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.
