The Original Official Site of the St. Lucia Tourist Board S t. Lucia's culture has evolved from the intermingling of the many different groups of people who have participated in its history. Each has brought different beliefs and traditions, all of which are reflected in the life of the island today. A visitor is likely to drive on the British side of the road to an Indian restaurant in a French town, greeted all along the way in Creole patois. One of the most accessible expressions of St. Lucia's rich cultural heritage is its cuisine. The fertile, volcanic soil of the island yields an enormous supply of produce, and the island is one of the leading banana exporters in the Caribbean, with six different varieties available. In addition to bananas, St. Lucia's abundant tropical fruits include mangoes, papayas, pineapples, soursops, passionfruit, guavas, and coconuts. Local chefs combine the island's fresh produce with a wide variety of equally fresh seafood to create tantalizing curries, Creole-style entrees, and pepperpot stews. Callaloo soup, made from a leafy green similar to spinach, is the national dish. The island's outstanding cuisine has recently gained international recognition by garnering several gold medals in the regions most prestigious culinary competitions.

    St. Lucia's Creole core: language and culture play a key role in this Caribbean nation's struggle for a new path to economic development
    Americas (English Edition) July-August, 2006 by Suzanne Murphy-Larronde
    Many a memorable introduction to another culture comes by way of its favorite foods, and on the Windward Caribbean island of St. Lucia, there's no better time to become culinarily acquainted than at a festival known as Jounen Kweyol, or Creole Day. Held on the last Sunday of October, this annual party signals the end of Creole Heritage Month, a salute to the country's cultural identity, and indulging in traditional homemade delicacies is just one of its pleasures. Every year, Heritage Month's Creole-inspired entertainment, educational fundraising activities, food fairs, athletic events, and popular culture queen competition are hosted by four villages (last year's venues included Arise La Raye and Laborie on the island's west coast), where by noon on Jounen Kweyol, dozens of canopied kiosks have geared up for the arrival of hungry tourists and island families, many fresh from special Creole-language Catholic masses. These itinerant kitchens are presided over by imposing female chefs dressed in traditional white blouses with crisp headdresses and flounced skirts of orange, yellow, and green madras fabric. Among the array of esteemed local favorites are stewed shrimp in coconut milk, smoked herring with roasted breadfruit and avocado, callaloo soup with crabmeat and dasheen greens, and the national dishboiled unripened bananas and fish fritters, served with cucumberscommonly known as green fig and saltfish.

St. Lucia Culture
St. Lucia's culture combines French, British, Native, and African roots
Cultural Concoction Since the first European discovery of St. Lucia, power over the island has passed between many hands, and each of the island's inhabitants has helped to create a unique culture. Amerindian culinary styles are just the beginning of the cultural diversity you'll find here. Though the British hold political control of the island, there are many other cultural influences in St. Lucia. Remnants of the French influence are found throughout the island in everything from names to the language.
Cultural Roots
The Indians that inhabited the island of St. Lucia farmed cassava, yams, and sweet potatoes. These crops and local fish comprise much of the local food, and local fruits and vegetables make them strongly West Indian. Still, East Indian cuisine has also left its mark on the island's local dishes. The British brought language, education, and judicial structure to the island. However, these elements have been strongly influenced by the cultures of the African slaves and the French, who fought with the British for control of the island for 150 years. French arts, music, and dance have had a strong influence on the culture as well, but their most marked contribution is in the island's language. The French patois stands alongside English, which is the island's official language.

June 19, 2009 by flightstostlucia
Filed under History and Culture 5 Comments St Lucia Culture The architecture features a French provincial style, many of the place names are French and around 70% of the population are Roman Catholic. The Catholic cathedral in Castries is of French design with an African inspired interior. The African heritage of St Lucia can be seen in the many traditional customs and superstitions that still survive, such as Obeah (voodoo) and the local Snakeman who is visited by locals seeking his medicinal powers. Music has a French influence on the St Lucia Culture too. Whilst reggae and calypso are very much enjoyed, zouk and cadance are also prominent musical styles. The influence of the English can be seen in the political, legal and educational systems and of course the St Lucian love for cricket. There is a strong Rastafarian movement on the island which has become much more political in recent years and is tending to influence the St Lucia Culture more and more. St Lucia also produces great artists such as Dunstan St Omer, who creates religious paintings, and with his four sons, has painted some of the countryside churches on the island. Llewellyn Xavier is an artist and environmental campaigner whose works reflect his beliefs. Ron Savory, Sean Bonnett St Remy, Winston Branch, Chris Cox, and Alcina Nolley are all well known St Lucian artists.

    St Lucia is an independent within the British Commonwealth of Nations. It’s part of the Lesser Antilles and the 2nd largest of the Windward Islands in the West Indies
    Saint Lucia History St. Lucia was first settled by Arawak Indians around 200 A.D., though by 800 their culture had been superseded by that of the Caribs. These early Amerindian cultures called the island "Iouanalao" and "Hewanorra," meaning "Island of the Iguanas." The first attempt at colonization occurred just a few years later, in 1605. An unfortunate party of English colonists, headed to Guyana on the good ship Olive Branch, landed on St. Lucia after having been blown off course. In all, sixty-seven colonists waded ashore, where they purchased land and huts from the resident Caribs. After a month, the party had been reduced to only nineteen, and those were soon forced to flee from the Caribs in a canoe. A few decades later, in 1639, a second party of English colonists under Sir Thomas Warner also failed in their settlement attempt. By mid-century the French had arrived, and had even "purchased" the island for the French West India Company. Needless to say, the persevering British were less than enchanted with this idea, and Anglo-French rivalry for the island continued for more than a century and a half. The island's first settlements and towns were all French, beginning with Soufriere in 1746. By 1780, twelve settlements and a large number of sugar plantations had been established. Two years earlier, the British launched their first invasion effort at the "Battle of Cul de Sac." By 1814, after a prolonged series of enormously destructive battles, the island was finally theirs.

    Identification. Saint Lucians identify by this name, distinguishing themselves from residents and nationals of neighboring islands. Although many thousands have emigrated to various parts of the Americas and Europe, especially during the twentieth century, this identification remains strong, even among those born in the diaspora. The question of a shared culture is contentious, for Saint Lucians are divided along many lines, yet there is a sense of belonging to a place, a locality, of which they have a sense of possession. One compelling item of common culture might be or Patwa, the French-derived creole language spoken by most Saint Lucians. However, many born and raised abroad do not speak the language, and Saint Lucians also recognize that their is virtually identical to that spoken on Dominica and the French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe.

    Saint Lucia North America
    CULTURE St. Lucia's culture has evolved from the intermingling of the many different groups of people who have participated in its history. Each has brought different beliefs and traditions, all of which are reflected in the life of the island today. A visitor is likely to drive on the British side of the road to an Indian restaurant in a French town, greeted all along the way in Creole patois.
    But St. Lucia's culture extends far beyond the table, as the island has long held a reputation for its intellectual and artistic talents. St. Lucia has produced two Nobel Prizewinners: the late Sir W. Arthur Lewis, who won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1979, and poet Derek Walcott, who won the 1992 Nobel Prize for Literature. The next group to arrive on the shores of the island were the Europeans, primarily the British and the French. Though the Europeans didn't settle St. Lucia in large numbers, they had an incalculable impact on the island's history and culture. The British and French influences seem to weigh equally, despite the fact that the French lost the island in 1814. To St. Lucia's complex cultural mosaic, the British contributed their language, educational system, and legal and political structure. French culture is more evident in the artsmusic, dance, and Creole patois, which stands alongside the official language of English.
