Famed Carib Canoe Sails Again

The Gli-Gli Carib Canoe Project is about to embark on another expedition in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their first voyage to relink the Carib communities of the region. According to the official website the current objective is to sail the Carib Canoe, “Gli Gli,” with a crew of 12 Dominican Caribs from Antigua to the Virgin Islands, via Nevis and St Kitts, St Eustatia, St Barths, St Martin and Anguilla then across the Anegada passage to Tortola. The expedition intends to draw attention to the role the Caribs have played in the region's history and culture. Throughout the expedition the crew will be presenting slide and video shows about the Gli Gli Carib canoe project and presenting traditional musical performances for schools and heritage groups.
