Join us on Sunday to find out more about the Garifuna people and celebrate the African History Month. The 3rd conference will be focusing on the Garifuna Intellectuals from Honduras, Belize, Guatemala ,St. Vincent and Grenadines and the United States.
The Garifuna mainly live on the coast but are also very present in towns and villages. Some Garifuna live alongside the Creole population in the main towns. Garifuna communities live mainly on agriculture, fishing and foreign remittances sent by relatives abroad. Some are also involved in the technical trades. Garifuna who live in the rural areas mainly pursue a subsistence lifestyle, while those in the urban areas live similarly to their Creole neighbors, pursuing professional occupations.
