Dance of the Garifuna women

Parama Williams with Garifuna drummers in Punta Gorda 2016

Garifuna

the indigenous women of Belize

strong

determined women

inspire me

to dance

with my feet and soul

planted to the earth

my hips swaying

in the joy of life

celebrating the triumph

of resistance

to our enslavement
