In Suriname, officials, as well as church organizations, categorized people in the following ethnic categories: mulatto (a child of an African and a white), mestee (a child of a mulatto and a white, or a child of a white and an Amerindian), casties (a child of a mestee and a white), kaboeger (a child of an African and a mulatto) (Teenstra 1842:85).
