HÉRITAGES magazine

The Magazine of your Heritage

From the Editor’s Desk I am of Martiniquais and Cameroonian decent. My parents have settled and lived in France for the past fifty-five years plus. I was brought up in the suburbs of Paris, until the age of twenty-two, when I decided to venture out of Paris. I had visited Martinique during the school holidays, but didn’t have much childhood memories of my visit. I re-visited once again at the age of twenty-two and fell, head over hills with Martinique. It was love at first sight. I loved the country, its people, the smells wafting through the air, the flavours of the foods. I was fascinated by life in the Caribbean. I decided there and then to live in Martinique. Creation of Heritage Magazine is as a result of years of admiration of the Caribbean customs, their culture and examine the history bequeathed to the Caribbean Pond from the African Continent. Nathalie Mogade
