Passing on Traditions in the Virgin Islands

Island elders pass cultural knowledge and traditions to younger generation.

Passing the Torch - Student Ambassadors of Caribbean Culture was designed to help elders pass on traditional knowledge about plants and trees to the younger generation. Elders held craft classes once a week for several months, and once the students become proficient in the crafts they will then participate in the cultural demonstrations that the park conducts at Annaberg Sugar Mill Ruins and at the Cinnamon Bay campground.
