When did Surinam become Suriname?
Suriname is the Dutch spelling and reflects the pronunciation in Dutch as 'syri-nameh'. Surinam is the spelling by the English settlers who founded the first colony at Marshall's Creek along the Suriname River in 1630. The name of the country is thought to come from the name of a group called 'Surinen' who lived in the area before the arrival of Europeans.

Suriname is famous for its pristine and diverse natural beauty . About 80 percent of Suriname's land surface is covered by tropical rainforest . One of Suriname's most impor…tant landmarks is the Central Suriname Nature Reserve [CSNR] in west central Suriname. The Reserve was created by Conservation International and the Republic of Suriname in 1998. The Reserve was designed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000 in recognition of its 6,178 square miles [16,000 square kilometers] of pristine tropical rainforest ecosystem.
Natural resources , privacy , profitability , and tradition are what Suriname values. The commitment to natural resources may be seen in the Republic's respect for its vas…t, pristine rainforests. Private and public decisions about ecotourism and resource exploitation are made after careful, serious, thorough deliberation. The Republic's commitment to privacy may be identified by the undeveloped communication and transportation networks between Suriname and its neighbors. In fact, the easiest way to access the country is along the coast. The Surinamese traditionally are more connected to the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean islands, and the Netherlands than they are to their own South American neighbors. The commitment to profitability may be found in the continuous, unhindered presence of Suralco in Suriname since 1916. The company is an Alcoa subsidiary. Its operations remain unaffected despite the political upheavals of autonomy, independence and military rule. Suriname's commitment to tradition may be evidenced in the flourishing of immigrant and native cultures and languages alongside of the dominant Dutch colonial and linguistic influences. Specifically, Holi Phagwa honors the Hindu community, Good Friday and Easter Sunday the Christian, Eid al-Fitr the Muslim, and Abolition of Slavery the Maroon.
November 25, 1975
Close cultural ties with the Caribbean, distance from the mother country and the natural outcome of a limited form of self-government were among the reasons why Suriname …became independent from the Netherlands. The limited self-government was granted to Suriname in 1954 by the Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands [Statuut voor het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden]. The Netherlands cooperated with its former colony in the bid for independence, which began in 1973. Suriname officially became independent on November 25, 1975.

It is through the provisions of the Treaty of Breda that the Dutch got Suriname. Specifically, the treaty was signed on July 31, 1667 in the Dutch city of Breda. It repre…sented a quick attempt to end the Second Anglo-Dutch War of 1665-1667. By that treatment, the Dutch exchanged their colony of New Amsterdam for the English colony of Suriname.
It is through the settlement claims of the Dutch that Suriname became a country. Specifically, a country is a geographical region that is organized into a political unit w…hose culture and economy have something in common or share a common commitment. In the case of Suriname, the Dutch laid claim to an area whose geography began with a coastal zone in the north, flowed into coastal plains, and sandwiched hills, mountains and rain forests between savanna grasslands in the north and south. Additionally, that area was settled albeit in pockets by related populations indigenous to Caribbean islands. The different tribes were committed in their own different tribal ways to living off Suriname's vast land and water resources through farming, fishing and hunting. The Dutch therefore were faced with a geographic unity from which tribal cultures and economies formed separate but similar expressions and through which the Netherlands forged a country from colony to autonomous dependency to independent sovereign state.
