FCC One Year Update
One year ago, we announced our transition from a bar and restaurant to a cultural center. Since then we have gone through so much. At times it seemed as if this was the wrong decision but our ancestors and the universe made it loud and clear that this is the way to go. Our journey didn’t start one year ago, in retrospect, I realize that our journey started in 2008, way before the thought of living in Roatan came to our minds.
In the past year, we have met so many people who support this idea, we’ve partnered up with individuals and organizations on the island and we’ve gotten to know more people in our community. A lot of seeds have been sown and we are looking forward to witnessing the reaping of these efforts. Now more than ever our mission has converted into a burning desire and that flame has become unstoppable. This runs deeper than getting tourists to visit or getting more likes on Facebook. To preserve our Garifuna roots and to empower our people is the assignment that the most high has given us and we won’t stop until this comes to pass. Even when it comes to pass, we will continue. This video is dedicated to our late friend and former teammate, Pablo Cacho. You understood our vision when everyone else thought we were crazy, R.I.P.
