Present Culture of Dominica

Dominica has a very rich culture that comes from its diverse mix of English, French, African, and Carib peoples. English is the official language of the island, however much of the population also speak kwéyòl (Creole), which is a French based patois. The clothing style on the island is strongly influenced by their history and traditions. Colorful garments are often plaid and batik-inspired patterns. Women particularly wear this unique style of clothing. The cuisine on the island is equally exotic, with a strong creole influence. There is an abundance of tropical fruits and vegetables, and an unlimited supply of seafood!
