DANGRIGA TOWN GARIFUNA CULTURAL TOURS: Dangriga, formerly known as Stann Creek, is the main Garifuna cultural center of Belize. The Garifuna people have a rich and interesting history in Belize. The first Garifuna were survivors of a shipwrecked slave ship bringing African prisoners to the New World to be sold as slaves. The survivors swam ashore on St. Vincent Island and from there came to Honduras and Belize where they mixed with the native Carib Indians. The Garifuna adopted the Carib language, but maintained most of their African musical and religious traditions.
