|Bobo Shanti - the name is derived from Bobo, which stands for Black, and Ashanti, a tribe from Ghana. It is believed |
most of the slaves brought to Jamaica were from the Ashanti tribe. Prince Emanuel Charles Edwards founded the
Bobo Shanti order in Jamaica in the 1950s. He, along with his descendants and Haile Selassie, are seen as gods.
Marcus Garvey is regarded as a prophet. The Bobo Shanti also believe black people should be compensated financially
for slavery. They wear long robes and very tightly wrapped turbans, and avoid eating salt and oil.
