The motto on Jamaica's coat of arms, "Out of Many, One People," reflects the diversity of cultures that is Jamaica today. Jamaica the people follows the island's history from colony to independence and beyond. Fabulous images and special spreads on food and life in a Maroon village show a side of Jamaica not depicted in tourist pamphlets.
