St. Vincent belongs to the Windward-Islands and it is located in the north of Trinidad and Tobago. The volcanic island lies north of the small island Bequia, which is strongly influenced by whaling.
Because of its diverse flora and fauna, the Caribbean Island Dominica is also known as the "nature island". Diseases are cured traditionally by herbs growing here.

St Vincent and the Grenadines are in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. The natives are the descendants of the caribs, which immigrated from Venezuela. St. Vincent is a volcanic Island and forms with forty other islands the island state St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
1498 Christopher Columbus arrived in St. Vincent where the Caribs lived. It remained very long uncolonised It was occupied by the British in the 18th century.
Whale hunting was an important part of the local economy. Today there is an agreement with greenpeace to hunt four Humpback whales a year for the own consumption.

Life in Roseau, the capital of Dominica, is much more hectic. It has the unofficial name “The Nature Island”. Domenica is very mountainous and has a lot of rivers and waterfalls. Chistopher Columbus did not set a food on the island, but gave her its name from “Domingo”, Sunday. Dominica was the last island colonised by the Europeans because of the resistance of the caribs. Herbs are used for healing, the very traditional medical knowledge is transmitted from generation to generation. Canoes are constructed from a single treetrunk.

St Vincent and Domenica have the only Carib reservations in the whole Caribbean. It is here that the descendants of the people who gave the name to the region continued to live.They are the last reminents who long resisted the colonial ambition of the European and never allowed to be enslaved

Caribbean Moments shows a different side to the Caribbean. Everyone visualises sand, sunshine and palm trees – but hardly anyone really discovers what lies behind them. In fact an unbelievable variety of cultures, music and religions has developed as a result of the different influences – African, Indian, English, French and authentically Caribbean.

This documentary series attempts to portray the people – be they the Rastas, who have a lot to say about their mission, the Amerindians in Trinidad, who still have their own Queen, or the Black Caribs – a mixture of escaped slaves and Caribs.

In addition, of course, there’s a huge variety of music: steelpan, parang, calypso, soca and chutney soca shape Trinidad, whilst other islands are especially scenically beautiful, such as Dominica, which is actually a single rain forest and which seduces with its abundant vegetation. Here too are the true Caribs, who occupy themselves with traditional boat building in the same way as their ancestors did centuries ago.

The films were produced in 6 parts to create a documentary series that shows what lies beneath the surface.

Actually, St. Vincent and the Grenadines belongs to the Windward Islands.

Thank you for your comment!

Lea Boicel says:

Nice doc, but there are some glaring mistakes in the voice-over. For
example, Dominica is pronounced “dom-min-EE-ka” not, “‘dum-inica”, and
Kalinago is pronounced “Kali-nago” and not, “Ka-lingo”! Other than that,
it’s very nicely done and well presented.

Delmance Francis says:

lololol

Leonard Guy says:

+Lea Boicel Your so picky lol, words and name change every generation.. no
big deal

Diamxnd Sphynx says:

Its not being picky its correcting the wrong pronunciation of a country and
the people who inhabit it. Since this is a documentary fats and things said
in it need to be correct. If we called America “Baby britain” that wouldnt
be correct would it?

Diamxnd Sphynx says:

facts:

2gogols says:

I don’t think the garifuna are African at all, I think they found negroes
on all those islands already and now they just trying to write these
people’s history away. I mean the Caribbean is soooo black no way you gonna
tell me they whipped out all those indians to bring another race of people
who ain’t while to live on the land, they probably brought a few Africans
over, but I bet the majority of the blacks on those islands have always
been there.

2gogols says:

+anonymous native Lol monkey heads and jaguar, you funny, look man the
conquistadors said they say negroes here simple as that. Floyd May weather
not knowing how to read ain’t got nothing to do with nothing, I checked out
3 other sources that state that the skull ain’t got native American
features. I done here have a nice day

Constantine Aze says:

the Tainos are more widespread in the Caribbean

marioriospinot says:

Nice.

anonymous native says:

The natives of the Caribbean are here to stay thank god.

briantravelman says:

Interesting. I didn’t know there were Caribs outside of Dominica, but what
they said about them is not true. Defensive my butt! Yes, they defended
themselves against Colonialists, which is understandable, but before the
Colonists arrived, the Caribs went to all the Caribbean islands, and killed
off the “peaceful” Arawaks, for no reason, other than wanting to take over
the islands. Sounds familiar. They would tie their enemies to trunk of the
Manchineel Tree, to ensure a slow and painful death, or they would eat
them. They were no better than those Colonialists. Maybe even more brutal.

That being said, these islands are a perfect example of what the Caribbean
was like, before mass tourism took over.
I disagree that there is nothing to do on Bequia. There is stuff to do,
just not a lot. But it is the most interesting of the Grenadine islands.
Wished they delved more into the natural wonders, and historic sites of the
islands.

Giselle Thomas says:

Trinidad and Tobago also had a great Carib and Arawak tribes as well before
slaves were brought in from Africa and Indian.

briantravelman says:

Trinidad doesn’t surprise me, being how close it is to Venezuela.

Queenkim VINCYgyal784 says:

exactly the Grenadines have much to do, idk who they spoke too, and in
st.vincent you can find many caribs on both sides of the country / & alot
of us are mix on the island, I myself is mix , places like st.vincent&
Dominica are some of the few islands that are still unspoilt.

Tecumseh Sherman says:

THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT CARIBS…..THEY ARE BLACKS. AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN
SEE THIS?? ONLY ONE OR TWO LOOK INDIAN.

hazel estrella says:

ignorant statement!

hazel estrella says:

That was a completely ignorant statement. Obviously, they are mixed with
the both heritages.

Tecumseh Sherman says:

+hazel estrella so…because of the mixture…they are not….who they say
they are….they are….half.

hazel estrella says:

Most First Nations of the U.S. are mixed with the other major groups and
yet, it’s all right for them to identify with their tribe or tribes of
origin. Also, what someone identifies themselves as has little to do with
how they look. All of the people in these families had some Carib features.
Some may have even had Arawak.

chyna moon says:

I enjoyed this

marvin fernandez says:

Proud to be Garifuna and learn more about kalipuna and the black Caribs of
Dominica which are part of the same lineage.

Lies . I’m 1492 Columbus Ask The Native Who Were Those Darker People On The
Island Of Espaniola.

HigherLiving MG says:

That’s Why Haitians Speak French, Cuz It’s On The Same Island That Columbus
Seen Them On. The Black Caribs Are Of The Tribe Of Benjamin And The Native
Indians Are From Gad. We’re All Hebrews Stop Letting These People Lie To
Us. But Even So The Liars Will Suffer When The Messiah Returns.
