@Diane: I found it. His name was Dutty Boukman. He was born in Jamaica but got transferred to a plantation in Haiti. He was a houngan (voodoo priest) and he became the leader of the maroons. He's the one who led the famous ceremony at Bois-Caiman where slaves swore to fight or die

We have a Savings Law Clause in our Constitutions, so many old slave laws were saved like vagrancy and outlawing the practice of obeah. And they are a B!TCH to change. hell the cops will dust them off at times like they did last year with the windshield wipers at the lights SMDH, it was a necessary evil though
 
JP find him please.
 
I knew she was Caribbean from long time and she's right (karinne) but since we are all Americans thanks to Amerigo Vespucci It depends on the viewpoint you are taking.
 
Under Chapter two of the Jamaican Constitution, persons born in Jamaica and persons born outside Jamaica of Jamaican parents have an automatic right to Jamaican citizenship. So that's another thing to consider.
 
ETA You can have dual citizenship in Jamaica which further complicates things
 
JP how you never hear the phrase Jamerican? LOL in the 1990s when dancehall was hot in the USA up came a group of first generation Jamaicans born in the US to Jamaican immigrant parents, called Born Jamericans. * I send you my love with a dozen roses*
 
NB Any bad behaving Jamaican who lives in the USA for more than 3 months (legal or otherwise) is oonu (your) people no fcuks, not claiming those clowns at all

My family is from Dominica (not the Dominican Republic), which has the highest population of Carib Indians in the  world, so my parents said in school they focused a lot on that since I guess it was a source of pride that so many indigenous people survived after Columbus, but they also learned of slavery throughout the islands.

marginalized people are people who are generally ignored or deemed insignificant members of a society. We dont "fit in" anywhere, no where to truly call home
