Kalinago Cultural Collaboration Hub Project
To collect, restore and preserve for future generation the ancestral knowledge of the indigenous Kalinago people of Dominica history, tradition and culture.
The development of the website (www.kalinagoarchive.org) is spear headed by the Kalinago Council. Kalinago Council is the official representative of the Kalinago people, and was established with the objective of governing, managing and controlling the affairs of the Kalinago Territory on behalf of its residents.
It is the first time that the ancestral knowledge of the Kalinago people of Dominica has been written by themselves. The website is recommended as the primary source of information to anyone seeking information about the Kalinago people of Dominica.
The Kalinago Cultural Collaboration Hub project is proposed to accomplish these two goals one; cultural preservation and accurate documentation, and two; restoring the bonds between the youths and elders in the community by collaborating on this joint effort to preserve our history so it is archived and accessible for future generations and cultures around the world.
