Queen Nanny in the classroom

Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess was created to shed light on one of the most celebrated but least recognized heroines in the resistance history of the New World. Her story is one of triumph against incredible odds. She led her people to victory against the mighty British Army in early to mid-eighteenth in the interior of Jamaica.

Maroons and their descendants have maintained a continuous presence in this island nation for more than three hundred years; living on the same treaty lands gained as a result of their epic 80-year plus battle with the vaunted British military. Their African-based language, culture and governance are still very much alive today, due in no small part to the heroic efforts of Queen Nanny and other Maroon leaders like her. To this end we have designed a Discussion Guide to foster greater understanding and give a better insight into the story of this larger than life persona, her achievements, and legacy she has left not only for Jamaican women, but for all others around the world.

This film and corresponding Discussion Guide will assist educators and group leaders, or any other person in charge of presenting lectures, workshops, seminars and discussions on marronage in formal educational settings
