        Do you know the Arzu family and their history in Guatemela? My family are from HONDURAS my grandmother was born in Guatemala. My great-grandfather after being in Belize changed his name to Johnson. How would I search for that family?

        Thanks for writing BEATRICE JOHNSON! I know a few Arzu’s from Honduras, and an Arzu or 2 in Belize through Facebook. But other than that, I am not sure. I know a Johnson from Honduras (I think) but that’s the extent of it. As you can imagine it is VERY difficult identifying Garifuna people with English last names like Johnson. At this point, perhaps the best thing is to look me up on Facebook, friend-request me (that is, if you haven’t already–I DO have a Beatrice Johnson as a friend on Facebook) and/or scan the Groups/Pages on Facebook that relate to the subject of Garifuna culture, or Garifuna people. That would be a good first step. Does that sound like a plan Beatrice?

    Very heart warming. Simply, Inspirational, intellectual and informative. One thing I can tell you about Garifuna Women, they have been influential in making decisions for the well-being of our people. In another words our strong personalities serves to empower others. It is one of those things that makes us unique.

    This was a very educational video. My respect to the young performer Carlos Gonzales and his uncle. I learned the history behind the traditional dance. People in my family perform waranagua dance. I believe that its an awesome tradition that has been keep by or Garifuna people…

    I keep coming back to this video. Very informative and touching. I hope we can continue to be multi-generational as a people; passing along our heritage to our children and receiving it from our forefathers.

      Thanks for writing DIOXI. I also hope we can do a better job as far as passing along our heritage to younger generations of Garinagu.
