Garifuna Americans or Black Carib Americans are Americans of Garifuna descent with origins from Honduras, Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. They trace their ancestry to the Garifuna, who were descendents of Arawak, Kalinago (Island Carib), and Afro-Caribbean people living in Saint Vincent.
