Are You Satisfied With The Present State Of Your Culture?
Some Garifuna are putting their self interest above the overall interest of the Garinagu people.

By: Wellington C. Ramos

This year will make 213 years
since the Garifuna people were
forcefully removed by the
British off their native land St.
Vincent and scattered throughout
other countries in the Caribbean
with their final destination being
Rotan Honduras where they
landed on April 12, 1797.
The removal occurred after
several years of resistance put
up by my people to avoid the
British from taking over our
country but in the end our brave
King Chatoyer was forced to
surrender on March 11, 1797. It
is also 187 years since my
ancestors left the shores of
Honduras to Belize after several
of their relatives were massacred
during the Honduran revolution-

ary war for independence.
Due to these experiences,
the Garinagu people are
now scattered throughout the
Caribbean, Honduras, Nicaragua,
Guatemala, Belize and the United
States. In Central America, Hon-
duras have the largest Garifuna
population with Belize in close
second place.
Our people still maintain their
culture despite all the difficult
experiences they encountered
in their past.
No matter where our people
live, their main challenge is to
maintain their culture among the
other dominant cultures in the
countries where they reside
today. In St. Vincent our native
homeland, most of our people
have lost their culture due to
decrees past by the British
against them after the takeover.
In Nicaragua only a few
Garinagu exist and the culture
is dying. In Honduras and
Guatemala, the Garinagu people
still have their culture intact
but continue to face political
oppression and they are living in
extreme poverty compared to
the other citizens in their

countries. In Belize, the Garinagu
people have made some significant
strides in upliftingthem selves inmost
areas compared to the other
countries where they live in Central
America and the Caribbean but
poverty is becoming a problem.
The United States have proven
to be fertile ground for the
Garinagu people because they
have always been an ethnic group
that prides autonomy. Many of
them are excelling in various
professions in the private sector
and with government. Some
Garinagu people yearn for the
day when their people can
return to the good old days of
being autonomous, industrious,
independent, resilient and
Many Garifuna individuals
today have indicated that
they intend to lead the struggle
on behalf of our people to
accomplish this goal. Yet, they
have not carved out a
constructive and comprehensive
plan to fulfill their promises. For
those who believe in those
individuals, I must warn them
that more accomplishments have
been made by the Garinagu
culture collectively rather than
The Garifuna individual place
strong emphasis on family
and culture. The role of their
ancestors in the upkeep and
preservation of their culture is a
major component of their
religious and cultural practices.
There will be several times in
our lifetime, when the ancestors
will empower members of our
race to carry out meaningful
activities on behalf of the
preservation of the culture. If
a Garifuna person is engaged
in cultural activities that are
geared only towards his or her
own self-interest, our ancestors
will not be pleased with those
I have now come to the
conclusion, that too much of this
is taking place in our society
today in all the communities
where Garinagu reside. My
reason for this, is because these
individuals have failed to
implement any long term plan that
will preserve the, language,
religion, customs, traditions, arts,
crafts and the other fundamental
ingredients of our culture.
The 19th of November every
year should be a moment and time
for us to re-examine what we have
done to preserve and build on our

culture throughout the entire year.
If we cannot point to any
significant gains for the year then
we wasted the entire year. We
continue to use this day for
engaging in socializing and
publicity stunts. Once the day is
over, everybody goes back to their
respective communities and
boast about the good times they
If the Garifuna people were to
set up a Trust Fund for the
preservation of their culture and
ask every Garifuna person in this
world to just give $10.00 each, it
would generate millions of
dollars that could help to build a
Garifuna Village in every
community in all societies
Garifuna people reside world-
wide. This will help to preserve
the culture and provide employ-
ment for our people to eliminate
poverty in these countries where
they reside. After all, spending the
money continually in this fashion,
has proven that we are not
making any significant gains over
the years. The time has now come,
for a different group of leaders
with vision to take us into a new
direction because there is a lack
of visionary leadership in our
communities today.
I am a Garifuna born and raised
in the culture capital of Belize in
a place called Dangriga Town. I
have relatives in; Nicaragua,
Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and
the United States who I have
shared these concerns with. Many
of them agree with me that this
issue has been brought up by
several Garifuna individuals but
nobody wants to address it. I just
hope and pray that a majority of
my people would take up this
challenge so that we can begin a
new journey.
We must consider bringing
a case against the British
Government for forcefully
removing our people out of our
native homeland St. Vincent
and scattering us all over the
Caribbean then dropping us off on
the island of Rotan Honduras like
rejected cargoes. This act on
their part is inhumane and is in
violation of International Law as
is stated in the Human Rights
Charter of the United Nations. We
deserve due compensation for the
damages caused to us, which are
the main reasons why our people
are today living in deplorable
conditions in their respective
I ask that for this year's
celebration, we ask ourselves
if we are satisfied with the state
of our culture today before we
start celebrating.

One of Two Suspected Drug

Traffickers Escaped From Police A II A

Cayo District, Wednesday,
November 10, 2010:
A Belizean laborer,
from the San Martin
area on the outskirts of
the City of Belmopan
was today charged for
drug trafficking in San

Information reaching
us indicate that at around
8:00 p.m. on November
8, a lone policeman was
driving his personal
vehicle en route to Santa
Familia from San Ignacio
when upon reaching near
the Branch Community
his attention was drawn to
two suspicious persons
riding ahead of him on
two separate bicycles.
Upon approaching, one
of them carrying a black
knapsack sped off and
took the bag off his back
and threw it into nearby
bushes after which he
returned to the other
one who pretended to be
fixing his bicycle. The
police stopped the vehicle
and upon questioning them
they identified themselves
as Jose Jiron, 27, Belizean
laborer from Teakettle Village
and Edwin Paula, 26, Belizean
laborer residing at #124 St.
Mathew Street, San Martin,
The policeman called for
backup from the officer
stationed in Santa Familia
who arrived shortly thereafter.
In the presence of the two
detainees the two policemen
found the black knapsack
containing two compressed
tape wrapped parcels which
when opened were both found
to contain suspected marijuana.
Additional backup was
requested from the Quick
Response Team arriving
shortly thereafter in the police
mobile. Both detainers were
subsequently placed in the
police vehicle for the ride to the
San Ignacio police station.
Upon slowing down at a pedes-
trian crossing at the entrance to

weighed in at 1360 grams all for
a total of 2,267 grams. Paula
was subsequently arrested and
charged for drug trafficking
while up to press time Jose Jiron
remains at large.
Paula appeared in San
Ignacio's Magistrate Court on
Wednesday, November 10,
where he pleaded not guilty to
the drug trafficking charge. The

Volunteers Emily White and

youth members of the

chance to discuss what a

the good men in our lives.
The group talked about how
it's important to recognize and
respect the men we know who
are leading good lives. Much of

the time we focus on women
and children and forget to
appreciate the men who are

The website promoting this
international day of recognition
states that, "International
Men's Day began on
November 19th 1999 in
Trinidad and Tobago and was
supported by the United
Nations. The event received
wide support from men's
groups in USA, Europe, Africa,
Asia and the Caribbean.
This is an excellent idea and
would give some gender
balance. Objectives of Interna-
tional Men's Day include a
focus on men's and boy's
health, improving gender
relations,promoting gender
equality and highlighting
positive male role models. It is
an occasion for me to celebrate
their achievements and
contributions, in particular
for their contributions to
