This Rastafarian Indigenous Village Tour is a working space with Villagers who are artisans, crafts person's, musicians, and farmers whose philosophies reflect a respect and appreciation for the blessings of nature and a sense of family for each other and humanity.
Located in the cool hills of the Montego River Gardens, across the clear, bubbling stream into the lush fruited paths edged with medicinal herbs and healing plants, up into the shaded glade to the hidden village where you are welcomed by the sound of drums, to a simpler place and time.
The Rastafarian villagers strongly stand on the foundation of the principles and 'livity' of Rastafari, clean healthy living in harmony with other species on the planet, body, mind and spirit with equal rights and justice for all, one love, one heart.
Visitors are welcomed to the village to share, experience, learn, and contribute to the liberation of the spirit, experience the natural mystic of the Rastafari, and the sustainability of humanity.
Creators of the Rastafarian Village and their vision:
IION Kanaka and First Man are family and community centered indigenous healers, poets, intuitive spirituals, farmers, and motivational speakers.
Their vision is the creation of a 'New World Order' built on the teachings and awareness of His Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I and the lessons to be learned from the journey of humanity.
The environment they create is to promote positivity, heightened awareness and self discovery to bridge the gap between the present- invoking the Ancient Future.
