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.

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.

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...
