What is Grum Ma’s House Cultural Center?
Grum Ma’s House Cultural Center comes from the plan of Parliament Square Cultural Center which was established to provide Bahamian culture and cuisine to both residents and guests to the island of Freeport, Grand Bahama. This is an interactive approach that expands the typical tour experience above the others. The word “Grum Ma” is how Bahamians refer to their Grandma’s and is a tribute to our own Great Grum Ma Beatrice. She was a Black Seminole Indian who married a Bahamian and embodied the rich culture and diverse heritage that many Bahamians have. This is matched by another Cherokee Grandmother and two Scottish Grandfathers. The Bahamas are a salad bowl of cultures!
