#1 A Brief History of Jamaica and Jamaicans [Bonus]
Your Visit To Jamaica
Here’s Jamaica before 1494 was ruled by nature and inhabited with a gentle group of American Indian people called “Tainos”.
Almost everything change with the arrival of the Europeans.
On May 4, 1494, Christopher Columbus landed at Discovery Bay in St Ann Jamaica and took charge of the island with its peace loving people.
Map of Jamaica
The only things that remain the same are, the beautiful breathtaking landscape. In his log, Columbus described Jamaica as:
“the fairest island that eyes have behold... mountain and the land seem to touch the sky, full of valleys and fields and plains”.
The other unchanged factor is the deceptively small island. Jamaica is the largest English speaking island in the Caribbean and is large enough to measure 4,411 square feet. (10,911 km2).
The Blue Mountain is the highest point elevating to 7,402 feet (2,256M).
This mountainous range dominate the eastern third of the island, bordering the eastern parishes of Portland, St. Thomas, St. Mary and St. Andrew.
She has 14 parishes which are divided into three Counties called Cornwall, Middlesex and Surrey. She has a population of approximately 2.8 million as recorded in 2015.
This little island is widely accepted as the most popular and exotic tourist destination in the Caribbean.
Jamaicans today derive from many races hence the Motto:
“Out of Many One People“.
Unfortunately none of the inhabitants today came from the Tainos, because they all died from forced labour and infections carried here by the Europeans for which they had no resistance.
Columbus and his crew were Spaniards who were on a quest for gold. When they realize there was no gold, they brought sugar cane and slaves from Africa to cultivate the land.
The Spaniards ran things for 191 years, until the English captured Jamaica in 1655.
The English turned the island into one mega sugar plantation, resulting in some wealthy plantation owners.
In England, a common saying was: “as rich as a West Indian planter”.
They had to bring their own slaves from Africa, because those under the Spaniards ran to the hills and became the Maroons.
Many English slaves also ran away and join them. They became a formidable force fighting the English who wanted to re-enslave them.
The English could not defeat the Maroons in their mountainous fortresses, so they had to grant the Maroons self-government and sign peace treaties where they peacefully live on the mountain lands they occupy.
Slavery was abolish in 1838, which was followed by economic chaos resulting in the 1865 Morant Bay Rebellion.
The years that followed emancipation, helped to shape the Jamaica that we know today. Indentured workers from India and China replaced the slaves on the plantations.
Soon after Jewish settlers came, follow by migrants traders from the Middle East.
As a result, today we have a mixture of people making one nation – “Out Of Many (people) One Nation”.
Jamaicans all over continues to prosper and inspire the world with men and women of the highest distinctions.
Persons like civil rights activist Marcus Garvey, actors like, Grace Jones, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Jimmy Cliff, singers like Harry Belafonte, Bob Marley, athletes like Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, basketball like Patrick Ewing, boxers like Michael McCallum and Lennox Lewis to name a few.
In the 1930s the Jamaican political landscape took shape with the formation of the two major political parties.
Your Visit To Jamaica reveals the government system is a constitutional monarchy with a democratically elected parliament based on the Westminster model.
The Queen of England is still the head of state, who is represented by the Governor General (GG), who is appointed by Her Majesty The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister.
The government is led by an elected Prime Minister.
Jamaica House of Parliament
This lead to Jamaica gaining independence from Britain on August 6, 1962, when at mid knight the British Union Jack was lowered for the last time, and the Black Green and Gold Jamaican flag was raised for the first time.
For the next 30 years of independence, Jamaica was mainly depending on the exportation of bauxite as the main source of economic stability.
Tourism is now the island’s #1 foreign exchange earner.
Your visit to Jamaica include The Awesome Outameni Experience, a place you need to put on your bucket list of your Travel Jamaica Packages Attractions.
If you want to get a first hand experience of the culture and history of Jamaica, then Outameni is a must.
The well organized interactive experience will carry you through a brief but accurate history of Jamaica, from the Tainos Indian origins through the sugar plantation era to modern day Jamaica.
The word Outameni is derived from the Tainos, meaning “Come Together“, which is similar to the Jamaican national motto “Out of many one people”.
#3 Legacy and Legendary Great Houses In Jamaica
As a direct legacy from the heyday of sugar production, when sugar was king in Jamaica, Great Houses developed all over the island.&…………
These Great Houses were the seat of authority on the sugar plantations.
They served as homes for the planters, or attorneys who acted on behalf of the owners living in England.
The size of the houses were determined by the size and profitability of the property and the wealth of the owners.
History records over 30 Great Houses across the island.

There could be no better place to stage this event than Port Antonio Portland. This is indeed the hidden gem of Jamaica. Columbus when he landed in Discovery Bay…..,
