Maroon Heritage and Slave Resistance
Maroon Heritage and
Slave Resistance Tour
Known for its beautiful beaches and world renowned reggae music, Jamaica is rich in culture and heritage. Our tour goes beyond the typical tourist trips in that we emphasize the Jamaican Maroon heritage on the eastern side of the island nation.
The Maroons are Jamaican descendents of enslaved Africans who ran away from plantations and successfully fought for their freedom. They have lived freely in communities in the hills and near the ocean for nearly two centuries and have thus preserved much of their African cultural heritage.
We will explore drum, dance, storytelling and natural healing remedies from this friendly community while we explore waterfalls, beaches and reggae music under the Caribbean sun.
