This chapter presents a chronological history of Tooy's life. Tooy spent most of his early years with ritual specialists. His first trip outside Saramaka territory was in the early 1940s and in the 1950s he worked around the Haarlem area near the Saramacca River. Tooy first crossed over to Guyane in 1958, had a public works job, and was later employed in a timber camp in Moiwana. He moved to Cayenne about 1970.
