Abstract:

Jamaica was an English colony for 300 years while the majority of the population were African slaves. This situation produced a syncretic indigenous Jamaican culture.

This file contains one document, a cultural summary from the Encyclopedia of World Cultures that was published in 1995. It contains information on history, economy, settlements, kinship, marriage, family, sociopolitical organization, and religion.
