The purpose of Garinet is to create a worldwide unification
between the Garifuna communities. Garinet wishes to reach all people
by exposing to them, the richness of the Garifuna history, culture,
tradition, music and also as a way to raise awareness of the existence
of this long preserved culture. Garinet wants to serve as a mean of
communication: to inform and to exchange knowledge at a local, national
and international level.

of the site, where gari, is a shorthand for Garifuna and net, is a shorthand
for network. In essence, garinet is mainly a composition of Garifuna
network, where Garifuna people have joined
their effort from all over the world to make the site the number one
