The historical village is interesting and interactive, with some locally made merchandise to purchase. When we were there the actual functioning village center was pretty much closed up for the day, so we didn't get to eat the local bread I'd heard so much about.

The tour was very informative and interesting. You get a chance to sample their traditional bread and to take part in a ceremonial dance. Although the Kalinago now live in a more modern society, their historical village is very pretty to walk through. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Last of the Caribbean Indians and beautiful black sand beaches. Take time to talk to these people and learn of their history and struggle with modernity.

Very educational with great people in this region. I cannot say how much i thoroughly enjoyedthis trip. I have been to Dominica around 15 times and this was the first time I managed to do this tour. Worth every minute and make sure you have a Kalinago meal! Great people, great food!

First, Carib territory is a reserve, a section of land in Northern Dominica where the Carib people can live according to their principle of non-land ownership; they share the reserve. So anyone talking about a village / a few huts and an entry fee are not talking about Carib territory proper – they are talking about a tourist attraction within... More

Kevin helped organize a well put together, fun and educational trip. On the ride through the rainforest you get to see more local flora than most of other "tours" offer. On the visit at the Kalinago territory we were given an informative walk-through about the story and life of Kalinago people. We even got to participate in the traditional dancing... More

However they are quite domesticated as they do not live in traditional huts and are fully clothed. They are warm, welcoming and quite skillful...there were so many souvenirs for sale but we only ended up purchasing a fan made out of dried coconut leaves & jewelry made out of volcanic rocks. Their main dish is Cassava and we tried the... More

I liked learning about the native plants. This is a start up community center so its not old, but the traditions are, and they should focus more on their customs and classes

Not a great deal to see but some might find the local handicrafts appealing. It is a thin strip of land that is the most accessible and this is lined on one side with stalls.
