"We must give up the silly idea of folding our hands and waiting on God to do everything for us. If God had intended for that, then he would not have given us a mind. Whatever you want in life, you must make up your mind to do it for yourself"
rable Prophet Marcus Mosiah Garvey
The Akoma Ntoaso Tours Collective is comprised of a small network of Jamaican born residents who live permanently in the island and others who are Jamaican by birthright (of direct parentage) who reside in the country of Canada.
We offer agriculturally centered Afrocentric tours (ranging from ten days to two weeks; with options for extended stays in the island) which aim to enlighten and inform others on the resilient and unique history, heritage and culture of Jamaicans of Afrikan origin. We will be happy to welcome you to the serene and peaceful countryside of Clarendon, Jamaica.
Our special guests will have the chance to stay with Us at a quiet and discreet Jamaican owned guest house snuggled in the hills, on the Clarendon/Manchester parish border. You can be rest assured that the time you spend with Us will be an unforgettable memory to you and your family!

What is Akoma Ntoaso?
Akoma Ntoaso is an Adinkra proverb, coming from the Akans of Ghana and Ivory Coast; two major countries in West Afrika. The language of the Akan people is known as Tshi (pronounced Twi), however all Akan subgroups speak slightly different variations of the language.
The Adinkra proverbs are geometric patterns which symbolize traditional laws, values and principles of the Akan people. Akoma Ntoaso literally means "the joined or united hearts". It is a symbol of agreement, togetherness and unity, in thought and in deed. It also represents a charter. (The Akoma Ntoaso symbol is at the top of the "Akoma Tour 2017" page.)
We chose this proverb to represent Our collective because we intend to support and rebuild the rural economy in Jamaica. It is essential that we restructure the Reality of UJAMAA (Communal Economics) among one another based on the True principles of self sufficiency and entrepreneurship.
We seek to utilize Our natural resources for Our own collective empowerment and social development. Everyone else uses Jamaica's resources for their benefit, so why should we not profit over what is rightfully Ours by birthright? This is completely contrary to the values of our national heroes and is a direct insult to the legacy of the Garvey movement which began IN the island of Jamaica.
We hope to bring people together in unity, harmony and overstanding so that they will learn and develop a better appreciation for the Earth and their natural environment. We also seek to educate people about the reality of the imperialist foreign operated tourist industry in Jamaica and how much it has dis-empowered, impoverished and isolated the local population.
Our ancestors who have lived on this island for several generations are no longer here to tell their own story, but they have left a powerful and timeless Legacy that is still apart of Us All. There are also many OurStoric heritage sites on the island that speak directly on the experience of Jamaicans of Afrikan origin.
We chose a proverb coming from the region of Ghana, West Afrika because this is the location where many of our ancestors were originally from on the Continent. So We fully acknowledge the fact that West Afrikans and Black Jamaicans are direct blood relatives.
We share the same culture in several ways, that is often not recognized or understood by many because of the lack of knowledge of our shared experience. The Akoma Tours 2017 (and ongoing) aims to share, expose, educate and teach Our guests about the authentic experience of people of Afrikan origin who constitute the majority population of Jamaica today (91% to be precise). The Afrikan-Jamaican experience is a major story that has never been fully told.
We need to study & embrace the sacred wisdom teachings of indigenous peoples in order to learn to live in peace & harmony with the Earth again. Jamaica has been divinely blessed with majestic beauty, lush vegetation, remarkably pure water sources, and rare natural fauna that are unique to the Caribbean region.
We must seek to preserve the ancient cultural and ecological heritage of Jamaica by any means necessary and this is precisely what we intend to do. We encourage you to join us in our efforts! Send Us an email if you have any questions, comments or inquiries, and we will get back to you in 24 hrs. ISES and GIVE TANKS!
