Gail Tomlinson - Tour guide: "They are more into the 'bling bling' lifestyle and not our Maroon tradition. It is only when it comes to our January 6 celebration that they take more of an interest in it."

Oral Chambers - Tour operator: "They are very much into the 'bling bling', because I am here in the community and seeing what is happening. The 'fast movement' lifestyle is the everyday situation."

Tyrone Huggins - Farmer: "We still have many in the younger generation who are very interested in the culture of Accompong and its preservation."
