By BBN Staff: The National Garifuna Council (NGC) issued a statement informing the nation of the 2020 celebrations for Garifuna settlement day.
The theme for this year is “Garinagu: úara, here; awansera asta lidan liderenouga. Garinagu: United and Strong, moving forward despite challenges.”
“COVID-19 has brought about unprecedented changes to the way we live, work and interact with each other. As we are quickly approaching the month of November and the anticipation of the cultural extravaganza leading up to the re-enactment of the arrival of the Garinagu to the shores of Belize, National Garifuna Council has made the decision to host virtual activities,” the council said.
The focus of this year’s events will be Garifuna identity, spirituality and perseverance.
NGC branches countrywide will be hosting various virtual activities to honor the contributions of past and present Garinagu and to showcase the vibrant Garifuna culture, language, music and dance.
NGC encourages everyone to wear their masks properly, practice social distancing protocols and other preventative measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our beautiful Belize.
