We, in the Caribbean, may not dare to dream to change the
world but we can dream to change our world. Our world of the
Caribbean which we can mould according to our heart's desire.

We can give ourselves an opportunity to think on our history,
not like the feckless old maid who lives merely to tell you of
better days, but as a people proud of what is past, identifying our
heroes.

We must be a people prepared to achieve the excellence of
those who went before, putting a stamp on this part of the world
which will be peculiar to us. And from here we will teach and tell
people of the Caribbean and not from the capitals of the
industrialized world............. /


Let me welcome you on behalf of the little Republic of
Guyana, on behalf of the little men of Guyana. Let me th nk
you, those of you who have come from across the seas, for
coming.

Let me thank also the little men who have made this possible;
the little men who worked night and day and without such
sophisticated props as sedatives, who worked, hour after hour in
the sun and the dew; the carpenters, the plumbers, the masons
and those who swept the tarmac. Let me thank them, for without
them this could never have been.

Let me, too remind my comrades here, the artists, whether
they are painters or writers, dancers or sculptors, that w
hope they will portray actively and accurately to the world is
culture of THE LITTLE MAN.'


Extracts from the speech made by the Prime iSiis orn
L.F.S. Burnham, on the occasion of the openinV arff
