'Garifuna Continuity In Land: Barranco Settlement and Land Use 1862-2000' is an historical overview of Barranco through the ownership of house lots and farmlands. A village in the south of Belize, Barranco was self-settled by the Garifuna, a nation formed from the blending of African and Native American roots.
This book documents the land of Barranco, and its village lots and farmlands, the interplay between the formal government land systems and the informal systems of land tenure, as well as the geographical clustering of ownership, kinship considerations in the inheritance of village lots, gender considerations in land tenure, shifting locations of farmlands, and the continuity of the village for a century and a half.
By focusing on this continuity, this study can inspire others to respond better to current problems.
