Notes

Abstract: This thesis attacks the issue of identity as it is related to the Garifuna and expressed through works written about them and by them. The first chapter is a description of their history from the 17th century up to the present day and contains information contributed by Garifuna and non-Garifuna scholars. The next three chapters focus on the following works: Garifuna Folktales (1994), Uraga: La tradici6n oral del pueblo Garifuna (1999), and Adeija Sisira Gererun Aguburigu Garinagu: El Enojo de las Sonajas: Palabras del Ancestro (1997). All of these works are written by Garifuna authors and contain cultural expressions such as folktates, stories, songs, dances, and poems. There is also an appendix where the twelve stories which comprise the third chapter are summarized. It is through literary analysis of these works and more specifically these cultural expressions, that the forum for discussion on Garifuna identity is created. The Garifuna have survived in spite of many obstacles by adapting and incorporating particular aspects of their surrounding environments into their own culture. They have, however, managed to retain something that is regarded by both scholars and the Garifuna themselves: a unique and culturally rich identity.
