4. Kalinago Dance
The Kalinago are the indigenous people of Dominica, formerly known as the Caribs. About 3,000 Kalinagos in the north-eastern coast of Dominica. The Kalinago live a simple communal life, carrying on the many traditions of their ancestors.
What fascinated me about visiting the Kalinago territory is how different the Kalinago people have a very south pacific island look and the the rest of the Dominicans look very Caribbean or as I say “Bob Marley-an.”
Since I love connecting with and sharing ancient cultures, it was exciting to meeting the Kalinago people, and learn about their traditions, legends, and beliefs that have been kept alive for thousands of years – and DANCE!
