Queen Nanny is credited with being the military leader of the Windward Maroons who guided the Maroons through the most intense period of their resistance against the British, between 1725 and 1740.  Queen Nanny is presumed to have been born around the 1680’s in Africa’s Gold Coast (now known as Ghana).  She was reported to belong to either the Ashanti or Akan tribe and came to Jamaica as a free woman.  She united the Maroons across Jamaica and played a major role in the preservation of African culture and knowledge.  The Windward Maroons with Queen Nanny as their leader are a role model for resistance, rebellion and survival.  Queen Nanny herself is a symbolic figure for all those who suffer from oppression.
