Grenada - Culture G renada is a rolling, mountainous island, covered with fragrant spice trees and rare tropical flowers. Bordered by stunning beaches, and dotted with picturesque towns, this verdant island has long been a major source of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and cocoa. The seductive drifts through the colourful Saturday markets and Grenada's dense forests. In the interior of this volcanic island are cascading rivers and waterfalls, lush rainforests, and one of the most breathtakingly beautiful mountain lakes imaginable. The capital, St. George's, is widely held to be the loveliest city in the Caribbean. Its horseshoe-shaped harbour is surrounded by a pastel rainbow of dockside warehouses and the red-tiled roofs of traditional shops and homes. Grenada's physical beauty is complemented by its rich history and vibrant, living cultural heritage. Local festivals, fairs, and markets remain an integral part of life on Grenada. Its centuries-old spice plantations and rum distilleries still use traditional methods, emphasizing quality rather than quantity. Although the tourist industry has become more substantial in recent years, the island's easy rhythms and the friendly openness of its residents evoke an atmosphere that has long since vanished elsewhere. For many visitors, of course, the measure of any island is taken by its beaches and coral reefs, and Grenada offers plenty of both. The island is ringed with miles of picture-perfect strands, including both entrancing black and sugar-fine white sand beaches. Grand Anse Beach, a smooth expanse stretching for two miles around the curve of a gentle bay, is world famous. Grenada has plenty to offer those interested in offshore pleasure as well, with easily accessible and pristine reefs off the coast of both Grenada and its sister island, Carriacou.

Culture of Grenada
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Grenada 's French colonists brought along their culture, as did the African slaves they brought across the Atlantic for agricultural work. The combination of these cultures is what you will find on this island. Indians have also influenced the island culture in more recent years. Importantly, many descendants of the first African Grenadians have maintained their own tribal knowledge. Many Grenadians are aware of the tribe from which their ancestors came, and their dance styles have been maintained throughout the island. With the passing of the Slave Trade Act 1807 by the British Parliament and the subsequent Abolishing of Slavery, indentured labor from India was procured at a very large scale. The first ship, named the Maidstone, departed from Calcutta , India on January 27, 1857 and arrived a few months later on May 1. In all; 3,206 East Indians arrived to Grenada by 1885. Only 380 of them returned to India. The Indians made many contributions to Grenada. Indian Arrival Day was celebrated last year for the first time since the centenary celebration in 1957.
The Indians later on assimilated with the existing Africans, Europeans and other ethnicities intermarrying with each other. This very much influenced the culture and cuisine of Grenada.

Caribbean Religion
The Caribbean is home to many religious practices, thanks in large part to its multi-ethnic history
Relating to Religions When it comes to religion, the Caribbean is dominated by Christianity. However, many different sects and cultural adaptations of Christianity can be found throughout the islands. From the religions of slaves and indentured servants to styles developed on the islands themselves, the Caribbean is full of a vibrant variety of faiths. This overview of the region's religious beliefs is supplemented by more detailed articles about specific religious practices. The links to these articles can be found at the bottom of this page. Christianity is the dominant religious style in the region, but local religions also play an important role in the Caribbean. When Europeans came to the Caribbean, they brought their own religions: The Spanish and French were devout Roman Catholics, while the British were Protestants. Irish migrants from Britain brought Catholicism with them as well, and the Dutch brought both Catholicism and Dutch Reform beliefs. The region's religions became even more mixed when the islands were claimed by different nations, as they often were throughout the Caribbean's early history. But religious diversity exists even on the islands that rarely or never changed hands. Slavery and indentured servitude brought many people with many different faiths to the islands.

6. Grenada - History And Culture
History Culture. When Christopher Columbus sailed by Grenada in 1498, the island was already inhabited by the Carib Indians.
For the next ninety years, the French struggled unsuccessfully to keep the island from falling into the hands of the British. Fort George and Fort Frederick , which still command the heights overlooking St. George's harbour, are relics of that fight. Finally, under the Treaty of Versailles in 1783, the island was permanently ceded to the British. Having gained stable possession of Grenada, the British immediately imported large numbers of slaves from Africa and established sugar plantations. In 1795, however, British control was seriously challenged once again, this time by Julian Fedon, a black planter inspired by the French Revolution. Under Fedon's leadership, the island's slaves rose up in a violent rebellion, effectively taking control of Grenada. Although the rebellion was crushed by the British, tensions remained high until slavery was abolished in 1834. The site of Fedon's Camp , high up in Grenada's beautiful central mountains, is today a popular destination for hikers and trekkers.

The Garifuna History, Language and Culture
Historical accounts prove that long ago, around 200 BC, native Amerindians had inhabited the Greater Antilles as well as parts of the South American mainland. The native Caribs led by Joseph Chatoyer fought fiercely against the European influence in defense of their territories. Chatoyer was subdued in 1795. This followed a deportation of the Caribs off their stronghold occupation of St. Vincent. They were driven off to nearby Becquia and soon set sail en route to Roatan on March 11, 1797. Both Black and Red Caribs occupied Roatan. They came from the Lesser Antilles by the thousands and before long they had occupied other coastal territories off the coast of Honduras. Carib intermarriage with subdued enemies gave rise to an exchange of cultures. Hence today we have the Garifuna - a fusion of the native Amerindians and early European influence. The first recorded arrival of the Garifuna to Belize was in 1802. From that time onwards they had become recognized in the coastal township of Dangriga and soon spread to other nearby shores. Thomas Vincent Ramos led the Garinagu into the occupation of several coastal communities. Today we have come to know the Garinagu as a distinct culture having their own language, food, music, and even a very intricately weaved religion.

Tips of the Earthbergs
By Jheri St. James Hymn to the Sea : Like all who live on small islands, I must always be remembering the sea. Indians were the first inhabitants here and then in 1492 Christopher Columbus became the first European to explore these islands. After reportedly landing in the Bahamas, Columbus named them the Indies because he thought he had finally reached Asia and the East Indies. Numerous explorers followed in his path, then settlers arrived from the Americas and Europereligious outcasts, slaves from Africa, and a small army of pirates. Great military powers fought for control of the islands, long called the West Indies, now named the Caribbean islands. This is a large group of islands that separate the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean, and are broken into three island groups:
  • Bahamas (north)3,000 individual islands and reefs; Greater Antilles (central)Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico Lesser Antilles (southeast)
Predicted Topography Gravity Map The king and the people of Silene converted to Christianity, George slew the dragon, and the body was carted out of the city on four ox-carts. Fifteen thousand men were baptized, without women and children. On the site where the dragon died, the king built a church to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint George, and from its altar a spring arose whose waters cured all disease.Traditionally, the lance with which St. George slew the dragon was called Ascalon, a name recalling the city of Ashkelon, Israel. From this tradition, the name Ascalon was used by Winston Churchill for his personal aircraft during World War II.
