My Garifuna -> Garifuna 101

GARIFUNA WAGIA!

11/02/04
By: Cheryl Noralez
We were exiled from our Homeland Yurumein and scattered around the Caribbean Sea,
No matter where you come from: Indurana, Wadimaluna, Balisina, Nigarawana, Merigana
Garifuna Wagia!
African descendants that were never enslaved,
A celebration of our freedom!
Recognize our diversity and our uniqueness,
Knowing who we are and never forgetting our ancestors.
Garifuna Wagia!
The combination of peace makers and warriors,
Is the ingredient of our Being.
Garifuna people have the heart and the peaceful soul of our Arawak ancestors,
We also possess the strength and courage of our Carib and African ancestors,
Garifuna Wagia!
We are people, who never lost our heritage,
We never lost our Motherís tongue.
We never lost our Forefatherís traditions and beliefs.
We keep our Ancestorsí Spirits alive within us.
We are peaceful by nature,
But we will always remain warriors in defending who we are.
Garifuna Wagia!


A poem by Cheryl L. Noralez
