Dangriga, Belize (PRWEB) November 15, 2013
Garifuna Settlement Day is an important time of celebration throughout Belize for the Garifuna people. This special day marks the arrival of the first Garifuna in 1832, descendants of Africans, Caribs, and Arawaks who were first deported by the British from the Caribbean island of St. Vincent in 1797. ‘Settlement Day’, as it is known locally in Dangriga, showcases the unique Garifuna culture with a staging of the first arrival by boat to the shores of Belize by the settlers. The Festivities include parades, street music, drumming, and traditional dancing.
