The Garinagu are a lively group of people rich in culture and proud of their heritage.  They arrived in Belize after fleeing from slavery in St. Vincent in 1802.  Today the Yurumei, the “landing” of the Garinagu in Belize, is celebrated in an early morning reenactment of their arrival throughout the country of Belize. Despite the rain, the Garinagu sang, danced and paraded through the streets of downtown San Pedro. Here are images of the Yurumei held in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.
