Greg Palacio

The Garifuna 2006 History and Heritage Calendar



This Garifuna calendar features thirteen of the most beautiful paintings of the Internationally known Garifuna painter, Greg Palacio. Every month of the year is carefully crafted with a large painting that covers the entire top page and calendar view at the bottom page.

Each calendar month contains the day of the weeks and name of the months in English, Spanish and Garifuna for your educational purposes. At the bottom right or upper left, the calendar page shows the previous and next month for quick reference.

A key feature that makes this Garifuna calendar unique is the historical printing of major events dates, celebrations within the Garifuna community as well as birthdays of important Garifuna people that have made major contributions, such as Dr. Alfonso Sanchez Lacayo, T.V. Ramos and many more.

In addition to Garifuna specific events, the calendar also includes well known dates such as Mother’s Day, the birthdays of Malcom X, Martin Luther King Jr and Bob Marley among many.

Most calendars are made to be used for one year only. With the premium high quality color glossy paintings and the special addition of the year 2006 and 2007, this calendar has been made to last you a life time and be completely usable for the years 2006 and 2007.

Start the year 2006 with this unique and priceless Garifuna calendar or offer it as a precious gift to your friends or family members.

The Garifuna also known as Garinagu or Black Carib, are descendants of Arawaks of South America, the Caribs of the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean, and peoples from the coast of Africa.

Garifuna are one of the few blacks in the New World who have kept their language and culture.

About Greg Palacio
Belizean, Garifuna Natural Life Artist


Ulmar "GREG" Palacio has a brush with purpose. Born in Belize, Central America, on November 17, 1962, and raised in Dangriga, Bze., he is the fourth of nine children to Rita and Clifford Palacio. "Greg P," as he was referred to from youth, always showed interest in art. At an early age, while attending Sacred Heart School, he was chosen to go from classroom to classroom to draw colorful Christmas themes on blackboards.

When Ulmar migrated to the United States and attended Loren Miller Elementary School in Los Angeles, California, his artistic ability was recognized by his 6th grade teacher and was nutured ever since.


Greg's paintings are visually vibrant. Working in various mediums, he incorporates the spirituality and rhythms of his indigenous Garifuna heritage, which is truly sensational.

In 1990, Palacio entered a North, Central, and South American art contest held in Hollywood, California. His painting depicting a ceremonial dance from his culture called "DÜGÜ" took first place. That tremendous acknowledgement ignited his career. Although this early success didn't have major curators or art collectors knocking at his door, the little money Greg received has been well invested. Presently, Ulmar does commission work when time permits. Since 1992, he has done several art shows throughout the U.S. and in Belize.

In addition, G.P. is a member of a local culture band, named "Libaya Baba." He is also active in the production of Belizean music. Greg has designed and painted album covers for musicians such as: Ugrou's "Wagiya Ya," Cross Culture's "Wata Hole," Pupa Curly's "Sweet Belizean Girl," legendary Mohobub Flores' "Roots & Culture," the remake by pioneer Bill Cayetano's "Reggae Nuwani," and a new Paranda album by newcomer Len Cayetano, just to mention a few.
