Queen Nanny is featured on Jamaica’s $500 bill and is the only woman declared one of Jamaica’s National Heroes.
For over 30 years she freed almost 1000 enslaved people and helped them settle into these new Maroon communities.
Nestled in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica is a small community known as Moore Town. It is also known as Nanny Maroon Town as it became home to Queen Nanny and her ancestors of the Maroons!
The Nanny defeated the British forces that enslaved them in many battles. Despite repeated attacks from the British soldiers on Grandy Nanny’s settlement which was formed in her honor and called Nanny Town, it remained under Maroon control for years with successful defenses.
Nanny of the Maroons is hailed as the true Queen of Jamaica. From the Ivory Coast in Africa, Nanny and her brothers found themselves in Jamaica during the 1800’s during a period of slavery and wars. During this time Nanny cunningly outwitted the British soldiers rescued and freed slaves and refused to sign any agreement to return run away slaves.

On this Sunday's episode of "CONTACT", Host and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist LESLEY MITCHELL-CLARKE and Co-Host and Experiencer/Contactee WES ROBERTS will be re-airing their fascinating interview with Captain Randy Cramer, a.k.a "Captain Kaye" , which was originally scheduled for broadcast on September 13th, but due to technical difficulties, was not able to be aired in full.
This will be Captain Randy Cramer’s first visit to “CONTACT”, and his first Canadian on-air interview! Captain Cramer is a nearly Life-long Experiencer/Contactee, as well as a U.S. military participant in the off-world parallel space programmes that have been taking place since the 1950’s on Mars, the Moon and elsewhere. Captain Cramer will be publishing his first book this year – which is bound to be one of the most important and significant books in contemporary UFOlogy. This Sunday’s programme has been pre-recorded, so we will not be able to take Listener calls, and the “CONTACT CHAT ROOM” will not be open.
