Film | Play Jankunú Play: The Garifuna Wanaragua Ritual of Belize (2006): Caribbean connections


The Garifuna are a Central American people of West African and Native American descent. One of their most popular rituals is wanaragua, a three-fold system of masked Christmas processionals commonly called Jankunú. This ritual is a unique blend of African, European, and Native American (Arawak and Carib) art traditions in which social and cultural identities are expressed through music, dance, and costume. As dancers adorn themselves in colorful regalia to mimic past foreign oppressors they symbolically affirm their identity. They perform stylized movements to the accompaniment of drums and social commentary songs composed by men. Descriptions of the three processions and dance styles are interspersed with interviews by Garifuna singers, drummers, dancers, cultural advocates, and scholars on the significance of rituals. Play, Jankunú Play: The Garifuna Wanaragua Ritual in Belize, places the viewer within the context of the Garifuna world at Christmas where music, dance, and art reflect the past to empower the future. Directed by Oliver N Greene Jr. 45 min.
