Spiritual practices such as Obeah in the Bahamas and various parts of the West Indies, Santeria in Cuba, Vodun in Haiti, and Rastafari in Jamaica are all African-influenced spiritual movements that have a Caribbean origin BUT a worldwide following.

During the first era of slavery in the Caribbean, Creole languages came about - making them nearly 200 hundred years old.

According to the Guinness Book of Records – There are more churches per square mile in Jamaica (1,600 in total) than in any other country in the world.

Each of the islands and countries of the Caribbean have a unique and distinctive cultural identity – this can be attributed to the early European colonists, African slave trade, as well as indigenous Indian tribes.
