Fodor's Expert Review Gulisi Garífuna Museum
Named after a Garífuna heroine who came to Belize with her 13 children and founded the village of Punta Negra in Toledo District, this museum has a number of displays on Garífuna history and life. Exhibits cover the Garífuna migration from Africa to St. Vincent, then to Roatan and Belize. Another exhibit is on Thomas Vincent Ramos, a visionary Garífuna leader who, in 1941, established the first Garífuna Settlement Day. Other displays are on Garífuna food, clothing, medicinal plants, and music and dance. The museum also has rotating displays of paintings by Garífuna artists including Pen Cayotano.
