Gaaman Gazon


Gaaman Gazon

Gaanman Gazon (born 1910s) is the current chief or headman of the Aukan or Ndyuka people of Suriname, South America. He lives in Diitabiki (Drietabbetje), a village which is located on the Tapanahony River. Gaanman Gazon belongs to the "Otoo Lo" or clan and most of the Aukan Chiefs have come from this clan. As of 2006, he is aged in his late 80's (or early 90's) and is therefore one of the longest living chiefs to date.
