On November 3rd, 1987, Dominica gained its independence from Great Britain and became an independent state. In addition to celebrating the independence, the holiday also honours the unique Creole culture of the Dominican people. Actually, Dominica is an island nation located in the Caribbean. Christopher Columbus discovered the island by in 1493 while on his second voyage to the new world. In spite of European influence, Dominica is one of the few Caribbean islands with remaining populations of pre-Columbian Indians. Moreover, most Dominicans are descended from African slaves imported in the 18th century. For a few hundred years, the island was under control of France and native populations. Then, Dominica became a possession of Britain in 1783. In 1871, Dominica became a federal colony attached to the Leeward Islands.
Finally, in 1978, Dominica was granted independence from Britain. The nationwide celebration actually takes place over the preceding four weeks. The festivities include dance, music, and a military parade in the capital city of Roseau. Below I have covered the Anchoring Script for the Independence Day of Dominica.
