I beg you please protect our history. We cannot have a future if we don't have a past.
No matter what u do I want to add my voice to this. Please, Please do all in your power to protect this site and new discovery!
Yes please preserve this find and check to see if there are anymore
It is unfortunate that St Lucia has a knack for destroying or not preserving its history - no matter in what field.It is sincerely hoped that the authorities (the SLNT & SLHAS) - and especially our government - treat these findings SERIOUSLY!!!Already, we are losing historical & architectural buildings at a rapid and pitiful pace.
I am guessing that the development and the burial site are within close proximity.If that's the case, it's highly unlikely that the two can coexist, therefore one must give way to the other.This will present us with a test of how much we value our heritage.I am really expecting a showdown between the developers, the preservationists, the government and the people. Film at 11...
St Lucians pay their monies and go out on vacation to see other countries' historic parks and monuments so I would hope that they can protect what belongs to St Lucia so that other people can come and see it too and for St Lucians to benefit from.
Instead of worrying about these findings, why can't more emphasis be put in a Local Museum. This can help preserve our history forever.
I do agree that we have to address the history and we have failed to do so sufficiently with any aspect of our history perhaps with the exception of our European history which adopted as if most of the population can take ownership of it without sacrificing their self-respect. Out recent political and other history is in a total mist except for works like Rick Wayne's and a few others.on another note, I do not know how many are aware that the Bay Garden's Resort is build on a not so old cemetery site. my great grandfather was buried there I am told. but I remember seeing graves there when I was younger. The same for the former Barclay's bank building(former slaver traders bank on the remains of descendents of enslaved Africans) and presently the CSA credit Union building.All this has to be put into context even as we address the history of our Amerindian ancestry.
i mean the pic looks rather trying to uplift our society as to the past but did these doctors use "soil age" to check for whether the soil is is over 500 years old or did they use bone age.not if its not an amerindian or could it be an african, indian or european. history ppl!!! Another good place to look is near the coast of micoud to vieux fort. dont u think dat there are alot of artifacts there? Or what about our THREE(3) tallest mountains that are pin-pointed directly under the star similarly to the THREE pyrmids made by the egyptians. I mave made my research as a Lucian, intelligent also or could it have been the Mayas or Incas that live further to the west like mecico or belize. i hope you know that these caribbean islands were joint to Estern America continenet and the African Continent and were seperated by this huge earthquake which then became Altanic and the caribbean sea.
Isn't our simply beautiful island up for sale? Those in authority have not shown enough interest in preserving our history. Nkrumah is right about that cemetery on reduit beach. I've always wondered what happened to the remains of the bodies buried there. Those dedicated archeologists will always encountere road blocks. You know the saying "money talks and bulls**t talks. It will be interesting to see who will win on that one.
