The National Garifuna Council, which is the voice of the Garifuna People in Belize, is exceedingly bothered by the recent allegation of not permitting the speaking of the Garifuna Language in one of the financial institutions in Dangriga Town. This allegation is being taken seriously and the council is investigating the matter. The nation will be informed of the findings and further actions will be taken based on the results. We will not stand aside and allow our rich cultural heritage to be disrespected by any entity, individual, or organization. We hope there is no truth to the allegation and if there is, we will ensure that all resources are utilized to get an apology. We are builders of this nation and embrace the diversity in Belize.
We remain the humble gate keepers of God’s gift to us as proud Garinagu.
Garinagu wagia mamanichubadiwa- We are Garinagu and will not be quiet.
