This chapter discusses the assault on Tooy in July 2001, just a week after his enstoolment as Saramaka captain of Cayenne. According to Tooy, he saw the assault coming as a result of several conflicts, including his differences with the Association of Young Active Saramakas of Guyane. This chapter also highlights the decision of Ronald to withdraw as Tooy's client. This made Tooy extremely worried because the idea that Saramakas were not competent to solve a problem such as Roland's was a collective shame.
