Welcome to the Official Website of The Kalinago People - Our Home...
Dominica is home to approximately 3,000 Carib Indians, descendants of the largest aboriginal inhabitants of the Caribbean islands.
We the few descendants of this once huge nation, prefer to be known by our original name, Kalinago. Our homes and farms are scattered throughout the reserve over eight communities. The villages ad hamlets are called Bataca, Crayfish River, Salybia, St Cyr, Gaulette River, Mahaut River, Sinekou and Touna Aute/village.
The tribe is governed by the Carib Chief and Council, who are elected by the Kalinago people themselves. A Parliamentary Representative from the Carib Council represents the Kalinago in the Dominican House of Assembly.
The Kalinagos continue to farm, fish and perform traditional skills, including canoe making, basket weaving, cassava bread making etc.
