Tour the Kalinago Barana Autê

The kalinago cultural village by the sea

The Kalinago Barana Autê offers a unique experience, sharing history and traditions of the Kalinago people (caribs) from hundreds of years ago. It is located along the banks of the Crayfish-River near the Isukulati Falls in the Carib Territory of Dominica. The site consists of a reception center, snack bar and gift shop. To begin your tour, a footbridge crosses the river and gives way to a circular trail leading to a series of small huts throughout the village. There is a Karbet which is used for cultural and theatrical performances. Kalinago (carib) traditional activities at the village include canoe building, cassava processing, basket weaving and herb collection and preparation. The kalinagos (caribs) are the indigenous people of Dominica. Full Story

The Horse Back Ridge at the Carib Territory provides some of the island's most exotic scenery where one can view the general development and sights of the Carib Teriitory and Dominica in general. This includes housing, agriculture, and beautiful view points of the Concorde Valley and the neighboring French islands of Guadeloupe, Marie Gallante and Martinique. The chain of mountains stretched out in the center of Dominica from Morne Diablotin to Morne Trois Piton can also be seen from this Carib Territory highpoint.
