A new book takes a look at the dividing line between new Caymanians and old Caymanians.
Who claims the right to call themselves a true Caymanian?
UCCI Assistant Professor and author Christopher Williams said it’s a question many grapple with on our island.
He said with growing outside influence, from both sides of the pond, a lot of what used to be considered Caymanian is falling by the wayside.
“I find it difficult to locate any true practice of Caymanian culture of old, I find it difficult,” said Mr. Williams. “If you think about the district heritage days, you know, those are one-offs I guess, but on a day-to-day basis, how do native Caymanians practice their traditional culture? I really don’t see it.”
