September marks Amerindian Heritage Month for Guyana. It’s a time for celebration in the country – there are activities and events in and near Georgetown during the entire month. In addition, Lethem, other towns, and villages will have their individual celebrations.
In Georgetown, the cultural extravaganza is surrounded by a variety of indigenous foods, drinks, and craft. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Embracing Our Identity, Celebrating our Culture“.
Read more about it at the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs website here.
I’ve captured some photos of the Georgetown celebrations so far, but will update this blog with more photos of village celebrations once September ends.
