Overview

This coloring book was designed to help children to start learning the Garifuna language and have fun at the same time. The Garifuna language originated in the Island of St. Vincent prior to the Garifuna people's exile to Central America in 1797. The language is currently spoken by more than 300,000 Garifunas, mainly, in Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and United States. On May 21st 2001, the UNESCO declared the Garifuna Culture a "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity".
