Jamaica Diaspora NE USA:
Diaspora means the scattering of people from their ethnic roots, enforced or left their traditional homeland, the dispersal of such Jamaicans, and the ensuing developments in their culture. Jamaicans can be found in the far corners of the world but the largest pools of Jamaicans exist in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, other Caribbean islands, and all across the Caribbean Coast of Central America.
