Belize Cultural Celebrations Series Vol. 4

In November 2012 NICH with support from UNESCO brought together cultural activists and practitioners from across Belize to develop a set of resolutions for the safeguarding of Belize's Intangible Cultural Heritage.

In October 2013, the NICH and a team of cultural activists developed an initiative known as the Banquitas Action Plan.

This multi-year plan is being implemented and together the team have embarked on the documentation and inventorying of Belize's Cultural Celebrations.

San Joaquin Village was founded in the mid 1850's by the Magaña family who fled from La Guerra de Castas - The Caste War - in Yucatan, Mexico. Mr. Andres Magaña alomg with his wife Felipe Garcia de Magaña, and their son Vincente, travelled from Bacalar and eventuallt settled in present-day San Joaquin Village.
