Why we have Garifuna Settlement Day.
On Nov 6, 1943, a Garifuna delegation consisting of Pantaleon A. Hernandez, Domingo A. Ventura, and T. V.Ramos petitioned Governor, Sir John Adams Hunter for a holiday in the south so that political recognition be given to mark the contribution of the Garifs to Belize. In particular as "pioneer settlers of the south".

What is Yurumein?

- Yurumein, meaning St. Vincent, commemorates the arrival of the Garinagu to Belize.

- This re-enactment is carried out on the early morning of Garifuna Settlement Day, November 19.

- This day includes a procession filled with traditional music and dance, a Mass of Thanksgiving and concludes with general merriment.

- Though previously observed only in the Stann Creek and Toledo Districts, Yurumein is now widely celebrated across several communities where Garinagu reside in Belize.
