Introduction by Joseph O. Palacio

The following is a quotation from the Foreword:
“This collection of essays by Garifuna and non-Garifuna scholars is divided into historical and contemporary sections, but the content of many of the essays demonstrates the continuities that exist between the Garifuna’s past and present, in their culture, identity and social organization, and their relations with wider societies in the different physical and social environments in which they live.”
