Travel writer for telegraph.co.uk, Gavin Bell gets right back to nature – back to Dominica: the Caribbean’s lost world. A world all about Dominica’s original settlers – the Kalinago People, and how they are thriving amid rainforest, waterfalls and volcanoes.
Not what you would expect from people where the tidy of history has been against them every since, and who where forced deeper into Dominica’s mountainous rainforests until barely 500 remained.
Bell captures the true essence of the nature island – which is far from the Caribbean stereotype of glitzy hotels on palm-fringed beaches. Its no wonder Dominica is referred to as “the Caribbean’s lost World”, but I don’t think many of the kalinago people would hold offense too, because they love Dominica just the way it is…don’t you?
Watch and learn how the Kalinago people are preserving their culture and traditions.
