The Honduras Garifunas are proud of their culture. The Garifuna communities are strong, with great emphasis on music, dance and history. They have formed their own religion, the Dugu, consisting of a mixture of Catholicism and African beliefs, and speak a unique language.
Most Garifuna villages in Honduras are dependent upon fishing, which is carried out using hand fishing lines, nets and hand-made dugout canoes.
The Garifuna use what nature offers. The local agriculture is incorporated into their diets and dishes, such as “La machuca”, a food made of mashed green plantains with coconut milk soup and fried fish. This would be enjoyed with “cassava”, which looks similar to a large fragile tortilla, and is made from the yuca root.
