Let us go ahead and capture as much as possible as soon as possible even before a plan is drafted to coordinate. I missed the opportunity to tape my grandfather when he would tell me what he knew or remembered. I have seen some of the art in the caves and on rocks. Things are been destroyed intentionally and unintentionally, so it is best to use digital cameras, Phones Ipads etc to capture as much as possible and then we can begin the process of coordinating or creating the archives.
There are lots of us out there, some of us are mixed with other nationalities, but our heart keeps us wanting to know more about our forefathers.
I have ties to the so called Caribs of Dominica and Arawaks in Anguilla. Grand mother on Dad's side was Dominican (Mixed), and Grandfather on mother's side was Anguillian (mixed). I regret not learning more about my ancestors before they passed on, but I intend learning as much as I can from others. My grandfather did tell me a few things as he recalled.
The indigenous people of the Caribbean have a rich history which is so different from what we read in most of the history books.
I was born in St.Kitts, lived in Trinidad in my early years, Dominica for high school Anguilla in my twenties and throughout the Caribbean and presently live in Orlando, Florida, I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wow, it has been a while since I have checked this network. Yes there are many of us out here, as Mentioned on earlier blogs, many of us are not full blooded but we are just as eager to share and learn more about our heratige.
