Plans for a Virtual Nineteenth Celebration

Sebastian Cayetano

Activities for this year will include an ecumenical service in Dangriga which is preceded by a re-enactment of the arrival of the Garinagu.


Sebastian Cayetano, Garifuna Activist/Historian

“Where it comes to the city, everything here in the city will be happening virtually.  There will be a mass, they will have the re-enactment and of course we will have one ceremony, the ceremony that is going to be broadcasted from Dangriga.  The only Yurumein will also happen in Dangriga.  So there are restrictions on most of the other activities, you know, and again it‘s in compliance with the laws of the state, only ten people can gather and NGC is strongly adhering to the laws of the state, no gathering whatsoever, wash our hands, wear our masks and sanitize.  That is what we intend to do, that is what we want to do. We look forward to hearing our guest speaker.  Tomorrow we hope to have two guest speakers, we have a lawyer, former magistrate Patricia Arana and I am told we will also have Dr. Louis Zabaneh as our guest speaker.  I suppose he will be speaking on behalf of the new government and we look forward to hearing these people.”
