Garifunas

El 12 de abril de 1797 llegaron a Roatan

los Garinagu o mejor conocidos como los Garifunas, que también son conocidas como los caribes negros. Son descendientes de los indios caribe y de los esclavos africanos que naufragaron en la isla de san Vicente. Estas dos culturas se entrelazaron y dieron nacimiento a un pueblo que pudo preservar su cultura a pesar de la discriminación, migración interacción y reasentamiento. Los pueblos garifunas mas conocidos en honduras son: Tela, San Juan, Triunfo de la Cruz, Corozal, Trujillo, Santa Fe, Santa Rosa de Aguan y Punta Gorda (Roatan) y otros pequeños pueblos que están ubicados en la costa norte de Honduras. Estos pueblos permanecen casi intactos de la influencia externa, de la tecnología y el progreso. Sus casas anteriormente estaban construidas de caña y hojas de palmera, actualmente las han renovado hasta concluir en casas de concreto. Los Garifunas dependen de la pesca que realizan usando sedales manuales, redes y canoas ahuecadas. Muchos de los pueblos son autosuficientes y nunca desperdician lo que la naturaleza les ofrece. En la isla de Roatan tenemos una comunidad Garifuna que con el paso del tiempo ha evolucionado mucho sin olvidar sus raíces y sus costumbres. Ellos se encuentran localizados en el municipio de José Santos Guardiola en la comunidad de Punta Gorda. Algunos de ellos se mantienen igual que sus ancestros viviendo en casas de barro con techos de palmeras de coco. Otros en cambio se han desplazado hacia otras comunidades buscando una mejor forma de vida. Actualmente se estima que más de 60,000 garifunas viven en América central y por lo menos 50,000 han emigrado a otros países..

Las playas les han servido como un gran soporte para su cultura durante generaciones. Su música con tambores y caracoles; su comida confeccionada con coco, pescado plátano y yuca; sus danzas y su destacada participación en otros campos como la medicina, deporte y biología hacen de los garifunas una armonía cultural y social que pesa entre los hondureños.

ITALIANO Il 12 di aprile del 1797 ci fu l’arrivo in Honduras dei Garinagu o meglio conosciuti come i Garifuna; conosciuti anche come negri caraibici, dicendenti degli indios caraibici e schiavi africani che naufragarono nell’isola di San Vicente. Queste due culture si intrecciarono e diedero vita ad un popolo che e’ riuscito a preservare la sua cultura pur passando per discriminazione, migrazione, integrazione e adattamento. I Garifuna piu’ conosciui in Honduras sono a: Tela, San Juan, Triunfo de la Cruz, Corozal, Trujillo, Santa Fe, Santa Rosa de Aguan e Punta Gorda (Roatan). Altri piccoli popoli sono situati nella costa nel Nord dell’Honduras. Questo popolo non si lascia influenzare dal mondo esterno, della tecnologia e dal progresso. Anteriormente le loro case erano costruite di canne e foglie di palma, attualmente le hanno rinnovate e costruite in cemento. I garifuna vivono di pesca usando lenze manuali, reti e canoe. Molti popoli sono autosufficienti e non dissipano i prodotti che gli offre la terra.


Nell’isola di Roatan abbiamo una comunita’ di Garifuna che con il tempo si e’ evoluta molto senza pero’ dimenticare le sue radici e abitudini. I Garifuna si trovano nel municipio di José Santos Guardiola in Punta Gorda. Alcuni di loro vivono come i loro antenati, in case di fango con tetti fatti di palme di cocco, altri sono andati a cercare uno stile di vita migliore. Attualmente gli esperti stimano che piu’ di 60.000 Garifuna vivono in Centro America e per lo meno 50.000 sono emigrati in altri paesi. Le spiagge sono state di grande aiuto per generazioni. La loro musica con tamburi e conchiglie, il cibo fatto a base di cocco, pesce fresco, platano e yuca; la loro danza e la loro eccezionale partecipazione in altri settori quali: medicina, sport e biologia fa dei Garifuna una comunita’ con una armonia culturale e sociale di grande valore in Honduras. ENG On April 12, 1797 the Garinagu or “Black Caribes” but best known as Garifunas, arrived in Roatán. The Garifunas are descendents of Indians from the Caribbean and the African slaves that wrecked near the island of San Vicente in 1665. The ships were carrying slaved that were to be used in the British Colonies in the area of Martinica, Santa Lucia, Granada, Dominica and Barbados. Finally leaving the island, in part by need but also forcibly moved by the British, the Garifunas arrived to the island of Roatan and to the coast of Trujillo. These two cultures despising discrimination, migration, interaction and resettlement, stood together to preserve their cultural life style giving birth to a new people, culture and history and dialect still widely spoken today.

Their huts were initially made of sugar cane sticks and palm leaves and through little progress, and lack of external influence have almost remained the same until recently that they have also begun building with concrete. The Garifuna’s main source of income is fishing making hand made paddles, fishing nets and canoes. The most know Garifuna towns in Honduras are: Tela, San Juán, Triunfo de la Cruz, Corozal, Trujillo, Santa Fe, Santa Rosa de Aguan and Punta Gorda. Many of these towns are independent and won’t waste anything that nature gives to them. In Roatán, the Garifuna’s way of life has evolved without leaving behind their culture, live style or habits. They mostly live in the Jose Santos Guardiola area in the community of Punta Gorda, keeping their ancestors way of life, living off the land and the sea, others have moved to larger more advanced communities. Today it is estimated that 60,000 Garifunas live in the area of Central America, and at least 50,000 have immigrated to other countries. Beaches have served as great support to their culture throughout the generations. Their music, based on drums and conch shells; their food mainly fish, bananas, plantains and yucca; their dances and distinguished participation in others fields such as medicine, sports and biology, have made the Garifuna’s a social and cultural harmony which stands out forming an important part of the Honduran people.
