As you pull into town:, three massive ceremonial dugu drums of iron will greet you. This is the “Drums of Our Fathers Monument,” erected in 2003 as a symbol of Garifuna pride—and as a call to war against the ills of society.
Dangriga  does not offer many traditional “sights,” per se, but there is plenty going on, and the town makes a good base for excursions around the region. Dangriga is the heart of Garifuna culture, and most of the town’s attractions involve seeking out some evidence of this.
You can browse the few crafts and music stores on St. Vincent Street, and ask around for the drum-making workshops, one of which is sometimes set up at the Why Not compound by the beach at Stann Creek. Drums are often heard throughout the town to mark celebrations and funerals; sometimes it’s simply a few people practicing the rhythms of their history.
Seeking out the town’s workshops can be a fun activity, and if you’ve got the cash, expect to walk away with an instrument of your own. Austin Rodriquez is known for his authentic Garifuna drums.
Other local artists of national prominence include painter Benjamin Nicholas and Mercy Sabal, who makes colorful dolls that are sold all over the country.
