Our Rich Culture at Ahhh Ras Natango Gallery and Garden Tour, Jamaica. Ahhh… highlights our culture and way of life. The most valuable asset in our culture and heritage is indeed our people. Our motto says it best ”Out of many one people.” Over 90% of our population is descendants of African slaves. Indentured workers from India and China along with other nationalities make up the other percentages.
