Roots of Dominica

Dominica is home to a wide variety of people. Although historically occupied by several native tribes, the Taíno tribes and the Caribbean Islands (Kalinago) were maintained at the time when European settlers arrived on the island. "Massacre" is the name of a river dedicated to the murders of native villagers by French and British settlers, because the river turned blood red for days. Each one (French and British) claimed the island and imported slaves from Africa. The remaining Caribs now live in a 3,700-acre (15 km2) Territory on the east coast of the island where they elect their own boss.
Dominica is often seen as a society that is migrating from collectivism to that of individualism. The economy is a developing one that previously depended on agriculture. The signs of collectivism are evident in the small towns and villages that spread throughout the island.

Girls in Dominica National Dress

The Madras, also called Jip or Jupe, is the national dress of the countries of Dominica and Santa Lucia, traditional five-piece derived from the Wob Dwyiet, a large tunic worn by the first French settlers and its name is derived from the fabric of Madras and same that comes from "Madras" in India. It is usually a one-piece, one-color item, originally used as a sarong, which later became a simple tunic with holes for the arms and head, and a simple rope belt. On Sundays and holidays, slaves could usually use what they wanted, and through the money obtained selling products from small plots of land, they often bought colorful cloth. At parties and special occasions, free women and slaves wore colorful clothes, now known as Creole clothing.
