
as many Native Americans are monolingual in Sranan, Saramaccan, or
There is not a single native american that will be monlingual in
Saramaccan or Aucan or any of the other creole languages. These are
languages of the bushnegroes (deregatory term I know but that is what
the group is called) the tw groups absolutely do not mix. Also your
certainty of the number is absurd.
Ethnologue may have a field office there but it doesn't mean theyare per
definition right they can also be totally wrong when classifying languages.
I am not even going into the other parts of your mail. To waistfull of time.
