    If we do not know who we are as a people, as a culture, then where are we going? It is a systematic ploy for no one of color to know their heritage, therefore this information is vital to our existence as Garifuna people. Bless you for your informative ourstory.

      Thanks soooooooooooooo much for writing, VIATRIS! I am doing what I can for as long as I can. I have a lot to learn myself, I am happy to see that there are readers (Garifuna or Non-Garifuna) who appreciate what I am sharing. Again, thanks for the kind words. — Tio Teo
