New York City Mayor Meets

With Garifuna Community

By: Wellington C. Ramos

After extensive planning by the
Garifuna Coalition U.S.A. its
President Jose Francisco Avila
and the Hondurefios Contra El
SIDA President, Mrs. Mirtha
Colon, the Garifuna community
had the opportunity to meet with
New York City Mayor Michael
Bloomberg yesterday July 14,
2010 at Lincoln Hospital
Auditorium in the Bronx.
The Town Hall style meeting
was primarily to discuss issues
of concern to them.
Also at the meeting were the
Mayor's Commissioners for all
the various city departments as
well as the President of the
United Garifuna Association
Mr. Alfonso Cayetano the
oldest Garifuna association in
New York City which recently
reopened its cultural "Wabatou"
meaning "our house" at 202-A
Pennsylvania Avenue in
Brooklyn along with the
Chairman of the Garifuna
Celebration Mass Committee
Mrs. Rosita Alvarez, the
Counsel for the Honduran
Government in New York City
and other distinguished guest.
The auditorium was packed to
capacity with standing space
The Garifuna people are a
mixture of African and Carib
Indian descent that acculturated
with each other on the island of
St. Vincent in the early 1600's.
According to history, there was
a shipwreck with slaves who
were headed to some island in
the Caribbean and the slaves
swam ashore this neighboring
island to save their lives and
escape from captivity. They
secretly hid in the caves from the
Europeans and the native Carib
Indians until they were sighted.
In the beginning war erupted
between these two groups but the

Caribs became impressed with
these Africans fighting skills and
later welcomed them on the
island and the acculturation
process began.
It is hard to tell which African
ethnic group the Garifuna
people derived from but there
are similarities with the Yoruba.
The Carib Indians were in the
habit of conducting slave raids
from the French and British who
occupied other neighboring
islands and brought them to their
island which increased the
acculturation with other African
ethnic groups.
The language that they speak
is a mixture of Carib, African
and French. The French were the
first Europeans to sight Black
people on this island. The French
attempted to take this island
away by trying to convert them
into Christianity but they
resisted and drove the French off
the island.
The British came behind the
French and several wars
occurred between these two
groups until finally on March 11,
1797 they were conquered and
interned on the island of
Baliceaux and subsequently
taken as prisoners of war to
several islands and the rest
dropped off on the island of
Roatan in Honduras on April
12th, 1797.
The Garifuna people hated this
island due the lack of fertility of
the soil to grow their food crops
and they sought permission to
occupy other lands along the
coastline of Honduras.
In Honduras the Spanish
changed their names to Spanish
names and they left in mass
numbers during the revolution-
ary wars in the 1800's to
Nicaragua, Guatemala and
Belize where they reside up to
this day.
Most of the Garifuna people
in the world live in the United
States, followed by Honduras
then Belize.
The word Garifuna is mostly
used to describe an individual
and Garinagu for more than one
person or group. The British had
promised these people that they
were going to take them to a
better place not knowing that
they were being exiled from their
homeland "Yuremei". No

matter where they live, they are
closely related to each other and
maintain ongoing relationship
among themselves with their
culture intact despite their
difficult experiences up to this
The Garifuna people are;
warriors, resilient, autonomous,
independent and spiritual. They
are always committed to their
culture and family and will do
anything to preserve their rich
culture. Along with their Carib
brothers and sisters they fought
many wars against the Spanish,
French and British to avoid
European domination.
The welcome address during
the town meeting was delivered
by Mrs. Mirtha Colon. She
started off by thanking Mayor
Bloomberg for taking the
time out to come with his
Commissioners to listen to the
concerns of her people. She also
encouraged her people to take
the opportunity to address all the
issues that are of major concern
to them in the Garifuna commu-
nity. After her welcome address,
she introduced the President of
the Garifuna Coalition U.S.A.
Mr. Jose Avila the designated
Master of Ceremonies for the
event. Mr Avila then proceeded
to introduce Mayor Bloomberg
who stepped to the podium and
was welcomed with great
applause by the audience.
The Mayor thanked the
associations for inviting him to
the event and he said thank you
in the Spanish and Garifuna
languages. He joked about his
problem learning Spanish and
said that Garifuna would be
much more difficult for him to
Most Garifuna people speak
two to three languages in
addition to their native tongue
because of their interactions with
people from various cultures in
the countries where they
originally came from in St.
Vincent and Central America.
Mayor Bloomberg went on
by thanking the Garifuna
community for playing a vital an
integral part in the daily growth
of New York City which is
known for its richness in cultural
diversity. He also spoke about
the hard economic times facing
the city. However, he reminded

the audience that New York City
residents are tough and fighting
people and if they could have
rebounded from the attack of
911, they will be able to recover
from this economic crisis we are
currently experiencing. He
outlined some of the programs
that his administration has
embarked on to; create jobs,
reduce crime, lower taxes and
other areas to make life easier for
New York City residents.
After the Mayor's speech the
floor was opened for questions
and the audience took full
advantage of the questioning.
The questions had to do with
issues concerning; education,
housing, immigration, crime,
rent, HIV Aids, employment, a
cultural center for the Garifuna
people through the Mayor 's
office, the declaration of 19th
of November as Garifuna
Settlement Day, business
assistance, telemarketing and
collection harassment from
businesses and promises made to
the Garifuna community by the
Dinkins administration. The
Mayor answered most of the
questions and for those he had
little or know knowledge about,
he directed the questions to the
Commissioners that dealt with
the respective areas. The
Mayor pledged that he will do
something as soon as he returns
to his office to make sure that
his administration puts in motion
all the issues that are of concern
to the Garifuna community here
in New York City.
The last Town Hall
Meeting that was held with the
Garifuna community was in
1991 when Mayor David
Dinkins the first Black Mayor
was in office nineteen years ago
shortly after the Happyland fire
that took many Garinagu
people's lives.
The Garifuna community was
thankful to Mayor Bloomberg
for coming to the meeting
and gave him a Garifuna
drum as a gift. The Mayor
happily played the Garifuna
drum and waved the audience
It is now left to these two
associations who sponsored
this event, to seek out all the
other Garifuna associations in
New York City and work with
them hand in hand as brothers
and sisters to accomplish all
their goals and ensure that the
Mayor's promises are fulfilled.

Was He Coming To Repair Or To
Burglarize The Police Station?
Thursday, July 15, 2010:
He is not known as a contractor or a carpenter, it was
nearing midnight and based on the fact that no requisition
was submitted for repairs to the police station, law
enforcement officials can only conclude that he came with
intention to burglarize the station.
At around 11:30 pm on Wednesday, July 14, an alert
Police Constable #976 Arthur Young heard some noise
coming from the lower flat of the Roaring Creek Police
Station where he is posted.
Armed with the regulation 9 mm pistol, PC Young
ventured downstairs to check the source of the
commotion when he came upon Mark Diaz, a known
resident of the Village, acting suspiciously inside the
station yard.
PC Young ordered Diaz to freeze and when he did not
heed the order, the constable fired a single warning shot
into the air. Ignoring the warning, Diaz reportedly
proceeded to reach for something from the back pocket
of the pants he was wearing.
Fearing for his life PC Young fired a second shot which
caught Diaz on the right foot causing him to fall to the
ground. PC Young proceeded to search the injured man
and found him armed with a hammer with metal handle.
The injured Mark Diaz was immediately transported to
the Western Regional Hospital in Belmopan for treatment.
Subsequent checks revealed that one of the louvers from
a window on the lower flat of the building was pried open.
Police investigation continues.

One day a man saw an old lady,
stranded on the side of the road, but
even in the dim light of day, he could
see she needed help. So he pulled
up in front of her Mercedes and
got out. His Pontiac was still
sputtering when he approached her.
Even with the smile on his face,
she was worried. No one had
stopped to help for the last hour or
so. Was he going to hurt her? He
didn't look safe; he looked poor and
He could see that she was
frightened, standing out there in the
cold. He knew how she felt. It was
that chill which only fear can put in
He said, "I'm here to help you,
ma'am. Why don't you wait in
the car where it's warm? By the
way, my name is Bryan
Well, all she had was a flat tire,
but for an old lady, that was bad
enough. Bryan crawled under the
car looking for a place to put the
jack, skinning his knuckles a time
or two. Soon he was able to change
the tire. But he had to get dirty and
his hands hurt.
As he was tightening up the lug
nuts, she rolled down the window
and began to talk to him. She told
him that she was from St. Louis and
was only just passing through. She
couldn't thank him enough for
coming to her aid.
Bryan just smiled as he closed her
trunk. The lady asked how much
she owed him. Any amount would
have been all right with her. She
already imagined all the awful things
that could have happened had he
not stopped. Bryan never thought
twice about being paid. This was
not a job to him. This was helping
someone in need, and God knows
there were plenty, who had given
him a hand in the past. He had lived
his whole life that way, and it never
occurred to him to act any other
He told her that if she really
wanted to pay him back, the next
time she saw someone who needed
help, she could give that person the
assistance they needed, and Bryan
added, "And think of me."
He waited until she started her car
and drove off. It had been a cold
and depressing day, but he felt
good as he headed for home,
disappearing into the twilight.
A few miles down the road the
lady saw a small cafe. She went in

looking restaurant. Outside were
two old gas pumps. The whole
scene was unfamiliar to her. The
waitress came over and brought a
clean towel to wipe her wet hair.
She had a sweet smile, one that even
being on her feet for the whole day
couldn't erase. The lady noticed that
the waitress was nearly eight
months pregnant, but she never let
the strain and aches change her
attitude. The old lady wondered
how someone who had so little
could be so giving to a stranger.
Then she remembered Bryan.
After the lady finished her meal,
she paid with a hundred dollar bill.
The waitress quickly went to get
change for her hundred dollar bill,
but the old lady had slipped right
out the door. She was gone by the
time the waitress came back. The
waitress wondered where the lady
could be. Then she noticed
something written on the napkin.
There were tears in her eyes when
she read what the lady wrote: 'You
don't owe me anything. I have
been there too. Somebody once
helped me out, the way I'm
helping you. If you really want to
pay me back, here is what you do:
Do not let this chain of love end
with you.'
Under the napkin were four more
$100 bills.
Well, there were tables to clear,
sugar bowls to fill, and people to
serve, but the waitress made it
through another day. That night
when she got home from work and
climbed into bed, she was thinking
about the money and what the lady
had written. How could the lady
have known how much she and her
husband needed it? With the baby
due next month, it was going to be
She knew how worried her
husband was, and as he lay
sleeping next to her, she gave him a
soft kiss and whispered soft and
low, "Everything's going to be all
right. I love you, Bryan

The body, clad in a pair of blue
jeans short pants, long sleeve
black shirt with white stripes and
a pair of black slippers, was later
transported to the San Ignacio
Community Hospital where
upon arrival at 7:30 a.m. it was
officially pronounced dead by
Dr. Fidel Cuellar the medical
officer on duty at the time.
The legally required post
mortem examination was
conducted by Dr. Armando
Bentancourt between 2:20 and
2:55 p.m. on Wednesday,
July 14, at the San Ignacio
Community Hospital. Dr.
Betancourt certified the "cause
of death to be intra-craneal and
intra-celebral as a consequence
of gunshot wound to the right
side of the head." The single
bullet is said to have entered
through the right temple and
exited on the other side
producing almost instant death.
Investigators are still attempting
to determine where he might
have gotten the gun as the
family is said not to be holders
of any type of licensed firearm.
Preliminary investigation
revealed that the mother
reportedly last saw her son
alive at around 10:30 p.m. the
previous night when he came
home from his shift at Hode's
place in San Ignacio where he
had been working for over three

in the family vehicle and the
time of his return could not be
ascertained. However, police
informed that a member of the
family is said to have heard the
sound of a single gunshot
during the early morning hours
and that it might have been
dismissed as probably someone
hunting in the area. It was
not until at around 5:30 a.m.
when the mother woke up and
reportedly saw the front door of
the house opened. It was
whilst investigating this unusual
occurrence that she reportedly
looked straight ahead and saw
the body on the ground under the
The mother's worst nightmare
was realized when she noted that
it was the motionless body of her
son, bleeding from an injury to
the head. She immediately
rushed back into the house where
she alerted her husband and
other relatives of the discovery.
It is reported, that Martin had
been going through a stormy
relationship with a girlfriend of
over five years and that there
were instances when the
relationship would plunge him
into a state of depression.
Realizing this condition, his
parents are said to have sought
professional assistance in the
form of enlisting the services
of Belize's only psychiatric
medical professional, Dr.
Claudina Cayetano.
