Excerpt: Garifuna, Spanish, Belizean Kriol, English The Garinagu (singular Garifuna) are an ethnic group of mixed ancestry who live primarily in Central America. They live along the Caribbean Coast in Belize, Guatemala, St. Vincent, Nicaragua and Honduras including the mainland, and on the island of Roatn. There are also diaspora communities of Garinagu in the United States, particularly in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and other major cities.

There is also small a community living in Barbados. The Garinagu (singular Garifuna) are a mix of African, Arawak, and Carib ancestry. More precisely, the average Garifuna is 76% Sub Saharan African, 20% Arawak/Carib and 4% European. The British colonial administration used the terms Black Carib and Garinagu to distinguish them from Yellow and Red Carib, the Amerindian population that did not intermarry with Africans.

The Amerindians who had not intermarried with Africans are still living in the Lesser Antilles- Dominica, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, etc. In recent history, Garinagu have thrown off their British appellation and encourage others to refer to them as Garifuna. The Garifuna population is estimated to be around 600,000 both in Central America, Yurumein (St. Vincent and The Grenadines) and the United States of America. The latter, due to heavy migration from Central America, has become the second largest hub of Garifuna people outside Central America. New York has the largest population, heavily dominated by Hondurans, Guatemalans and Belizeans.

Los Angeles ranks second with Belizean Garinagu being the most populous, followed by Hondurans and Guatemalans.... More: http://booksllc.net/?id=359978
