The Karina Cultural Group from the Kalinago Territory will perform at a CARICOM Reparations Commission Symposium which is being held in Antigua and Barbuda today, Thursday, October 10, 2019.

The group is scheduled to take part in a cultural event that will form part of the one-day symposium being held at the Starfish Jolly Beach Hotel.

The cultural event will showcase the talents of the indigenous people in Dominica, as the CARICOM Reparations Commission will use this symposium as an opportunity to recognize and promote the reparatory justice concerns of indigenous people in the region.

Discover Dominica Authority (DDA), through the Dominica Reparations Committee, has provided sponsorship for the participation of the Karina Cultural Group at this event. DDA’s support will also act as a means of being aligned to this year’s theme, “Aspiring towards a culture of great governance”.

The CARICOM Reparations Commission (CRC) in collaboration with the Center for Reparation Research (CRR) and the Antigua and Barbuda Reparations Support Commission, is convening at this one-day symposium on the topic “Western Banking, Colonialism & Reparations”.

    Admin, is it Karina or Karifuna? I have always heard of Karifuna, but I don’t live on island so there could be another group.

    An admirable idea to bring attention and focus on the indigenous people of the region.. CARICOM is to be congratulated on this effort.

    I’m excited for the Kalingo people for every positive exposure and recognition that they get. They should be policies put in place to help them to empower themselves. They have a lot to offer culturally and otherwise.

    I stand firmly with the Kalinago people when it comes to preserving their skills, customs, lifestyle and authentic identity.

    But having said that, I question whether staged cultural performances are the best way of going about it.
