This video documents the disappearing languages of the Eastern Maroons of Moore Town, Jamaica. The languages are (i) Kromanti, a language variety related to the Akan language cluster of West Africa, and (ii) Uol Taim Patwa or 'Maroon Spirit Language', a very archaic form of English-lexicon Creole, similar in many ways to the Creole languages of Suriname. The language is presented through Mr Isaac Bernard, one the last culture bearers of the community, with a good command of these languages. The video is part of the Caribbean Indigenous and Endangered Languages website, which is co-sponsored by the Jamaican Language UnitUnit for Caribbean Language Research, University of the West Indies, Mona, and UNESCO.

Interviewed in this video are White Jamaicans, plenty of Indian Jamaicans, Chinese Jamaicans (there were so many but they were the most camera shy) and of course, Black show the diversity of the country that most people don't know about. This was at Jerk Fest 2009, just one event had so much diversity! My apologies to ChinaBForever, Jamaicans of Chinese descent who had submitted their video for this project - I tried hard and hard but it did not want to convert into something my computer could, I'll upload it separately. Many thanks to everyone who everyone who gave their time for this video...And even so I think I have missed some...

Jamaican racial frictions part 4

forgotten faces facebook page - https:www.facebook.compagesForgotten-Faces-of-the-West-Indies198975960142614 a study on color lines and racial frictions from a historic and contemporary outlook on Jamaica. Directed by David Ritter Narration by Rose Thompson Music by Jason Duguay Special thanks- Orville Coley Carib productionsDavid Ritter copyright 2011 Forgotten Faces is a video documentary project that raises awareness of and celebrates the minority ethnic groups of the West Indies. Many people are unaware of the existence of populations of Jamaicans and Haitians of white European, Chinese, East Indian, and Middle Eastern descent, living in Jamaica and Haiti. These ethnic groups are diminishing in the West Indies, but have played very important roles in the history of these countries and their culture. People interviewed are from diverse backgrounds, including: celebrity, middle class, those with political goals, those who wish to affect their country in massive ways, and those who simply want to live their lives in the country they love. General reactions to white Jamaicans and white Haitians range from amazement to shock and disbelief, and, even to hostility. These reactions are followed by questions: Who are these people? How did they get here? What is their "story"? How do other Jamaicans and Haitians feel about them? Forgotten Faces addresses these questions.some of these minority groups have experienced discrimination from both their governments and the general populace. Many of these incidents have gone unreported and have, in some cases, been renumbered in the history books of Jamaica, Haiti, and the United States. These people have a story to tell about their hardships and about their accomplishments website - http:forgottenfaces.infojamaica.php facebook page - https:www.facebook.comforgotten.faces.52

White Euro Jamaicans Jamaicans are white too

The original whites or Caucasians in Jamaica were the owners and masters of the slaves in Jamaica, and most were originally from Europe. After the abolition of slavery, many of them remained and continued running their sugar estates. One such family was the Lawsons, who owned and operated the Sugar Estate in Hampden, Trelawny.
