BALICEAUX is one of the
Grenadines islands which lie between the
Caribbean islands of Saint Vincent and
Grenada . Politically, it is
part of the nation of Saint Vincent and the
Grenadines . This island
was the site where the English army banished about 5000 Black Caribs
following the defeat of Carib Chief
Joseph Chatoyer in the 1790s. Half
of them died in this concentration camp. The others were deported to
the island of Roatán, Honduras. Their descendants live today as the
Garifuna people in Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and in the
USA. As a mark of respect,
Baliceaux is visited yearly by Caribs and
Government officials to remember.
