3. Jamaica Culture - About
Promoting only the best in jamaica culture I often think of the many ways that Jamaica's culture differ from that of the United States.





What's does IriePeople mean? Irie " is a word, frequently used to mean cool, or easy going and may refer to an action of a person. That word describes the character of the Jamaican people. IriePeople, the web site is dedicated to providing you with timely information about the people and the culture of Jamaica. As the editor of IriePeople, I'll share with you my love for Jamaica. I was born in Port Maria, in the parish of St Mary, approximately 10 miles from one of Jamaica's bustling tourist attraction, Dunn's River Falls in Ochie Rios. In 1969, I migrated to the United States to join my mother. Even though, I was far away from Jamaica, my heart never left the island. I often think of the many ways that Jamaica's culture differ from that of the United States. This is my opportunity to share some of those differences with you.
The IriePeople Jamaican Cultural web site will show you the other side of Jamaica. It is not only a tourist resort, but also the home of 2.3 million struggling Jamaicans, which is also the home of one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

From hotel beach parties to the raw discos of the working-class suburbs, Jamaica reverberates to the soul-riveting sounds of calypso, soca (a soul-calypso fusion) and reggae. Music is everywhere. The earliest original Jamaican musical form was mento Officially English is the spoken language but in reality, Jamaica is a bilingual country and English is far more widely understood than spoken. The unofficial lingo is patois - a musical dialect with a uniquely Jamaican rhythm and cadence. Patois evolved from the Creole English and a twisted alchemy of the mother tongue peppered with African, Portuguese and Spanish terms, and Rastafarian slang. Jamaica's homegrown cuisine is a fusion of many ethnic traditions, with Arawak Indian, Spanish, African, Indian, Middle Eastern, Chinese and British influences all detectable. A typical Jamaican breakfast is ackee , a tree-grown fruit that bears an uncanny resemblance to scrambled eggs when cooked. Lunch is usually a light snack, maybe a heavily seasoned meat or vegetable pie. Main meals usually feature goat or pork, usually curried, served with rice and beans. Seafood dishes are also popular, often pickled and fried with peppers and onions. Jamaica's most popular dish is jerk , a term that describes the process of cooking meats smothered in tongue-searing marinade, and barbecued slowly in an outdoor pit over a fire of pimento wood, which gives the meat its distinctive flavor. Tea is a generic Jamaican term for any hot, brewed drink, and may be herbal, mixed with rum, milk, spices and even fish. Beware of marijuana or hallucinogenic mushroom teas, which may be more than you bargained for in an after-dinner digestive! Skyjuice is a favorite cool drink, made from shaved ice flavored with syrup. Coconut juice, straight from the nut, is also popular. Beer and rum are the most popular alcoholic drinks. Jamaican Blue Mountains coffee is among the most flavorsome in the world, but due to farcical authentication and licensing requirements, much of what is sold as the genuine article is not all it's cracked up to be.

    Culture of Jamaica Like most other countries around the world Jamaicans like to play soccer, and they also like to play a game called cricket. Cricket is played a little bit like baseball. It is a British game. A game called dominoes is also very popular. In the Jamaican style, players slam their dominoes down on a hard table. With any luck, the slamming scares the players away. It makes it harder for them to think. Then the other players can try to win the game. Jamaicans celebrate many of the holidays we do; such as New Year's, Christmas, and Easter. They also have many celebrations and holidays of their own. One special day in Jamaica is Independence Day. On this day, there are lots of and parades and music. People dance and sing merrily. Independence Day in Jamaica is a little like our Fourth of July. Jamaica has great ways to celebrate its holidays and some interesting ways to play games. Home Government Geography History ...

    Jamaica: Culture and History Whenever there is the mention of Jamaican Culture these days, people's thoughts seem to turn to Reggae music. Reggae is a refined beat of different music styles, which preceded it. There was a musical form, which was a fusion of calypso and the Cuban rhythm that originated around the turn of the twentieth century and lasted about fifty years. Ska had a very short life span with its beat, which was quicker than the Reggae beat, and its base was not as distinctive. Reggae was pushed by groups such as Toots and the Maytals, Bob Marley and Bunny of the Wailers, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, John Holt, Byron Lee and Culture just to mention a few. There are a number of Reggae tunes that convey political, social and religious messages. Some of these messages can be deemed to be revelation knowledge, but it seems as though the majority of people are interested in the beat of the music. It is widely accepted that Robert Nesta Marley, (Bob Marley) has sparked world consciousness by being both a great lyricist and one who has awakened a number of people with reference to racism, oppression and injustice all over the world. Some of these songs have expressions of praise of Jah (God).

    15. José Barreiro, A Note On Tainos: Whither Progress?
    Text article depicts the cultural History of the Taino Indians both before and after the invasion from Spain and the eventual demise of their dominance of the islands. Cuba, jamaica, Puerto Rico, Hispa±ola and other islands.
    A Note on Tainos: Whither Progress?
    Northeast Indian Quarterly, pp. 66-77
    Fall, 1990
    Author's note: An appreciation is due John Mohawk, who contributed to an early version of this article. References in the body of the text refer to the Select Bibliography which follows this article. All ilIustrations except the photograph on page 76 are taken from Onelio Jorge Cardoso, Los Indocubanos. Havana: Gente Nueva, 1982. Taino culture was dominant throughout the Caribbean, a sea and island world that was in turn cradle of Taino civilization. In agriculture, seafaring and cosmology, Ciboney and Guanahatabey (western Cuba), Macorix and/or Ciguayo (Bohio) and even Carib (Lesser Antilles) all followed the material and much of the psycho-spiritual framework of the Taino. The original Caribbeans spoke Arawak. The people of the Arawak language family still comprise one of the more widespread American Indigenous cultures, with relatively large kinship nations in the Amazon and Orinoco river basins of South America. Throughout the Caribbean, usually in remote mountain ranges and coastal promontories, remnant groups and communities of Taino-Arawak and Carib descendants survive to the present. Aspects of the animistic and material culture of the Taino-Arawak have been adopted by the mestizo populations of the Caribbean and are interwoven into the Euro-African fabric of the islands' folk universe. The word Taino meant "men of the good," and from most indications the Tainos were good. Coupled to the lush and hospitable islands over millennium, and a half, the indigenous people of "La Taina" developed a culture where the human personality was gentle. Among the Taino at the time of contact, by all accounts, generosity and kindness were dominant values. Among the Taino peoples, as with most indigenous lifeways, the physical culture was geared toward a sustainable interaction with the natural surroundings. The Taino's culture has been designated as "primitive" by western scholarship, yet it prescribed a lifeway that strove to feed all the people, and a spirituality that respected, in ceremony most of their main animal and food sources, as well as the natural forces like climate, season and weather. The Taino lived respectfully in a bountiful place and so their nature was bountiful. (Jane 1930)

    Jamaica's History
    Jamaica Historical Information:
    Jamaica was discovered by Christopher Columbus on May 4, 1494. The Spanish (who ruled the island until 1655) were the first Europeans to explore the Caribbean. They eventually settled the Greater Antilles and either killed or absorbed the Arawak Indians native to the larger islands. The Antilles held a favored position because of their proximity to gold deposits, supply of Indian labor, easy access, fertile soil, and favorable climate. The region became known for its production of sugar, coffee, spices, and tropical fruits. The importance of the Antilles declined as the Spanish advanced into the New World through Mexico and Peru, and the islands mostly became supply bases. For centuries the Caribbean was a war zone fought over by European powers - England, France, Spain, and Holland - as well as pirates. In this century, the Windward Passage became a major shipping route between the eastern United States and the Panama Canal. Back to Jamaica Information Index Page.

    Jamaica Ever since Errol Flynn cavorted here with his Hollywood pals in the 1930s and '40s, travelers have regarded Jamaica as one of the most alluring of the Caribbean islands. Its beaches, mountains and carnal red sunsets regularly appear in the world's tourist brochures, and, unlike other nearby islands, it democratically caters to all comers: you can choose a private villa with your own private beach; laugh your vacation away at a party-hearty resort; throw yourself into the thick of the island's life; or concentrate on experiencing the three Rs: reggae, reefers and rum.
