Any Americans know of us? We were sold as slaves by our own people in Africa, but banded together and fought two wars against the British army in the 1700's. We fought them to a standstill, and negotiated to be settled as a united people in the Caribbean, where we have prospered into a people hundreds of thousands strong.

In the Spirit of Sankofa,



"The Garifuna people forced to migrate have never forgotten their homeland St Vincent. Indeed there is linking of villages in Belize with Carib villages here.Oral history has many stories of the homeland and today many Garifuna people travel back to SVG to pay homage to the land of their origin"

Buiti rombombéyo (Good afternoon)

While we always remember Saint Vincent, we've recognized our base as Roatan in the Bay Islands, Honduras since 1797. Of course we are all around Belize (mostly Dangriga) as well as the Honduras and Nicaraguan mainland.

Much appreciated, its always better to hear/read expert testimony from someone having lived or learned the experience, directly.
