Garifuna Americans

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Garifuna Americans or Black Carib Americans are Americans of African and Indigenous descent with origins from Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and Nicaragua and trace their ancestry to Saint Vincent And The Grenadines.[2] As of 2012, Abrazo Garifuna in New York, an event celebrating the contributions of Garifuna Americans to New York City is in its second year.[3] Abrazo Garifuna in New York continues to be held annually as of 2014.[4][5]

Garifuna transnational activism in New York City

Cultural Anthropologist of the African diaspora, Sarah England, has written one of the first ethnographies in a monograph length on the transnational migration of Garifuna Central Americans to New York City, "Afro Central Americans in New York City: Garifuna Tales of Transnational Movements in Racialized Space" (Gainesville: University Press of Florida, 2006 ISBN 978-0-81302-988-7). England examines the ways in which the experiences of transnational migration affect the social movements of the Garifuna in both Central America and New York City. She centers her analysis on family relations, community dynamics, economic practices, history, and grassroots organizing of one particular Garifuna transnational community with members traveling between and living in Limón, Honduras and New York City. Her narrative takes place in the 1990s on how Limón became the center of Garifuna organizing when members of that community challenged the practices of a Honduran large landowner and the National Agrarian Institute through the formation of an agricultural cooperative and ethnic social movement called El Movimiento Negro Iseri Lidawamari (Black Movement New Dawn). England's ethnography highlights the complexities of diasporic identities are defined both against and through notions of territoriality, nation, and indigeneity; such identities are defined against territoriality in the sense that they privilege the solidarity and identity of the geographically dispersed diaspora over the territorial nationalism of the countries of residence of its members. For Garífuna, the politics of diaspora are complex because they have several different homelands and different relationships to them: from the mainly symbolic relationship to Africa and St. Vincent to the more immediate relationship to Central America.[6]
