    Good find...

    It hurts when people our generation and younger can't appreciate this stuff.

    Nice video. Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed the music too. The dance is similar to some of the dances done in Haiti. Big ups the Creole culture around the world!

    That's not good. Are any efforts being done to preserve the Creole? I know they have the Creole day and Festival but is anything else being done? Also do they teach Creole in the schools? I guess it should at least be offered as a second language.

    there are after school programs that provide classes. i don't know if it's still going on though been a while since i talked to any of the ppl giving the class due to some of them studying abroad.
