According to a social media post uploaded by Commonwealth of Dominica’s Ministry of Tourism, International Transport, and Maritime Initiatives, The Kalinago Experience Pillar of the Dominican Ministry of Tourism is almost finished.
The Dominican Ministry of Tourism’s message reads, “Mabrika, Mabrika! The Kalinago Experience Pillar of the Ministry of Tourism’s Kalinago Ementchira is one step away from its completion.
According to the ministry, Cozier Fredrick, Kalinago Chief Lorenzo Stanford, the Kalinago Council, and other cultural figures from the Kalinago area had the honour to discover the Kalinago Territory with Denise Charles, Dominica’s minister of tourism, Ps. Lisa Valmond, and DDA personnel.
It further mentioned that several site visits were made in the Kalinago Territory. These included stops at places with historical and cultural importance, small businesses engaged in tourism, and the Kalinago Barana Aute.
The Dominican Republic’s Tourism Ministry stated that its primary objective is to record every part of the Kalinago Experience and create an action plan for the growth and enhancement of locations, improvement of small tourism businesses, storytelling, marketing, and packaging.
The authorities added that enabling tourists to experience Dominica’s Kalinago culture firsthand will improve the life of the Kalinago people.
