rable Prophet Marcus Mosiah Garvey
Akoma Ntoaso Tours will be happy to welcome you to the serene countryside of Manchester, Jamaica. We specialize in Afurakan-centered cultural tours of Jamaica, which aims to share and expose the rich cultural legacy and proud heritage of Jamaicans of Afurakan origin.
What is Akoma Ntoaso?
Akoma Ntoaso is an Adinkra proverb, coming from the Akans of Ghana and Ivory Coast; two major countries in West Afuraka. The language of the Akan people is called Twi, however all Akan subgroups speak slightly different variations of the language.
We also aim to bring Our people together in unity, harmony and overstanding so that they will learn and develop a better appreciation for the struggles, sacrifices and obstacles that Our ancestors endured and overcame in the Caribbean region, specifically Jamaica.
We chose a proverb coming from the region of Ghana, West Afuraka because this is the location where many of our ancestors were stolen from and sold to Jamaica. So We fully acknowledge that West Afurakans and Jamaicans of Afurakan origin, are direct relatives.
We now know & recognize that the Arawak/Taino people of Jamaica were of Afurakan origin themselves. We must recognize & accept that ALL the Caribbean islands are apart of Our ancient indigenous territory. We truly did "come before Columbus" as Our honorable warrior scholar/Jegna Baba John Henrik Clarke had taught Us, over a generation ago.
Our friendly and helpful staff will make sure you have a safe, comfortable and enjoyable stay in Jamaica. It's Our mission to help you feel at home while you stay with Us!
