Michael Thompson, “Queen Nanny—Freedom Fighter,” 2009

The years 1728 to 1740 represent Queen Nanny’s reign as leader of the [Jamaican] maroons. The roles this revolutionary woman played in the struggle against the British included warrior, general, and spiritual leader. As a priestess, or obeah woman, she was considered to have spiritual and supernatural powers and the capacity to perform miracles. As a military strategist she was one of the greatest planners of successful maroon raids, ambushes and counterattacks.
