Indigenous Caribbean- Yurumein
Co-Presentation with MUSKRAT Magazine
Andrea L. Leland St.Vincent 2013 105 min English PG
YURUMEIN your-o-main is an important UNTOLD STORY of Carib/Garifuna resistance against slavery that deserves its place in the annals of the African Diaspora. The film recounts the painful past of the Caribs on St Vincent and the extermination of scores of their ancestors at the hands of the British, while building an intimate portrait of Garifuna culture in-transition today. We are given firsthand accounts from both Carib descendants who remain on the island of St Vincent and voices of returning descendants whose ancestors were exiled to Central America; where Garifuna traditional culture was able to survive and flourish
