Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The charikawi is a traditional mimed dance of the Garifuna, in which a hunter encounters a cave man and a cow. The word may also refer to the music for such a dance.Today the Garifuna live primarily in Central America. They live along the Caribbean Coast in Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras including the mainland, and on the island of Roat n. There are also diaspora communities of Garifuna in the United States, particularly in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and other major cities.The French missionary Raymond Breton, who arrived in the Lesser Antilles in 1635, and lived on Guadeloupe and Dominica until 1653, took ethnographic and linguistic notes of the native peoples of these islands, including St Vincent which he visited only briefly.show more
