People and Culture

The island’s rich and complex culture reflects its ethnic diversity and its agitated history. The native population, recognized as  ¨Raizal¨; is mixed, ¨Mestizo¨, and predominantly black. The Island houses around 5.000 inhabitants, most local, but a small portion is comprised of Immigrating Continentals. Influence from the
Puritanical, Anglophone Caribbean, and mainland Colombian customs are still strong.


In Providence, there is freedom of religion, but the predominant beliefs are those of Catholics, Baptists, and Adventists.

 

Traditional music and dance are made up of a base of our European ascendence with Afro-Caribbean roots, now mixed Reggae, Reggaeton, Socca, Champeta, and Vallenato. Gastronomy is just as diverse as our culture, however, Sea produce is the common denominator in most cases, greatly represented by dishes such as
Rondón, minced fish, fish balls, crab soup, and fish stew.


In Providence Island, people speak both English and Spanish, but the main language spoken is the native Creole, of Anglo roots.

 

Examples of traditional activities and hobbies locals engage in is horse racing on the beach, tómbolas (raffles), community work, carnivals, and cultural festivals commemorating national and religious holidays. Islanders make great friends: joyful, puritanical, kind, caring, and giving. We know how to turn out the best
parties.

Fishing is the main traditional activity. The islander knows it to a T and utilizes extraction techniques both adequate and friendly to the delicate local environment, adapted to protect the fragile Reef Barrier, which in turn protects our people.

 

Specifically, these artisanal approaches are fish pot, fish hook, and free diving. the main types of fish caught are Lobster, King Conk, Snapper (pargos), Rock Fish (mero), and many more.
