Just in case you missed it, the Lokono-Arawak and Karifuna-Carib tribes (no we are not going to use the word “nations”) have laid claim to Culpepper Island off the eastern coast of Barbados.
From a media release…
… We the descendants of Princess Marian — daughter of the last Hereditary Lokono-Arawak Chief Amorotahe Haubariria (Flying Harpy Eagle) of the Eagle Clan Lokono-Arawaks resident on this island now known as Barbados, and the Karifuna-Carib ambassadors from the island now known as Dominica — do hereby jointly re-claim from the Government of Barbados – the small uninhabited island outcrop known to locals as Culpepper Island.
Ever seen the rocks of Culpepper Island? These folks have to be pretty desperate – except that they don’t really want Culpepper Island. This is just a strategy to gain a foothold and recognized status in a far greater land claim. Just a thin edge of the wedge.
