Garifuna Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Garifuna language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Garifuna tribe and their society. Please note that Garifunas and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Garifuna history is interesting and important, but the Garifuna Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Garifuna link to add.
