The Caribbean island of Dominica is often confused with the Dominican Republic or simply forgotten about altogether, but it is a place that has its own unique charm. Its known as the Nature Island because of its amazing environment, but its also home to one of the last groups of Carib Indians, the Caribbeans indigenous people. The Caribs lived here before Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas. Since then, their numbers have dwindled to almost zero in much of the region because of years of brutal treatment from the Spanish, French and British – but in Dominica, hope remains. In the early 20th century, when only about 500 Caribs were left, a 3700 acre territory was established for them on the islands east coast. Now they number around 3000. This video looks at the effect tourism has on Carib culture.

good point

Shaquille Albertus says:

Yeah but if the kaliango stil lmaking babies together, isn’t that sort of
incest? I mean, there are like 3000 kalinago’s in the carib territory in
Dominica, they are all related in some sort of way, because they can’t
marry non-kalinagos? Their ‘blood’ is already ‘destroyed’ because alot of
them are mixed with black.

budfr says:

CURSED?? NO, NIGGERS ARE. WHITE AMERICANS HATE YOU MORE THAN ANYONE. THE
WORLD HATES YOU, THAT´S WHY YOU WERE SLAVES. HEY, MEXICANS HAD SLAVES BE
THANKFUL THAT WE FREED YOUR BLACK ASSES. I AM HERE BECAUSE I AM SAYING THE
TRUTH ABOUT NIGGERS. RETURN TO AFRICA, CHIMPANZEE.

Shaquille Albertus says:

Oh yeah, and btw the natives didnt hate the africans when they were shipped
to the caribbean, the Kalinagos and Arawaks did intermixed with the
africans, they saw each other as ‘brothers’ and they had something in
common, they both hated white devils.

Bwahaha stfu you are proud of the heritage of the men who raped your great
grandmother pathetic little spic.

*H&B* says:

Man…i wish there was something like that in my island Martinique
eventhough i’m not dominican i feel like there’s a connection because i’m
also carib mixed with african, european and chinese roots. So im proud with
what they’re doing because they are honoring our ancestors.

Proudly West-Indian says:

Nice I am from the sister island of dominica which is St.lucia ! im of
Amerindian descent also black european and east indian !! thats really nice
keeping the culture alive i wish they could do that in all the islands !!
but e still have some of their culutre within ours so Vive amerindians !!

Proudly West-Indian says:

And also in the caribbean people tend to mix Amerindians people with East
indians :/ so again

Jennifer McGregg (JMac) says:

What part of St Lucia are u from ?

Proudly West-Indian says:

+Jennifer McGregg castries/ i live at pavee 🙂

Jennifer McGregg (JMac) says:

My grandmother is St Lucian and told me her father’s family were st Lucian
Caribs . Whereas, her grandmother was from India and mother was half Indian
and Carib.
Black historians like to say the native Caribbeans were wipe out during
‘slavery’ in the ‘west indies’ but that’s not true. 

Ava Lawrence says:

Why did u put slavery in quotations?

Jennifer McGregg (JMac) says:

+Ava Lawrence​ I don’t like using the words slaves and slavery to describe
what happened to my ancestors. I don’t think the word slavery fully
describes what happened to our ancestors. Black people were never slaves.

Having a Dominican father of Carib descent and living in the UK, I’m glad
to hear that people are becoming more interested in the Caribbean, when I’m
at school and I say I’m from Dominica people go “Where’s that?”. It’s nice
to know people are learning and experiencing 

17sunnyhour says:

“wheres that”? Are you joking me? Dominica is a popular Island to visit. I
am sure the crime rate is low so that will attract more tourism.

Franklyn Bell says:

my family tree is from there

C.J. Love says:

I heard these ppl ate other humans, they were savages.

C.J. Love says:

+Troy M Kick rocks, go look up their history on Google.

Troy M says:

+C.J. Love It’s a classic case of white people jumping to conclusions when
they don’t understand the culture of others. Caribs didn’t eat other people
they had rituals related to the eating of their enemies but it was purely
symbolic. Christopher Coloumbus and other historian didn’t understand what
they we’re seeing and casted it off as cannibalism. Typical white people
quick to judge without finding out the facts.

Claims of the practice were based on European misconceptions. Historical
Anthropologist, Nicola Foote, asserts that there is ‘no firm evidence that
cannibalism ever existed.’

Livelife ToMax says:

+Troy M You are correct. Thank you for educating that ignorant fool.

Sathandra Camplin says:

I think my roots possibly be gone from there but I’m not too sure
