A Rastafari Indigenous Village In Montego Bay, Jamaica
Edibles Magazine|Issue 59 - The Travel Issue
On one of our last days visiting Jamaica we had the extreme pleasure of visiting The Rastafari Indigenous Village.
Patrick Ian Moore

Located just outside Montego Bay, Rastafari Indigenous Village is a living cultural center that offers an opportunity to experience the Rastafari way of life. Whether you choose a half or full-day tour, you'll have the unique opportunity to connect with Rastafarians, and learn more about their culture and values. You'll be introduced to drum makers who create traditional drums by hand, using techniques that have been passed down through generations and you can tour an organic vegetable and herb garden and learn more about why the Rastafari choose to follow a vegan diet, and what the benefits are. You can then have a meal with the Rastafari, and taste for yourself. A small gift shop offers traditional handicrafts and jewelry. The tour concludes with a performance of traditional drumming and singing in the center of the village. Drumming and chanting ceremonies are an important ritual in the elevation to the spiritual world of Rastafari. The Rastafari village was created 10 years ago as a cultural sharing center, healing ground, and sanctuary.
