Tracing Barbadian Roots in Para, Brazil

The Embassy of Barbados in Brazil conducted a three-day visit to Brazil's northern state of Pará, last January 30 - Feb 01 as part of its mandate to develop relations with the Barbadian Diaspora in Brazil.

                                                                                                                                                                            The visit was jointly organised by the Embassy, the Federal University of Pará, and the St. Mary Cathedral/Amazon Anglican Diocese under the theme "Barbados in Pará: History and Memory," and it sought to forge closer ties with the descendants of several Barbadian families who migrated to Pará at the turn of the 20th Century.
