Jamaica Culture
Uniquely Distinctive!
Symbolic of our heritage and history, 'Jamaica culture' was fashioned around the mixture and influences of its many peoples. Our motto "Out of Many one People" perhaps provide the perfect definition and insight into our culture. We boast a rich blend of African, European, Chinese, Indian and some middle eastern cultures. Of course the early Taino settlers played a pivotal role in our culture as well. Many of our foods today, for example, are prepared similar to the way it was prepared by the eary Taino settlers then. The concept of 'Jerk' as well as cassava preparations were inherited from this friendly tribe that inhabited Jamaica then. By the way, the name Jamaica came directly from them, who called the island 'Xaymaca' meaning 'the land of wood and water'. The areas of Dance, Music, Folklore, Religion and Language have benefited tremendously from this amalgamation of cultures.

Culture of Jamaica
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Jamaican culture represents a rich blend of cultures that have inhabited the Greater Antilles island, Jamaica . The original Taino Settlers, followed by their Spanish conquerors (who were in turn conquered by the British ), all made major contributions. However, it is the blacks and slaves who became the dominant cultural force as they suffered and resisted the harsh conditions of forced labour . After the abolition of slavery, Chinese and Indian migrants were transported to the island as indentured workers, bringing with them ideas from the Far East. The official national language is English , heavily spiced with local idioms and Elizabethan usage. The primary local language is patois , or Jamaican Creole

The unique Jamaican culture is kept alive by its extraordinary people
Ethnic Stew Nowhere else on earth will you find a culture as dynamic as the one visitors encounter in Jamaica. Its people are a mixture of the many ethnicities that have landed on the island's shores over the past several centuries. Weathering enslavement and oppression, the Jamaicans are survivors, and their past is full of fascinating stories just waiting to be told.
Cultural Heritage
Whether they are the descendants of the colonists or recent immigrants from the Middle East, people of all nationalities live and work together in Jamaica. Cultures have been mingling on Jamaica's shores for hundreds of years. And while this mixture inspires pride, it is also the source of Jamaica's characteristically brassy banter that, to an outsider, might seem inappropriate at times. The , who inhabited the island long before European discovery, also left behind a cultural history. Most Jamaicans are always willing to talk about subjects most find uncomfortable, peppering their speech with terms such as 'browning,' 'redman,' 'coolie,' 'whitey,' 'blacka' or 'Miss Chin.' It is not uncommon to find people of all ethnic backgrounds on Jamaica, and the islanders are comfortable with their outward racial differences because they know this is part of what makes their culture unique.

CULTURE Jamaica has a wide range of food. Most of it features exotic spices and tropical friuts and vegtables, due to its location. Some delicacies include Mannish water, a soup claimed to cure infertility, impotence and even the common cold; cowcod soup is a soup made from bananas, yams, rum, and "cowocd" (a jamaican secret!), and jerk chicken, which is chicken marinated in spices and then fried. It's not for the faint of tongue! They also eat ackee ( salted fish) and fried plantains, among other things.

  • Home About Jamaica
    Jamaica has a rich and diverse culture blended from around the world. Jamaica's motto is "Out of Many, One People". Nearly ever different race is represented here. This diversity is most apparent in the various foods. African and European influences dominate the culture; however, the spanish, Irish, Indians, Chinese and Germans have all left their mark. The Jamaican people are inherently friendly telling it like it is. Due in part to its strong British influence, Jamaicans are modest and conservative dressers. The display of skin is frowned upon in formal environments. The official language of Jamaica is English. However, most likely you will hear traces of what sounds like a foreign tongue. The language on the streets is called Patois. Patois is a combination of English, spanish. Portuguese and African phrases which sounds more rhythmic then traditional English. Jamaicans have a musical heritage that stems from their African and European roots. Reggae music is Jamaica's most recognized sound. These thumping sounds are rich and infectious and encompass expression of personal freedom, independence, religion, and gossip. Jamaica's most famous is Bob Marley whose influence helped bring Reggae music into the Jamaican main stream. Jamaica's lush colorful landscapes act as muse for its people. These vibrant colors are reflected in the visual arts. Jamaicans have produced some of the best paintings, sculptures, and pottery in the Caribbean. Jamaican artists draw influences from their diverse culture. These colorful works of art include precious treasures produced by unconventional artists ranging from the academic to the self-taught artisan.
