Name of Carnival Troupe ??
One of the Troupe's that I photographed during Carnival was a famous one that has been around for many years. Now led by Charles Matthew's it's called Indians. However I somehow think it was Indians and something, or something and Indians? I want to title it correctly on my almost completed re-deux on my webstite. Lots of new images have been added including my tiny apt next to the sea. I'll not offer anything for sale from the site. Might be a good place to visit for those wondering what the island looks like other than the touristy/pretty beach shots.......I explore the inner beauty and reality of the place - a positive reality.
Any regulars able to enlighten me on the correct name of this Carnival Troupe?
I think it's Traditional Indians but wait until someone either verifies this or corrects me.
That's it Tradiitonal Indians. You mean dem??
Big Brother, (aka promoguy)
You've got a picture for everything!
That is on St. John, no?
I love the new pics! May I say the name of your website? I saw you had a pic of Zulu man who does some crazy performing. Don't ask how I know, but he also does some strip dancing on the side in the same costume! (some local girls took me to some wild parties, let me tell you!)
I love the pics of your island apartment with the labeling. The arrow of the path of the no-see-ums was hilarious! Take care.
Yes on St John.
Interestingly, they have a program on one of the HD stations called Festivals of the World and the St Thomas carnival was highlighted and they interviewed one of the Traditional Indians.
For some reason I can't see the photo? Can I get a direct link to the site?
My daughter and I are in the Traditional Indians, this will be our 3rd parade. Here's a link to my jouvert, children's and adults parade from last year: http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=2106815000
I love Carnival!!!!
Ah, yes, I was missing the TRADITIONAL part. The link to my website is: http://www.bastenphoto.com and click on the link to the FUN gallery to see the Traditional Indians photo - now correctly titled.
Are you sure that's Traditional Indians? Looks more like Zulus to me. Also, this year Jesters are coming up dressed as Indians!
Preview works. Let's see if it stays.
SuzanneB - Oh gosh, you are right! Zulu's - how silly of me. Thanks for the correction, I'll correct my website immediately.
No problem 🙂
