The video presents the Garifuna Language through the eyes of perhaps its most revered composer of songs and hymns, Marceline Beata Lambey. The composition of the songs has a story behind it. The teller of that tale is Enita Barrett, nee Lambey, a granddaughter of Marcelina, who was taught the songs of her grandmother by her grandmother. This video is part of a Caribbean Indigenous and Endangered Languages website mounted by the Jamaican Language Unit/Unit for Caribbean Language Research of the University of the West Indies and sponsored by UNESCO at http://www.caribbeanlanguages.org.jm
