Garifuna Settlement Day celebrated in Libertad Village

Hon. Ramiro Ramirez with residents

Belize City, November 20, 2012

Annually, November 19 is recognised as the national celebration of Garifuna Settlement Day. While events are focused in the culture capital, Dangriga Town, in reality Garinagu who live in other communities such as Punta Gorda Town, Barranco, Belize City, even as far north as Libertad Village in the Corozal District, also celebrate their proud history on that day.

And from the photos we’ve seen of the celebration in the northern community of Libertad, we can tell that the Garinagu had a festive time. Libertad may soon become the culture capital up north for the Garinagu.

Residents came out to hold a cultural day, displaying traditional Garifuna clothing and wears, music and language.

With the support of their area representative, Hon. Ramiro Ramirez, the residents had a culturally-inspiring day, which further underscored the importance of their culture and the great need to preserve it for future generations.
