Drums of Our Father's Monument information
This monument in the traffic circle south of Dangriga's main bus station underscores the importance of percussion in Garifuna (and Belizean) life, with its large bronze representations of ritual dügü drums and sisira (maracas). It was sculpted by Stephen Okeke, a Nigerian resident of Dangriga. Up at the other end of town, at the meeting of Commerce and Front Sts, stands a statue of Thomas Vincent Ramos (1887–1955), an early promoter of Garifuna culture, who also inaugurated Garifuna Settlement Day.
