            Belize Religion Belize is located in Central America and is bordered by Mexico and Guatemala. The entire east coast is along the Caribbean Sea. Belize is a country rich in culture, and diverse in religion. The main religions are Roman Catholic, and Protestant. The Roman Catholic Church was established in Belize in 1851 and now accounts for 49.6% of the population. Among the followers are the Mestizos, Garifunas, and the Mayans. At the head of the church is the Pope who is the spiritual leader. Followers of the Catholic Church are expected to attend mass every Sunday and on holidays such as Easter and Christmas. The Roman Catholic Church has many traditions and rituals that vary depending on the time of year. There are seven sacraments or ceremonies that are important in the Catholic Church, and they are the Eucharist, baptism, confirmation, penance, holy orders, matrimony, and the anointing of the sick. To be initiated into the faith, one must first be baptized, which is the cleansing of the soul usually by being immersed or sprinkled with water which is seen as symbol of purity. One must confess their sins, which is known as penance before they may be confirmed and a full member of the church. After one is free of sin they are confirmed by a bishop or priest and anointed with consecrated oil. Catholicism is just one of the many faiths in Belize.

    Culture of Belize
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Altun Ha archaeological site in Belize, a remnant of Mayan culture The Belizean culture is made up of influences and people from Kriol Maya Garinagu (also known as Garifuna), Mestizo (a mixture of Spanish and Native Americans Mennonites who are of German descent, with a blend of many other cultures from Chinese to Lebanese . It is a unique blend that emerged through the country's long and occasionally violent history. Courtesy is important to most Belizeans. It is not uncommon for Belizeans to greet each other on the street even if they have never seen each other before, or for acquaintances to spend minutes at a time chatting, oblivious to what is happening around them. Another aspect of the culture is the idea of the mystical healing and Obeah . However, there is still talk of evil shaman practices like putting "Obeah" on certain houses.

    Belize – San Ignacio’s Cayo Farmers’ Market
    22 June 2010 One Comment By Lorenzo Gonzales All and every Saturdays, in western Belize, residents of the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town and villagers from all over the Cayo District come to San Ignacio Town to sell their local produce. There you can witness a wide array of different foods, fruits and vegetables and many miscellaneous items. Villagers start setting up their stalls from early morning and at the crack of dawn the market place comes alive with many people buying, trading and conversing amongst each other. The cultural dynamic at the Market place is really extraordinary; all the diverse cultures of Belize can be witnessed present emphasizing the melting pot which Belize represents. Mennonites, Garifuna, Creoles, Mestizos, Mayas, Asians, East Indians and even American Expats are all interacting and making the best out of the spectacular day. Whenever someone would be walking down the aisles it wouldn’t be surprising to hear various languages being spoken, see different cultural attires and sample a wide variety of different ethnic foods. Going to the Market place is the ultimate luxury for many Belizeans, enjoying the environment, socializing with friends and family, and having a wide variety of fresh produce stacked up neatly for your choice is unparallel to none. One may ask how Belize ended up being such a melting pot of cultures and have English as their main language? After all, Belize is located in Central America amongst surrounding Latin American countries. To make things short, everyone who is up to date with World Geography knows Belize was once a colony of Britain and it can be proudly viewed on our colourful money(Queen Elizabeth is on all our bills). And even though

    The Maya were the first to inhabit the land referred to as La Ruta Maya, whose territory also included Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. From as early as 9000 B.C.E. they flourished as a master civilization, constructing impressive ceremonial centers and villages, until their mysterious disappearance in 1000 C.E.
    Today, about 12% of the population of Belize are Maya. At the peak of the vast Mayan empire, archeologists estimate that 1 to 2 million Mayans lived within the borders of Belize.
    Colonial history
    Ethnically diverse culture
    During most of this century Creoles were the largest ethnic group, followed by mestizos, Garifunas, and Mayas. As of the 1991 census mestizos outnumbered the Creoles. This multi ethnic country is also home to communities of German Mennonites, Chinese, East Indians, and immigrants from the Middle East.
    Creoles Belizean Creoles are the descendants of slaves brought from Africa and the West Indies. Generally to be Creole means to have some African ancestry, but is now used primarily to identify non-Indian, non-mestizo ways of life, with a set of social values derived from the Anglo-Saxon countries.

    The settlers who came from Mexico brought with them their Spanish Language, Catholic and Mexican traditions and a rich culture. The official language of Belize is English and most islanders speak and understand English but the main language is still Spanish. The Maya that some of the present settlers' ancestors once spoke is no longer spoken. Islanders also speak Creole, a language or dialect derived from the English language. Due to the influence of Maya, Creole and English languages, most of the islanders speak today what is known as "kitchen Spanish" - informal Spanish that incorporates English, Maya and Creole words. An example is "pullar". The word comes from the English root "pull" and adds a Spanish suffix "ar". The English definition is "pull". The Mexican settlers also brought with them a distinctly rich culture with traditions comprised of Spanish, Mayan and Catholic elements. Many of these traditions are still followed today. Some such of these is the observance of religious feast days and celebrations such as the Lenten Season, an important aspect of Catholicism; regular attendance at Church especially at Easter and Christmas and the celebration of Sacraments. Easter Procession and Novenas (prayers) are spectacular annual events and have the participation of almost the entire local population of San Pedro Town.

    Belize's culture integrates an array of ethnicities into its society
    Coming Together The history of Belize includes territorial wars and the inhumane enslavement of people of various ethnicities. But the outcome of this marred past is a country brimming with diversity and a population with roots from all over the world. Today, the little Central American country of Belize is a melting pot of cultures that have combined to make this beautiful nation a unique and fascinating place.
    Influence of the Mayans
    The Mayans were the first known people to inhabit the territories known today as Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Archaeologists estimate that during the peak of the Mayan empire, about 1 million to 2 million Mayans lived in the Belize region. Ancient Mayans and many of the Mayan people who live in the country today consider themselves to be fruit of the ceiba tree. In Mayan culture, the ceiba tree is symbolic of life and is said to be the center of the universe that holds up the heavens.
    The Mestizos
    Mestizos, people with a mixture of Mayan and Spanish heritages, comprise 48 percent of the Belizean population. The Mestizos arrived in Belize in 1840, trying to escape the Caste War; they now live all over Belize, but predominately in the northern regions of Orange Walk and Corozal. The Mestizos have played a very important part in the growth and progression of Belize, and are vital to the Belize community.

    History The first inhabitants of Belize were the Maya and Caribe Indians. Belize was a part of the great Mayan empire which stretched through Guatemala, southern Mexico and parts of Honduras and El Salvador. Though the history of the Maya can be traced back for over 4000 years, the Classic period of more advanced Mayan civilization began around the 3 rd century AD and reached its height between the 6 th and 8 th centuries. By the 14 th century it was in serious decline. When the Spanish arrived in the 16 th century, many of the Mayan cities were deserted. The Spanish th century. When piracy became passé, many of the pirates began working in the logging trade. Belize was British by tradition and sympathy by the time that a British force routed the Spanish armada off St George's Caye in 1798, delivering Belize from Spanish rule. In 1862, Great Britain declared Belize to be the colony of

    Identification. The formation of a consciousness of a national culture coincided with the growth of the nationalist movement in the 1950s toward independence. It was a phenomenon that occurred simultaneously among neighboring British West Indian colonies. Ethnic and geographic identification coincides with the areas where ethnic groups settled. In the north and west there are the mestizos, people formed by the union of Spaniards and Maya. In the central part, there are the Creoles, formed by the intermarriage of the British and their African slaves. In the south, there are the Garifuna, also called Black Caribs, along the coast and the Maya farther inland. The building of the capital city, Belmopan, in the late 1960s was a crowning achievement of the nationalist movement, radically transforming the settlement pattern. The immediate reason was to rebuild after the massive destruction of the old capital, Belize City, by a hurricane in 1961; another reason was to attract the population into the hinterland to engage in agriculture, which the government was promoting to replace timber, the hallmark of the colonial economy. The government was attempting to build a national culture emerging from colonialism with a new settlement pattern and a new economy.

    CULTURE The small population of Belize is culturally diverse. This multiplicity of ethnicities, languages, religions, modes of dress, cuisines, styles of music, and folklore reflects the cultural mix. There are many ethnically distinct communities, but people of different groups also mix in many social contexts: at work, in schools, and in the political parties that are not ethnically based. Though prejudices exist, there is no history of interethnic violence in Belize.
