The Little United Nations is one of Suriname's nicknames, according to the website of the U.S. Embassy in Suriname. This nickname refers to the great ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity in the population.

Another nickname, 'the land of seven peoples', is mentioned in the article, 'Still life: Sephardi, Ashkenazi, and West African art and form in Suriname's Jewish cemeteries', by Aviva Ben-Ur. The seven peoples are Native Americans, maroons, Javanese, Hindustanis, Europeans, Creoles, and Chinese.

A third nickname is 'Beating Heart of the Amazon', according to the Member Country Profile of Suriname on the website of CARICOM [Caribbean Community].

Who was Suriname's first Olympian?

Siegfried Willem [Wim] Esajas [April 16, 1935-April 30, 2005] was Suriname's first Olympian athlete. He was scheduled to compete in the 800 meter race at the Rome Olympics in 1960 but missed the event, allegedly because he overslept.
