"Carib" is short for Caribbean | "Cultura" is the Spanish word for Culture
Carib Cultura is a celebration of the beauty of Caribbean culture!
Mrs. Dorset, founder of Carib Cultura, LLC
I was born and raised in the Virgin Islands, U.S. and U.K., and was also fortunate to have spent time on several other islands throughout the Caribbean. During my experiences, I gained an understanding of different cultures and became proficient in several languages. However, one fact that was apparent to me is that we are more alike than we are different. Our ancestors were predominantly descendants of Africa, a mix of indigenous islanders, indentured servants and colonizers who have been scattered throughout the archipelago of the Caribbean. This resulted in a cultural pepper pot of our history, traditions, and customs, yet even though we've adapted different values, languages and dialects, our resilient spirit remains the same. It is the strength I learned growing up in the Caribbean that continues to propel me toward success.
For this reason, I celebrate the beauty of my cultural roots wherever they are planted. I have a desire to create and not only showcase our rich culture to the rest of the world, but to empower my Caribbean people. We possess similar customs and traditions, utilize the same staple products, possess similar cultural fashion and style, and consume the same foods, with each island embracing its own uniqueness.
I welcome you to celebrate the beauty of the Caribbean and the strength of its people. I hope it inspires you to discover your inner Caribbean goddess and embrace your own YOUniqueness. When you indulge in the beauty of Carib Cultura, I hope you awaken your self-confidence, overcome your personal fears, love yourself inside and out, encounter opportunities to support other Caribbean people, and ultimately discover your God-given purpose. Enjoy the experience!
