Garifuna Dictionary Goes Electronic

Filed under: belize,global islands — admin @ 7:00 am

In 1975, Jesuit priests John Stochl published volumes 1, 2 and 3 of the dictionary of Central American Garifuna. It’s considered the definitive work on the Garifuna language and now just in time for Settlement Day, it is being released in an electronic format on a compact disc. It’s the combined effort of the Belizean Studies Resource Center and the National Garifuna Council. They hope this new effort leads to the preservation and grater use of the language. The new digital work will be formally presented to the National Garifuna Council at the official ceremonies on November 19th in Dangriga Town.
