If they do, their own people would complain. That would sound normal in a sense…. You go i forget where and a few districts in Jamaica have so many chinese businesses there they were even protesting …. The chinese were even caught selling plastic rice and Dog meat….. There is always and ulterior motive when the Chinese are involved in any business; this is just a way for them to get their foot in the door to take over Barbuda, they want land and uninhibited access to resources.

Big Chinee brother doing everything for us now. Using Chinese prisoners and all for labour! So all we do is tax people to repay them the so called low cost loans.

Better we forget bout independence and sovereignty and declare Antigua and Barbuda a colony of China! All that is needed is for the Barbudans to go back home and rebuild and repair. There was absolutely no reason for compulsory evacuation and when the Chinese rebuild Barbuda with those stack buildings, it will not be for local hard working Barbudans.

Those same Chinese will buy them up. Also Barbudans will not be able to afford to go bach home. When will the black people across Africa and all over the world wake up. We exchange real gold all the time for fools gold. If you were suffering like the Barbudans who do not have a home now, you would be commenting differently. The Antiguan government must first find out what the deal is.

Now Jamaica is doing good things for their people with Chinese assistance. Scriptures says owe no man nothing but to love them. The borrower is servant to the lender. With their money comes their gods. Negotiate with them to rebuild the infrastructure of Antigua and Barbuda; roads, drains, side walks, sewers, and water. Tourist and investers alike are accustom to properly paved roads.

As a matter of fact, that looks more like a concrete jungle in pristine Paradise. The government would be foolish to accept such an offer. The Barbudan people are not and have never been interested in a gross economy. They have preserved a beautiful island and a wonderful way of life because they are not greedy and they value the quality of the life that they have. Why do you think the Antiguan government and the Chinese are so keen to get their hands on Barbuda? It is because they have sold and sullied all of their own resources and now they are looking for more.

I hope the Barbudans rise up against this madness as they have in the past and preserve their wonderful community. The Antiguan government has been looking for a way to steal their land for decades — and now with this tragedy that has befallen Barbuda they have seen the resistance weakened and will pounce if they can. The Barbudans are wonderful and strong and resilient people and must fight to keep what is theirs.

Barbuda is worth much more than the paltry and temporary gold that is being offered. It may seem like a lot of money being offered, but what they have on that island is priceless. Disgusting that the Antiguan goverment have used a natural disaster to try and creep insidiously on to the island. The Chinese have gone into Africa and are gobbling up African resources like scavengers. China is severely overpopulated and the citizens of China are now roaming the glibe in search of new settling ground.

And si it is that whereever in the world they go they manifest their savenger qualities exploiting and leaving nothing for the native people. Will the people of Barbuda have to now pay high rent to these people. They own their land and house. What about the promise of the land given to your children generation that was promised during the end of slavery, if the Chinese builders take over the land to rebuild. But if is to profit and tax people we need to think twice.

Make them write out their intention. My name is Gerard PatjeI represent a chinese building company, im irish i live in china for over 8 years now ,we dont come bearing gifts as was said in a previous comments but we do come with a solution to create work and homes for the people that were affected and for future familys and yes we make a profit thats what business is all about!

Who in the Caribbean want to live in high rise flats. Slavery is over, if the government. Employ people to build the roads and infrastructure, not high rise buildings. Who exactly are going to live in them. Think very very hard. Buildings are not supposed to be taller than trees. Seems to me like if some barbudan leaders and people are waiting for Godot. In over 50 years they are waiting for all perfect investors and opportunities but this can never be.

The citizens keep leaving for greener pastures because of a lack of opportunity and work. The country cannot stay the same depending on antigua and nothing else. Perhaps there is a need for a barbuda council investment committee. De answer is NO.

To the people of Barbuda, I say, rebuild your Island as slowly or as quickly as you know how to. You do not need high rises from the Chinese. There are no chinese living there. In my opinion, with a population of , high rise probably means 2 floors. If the 2 islands acknowledge that there is a central government which is in antigua, as an investor or otherwise who else would you approach. It is then for the central government to discuss the offer or opinions with the barbudans. Yes the barbudans can rebuild their island as slowly or as quickly as they want but it does not change the fact that barbuda needs some growth.

In the 18th century, in the French colonial islands, slaves were barred from taking part in Carnival celebrations. They celebrated secretly in their backyards. African drumming, dance and song depicting their African Culture vibrated from their backyards. Benna derives from a West African word for song-dance that the slaves brought to the West Indies.

It was a lively melody set to simple repetitive lyrics that dealt with a specific topic. Introduced during post slavery life, which was little different from that which existed before, emancipated slaves had to find an outlet, other than through religious song, to express themselves and to forget about the social ills that existed.

Music that was simple and free, entertaining yet functional, was an obvious vehicle. Benna dealt with the bawdy, the scandalous, the cruel and occasionally the humorous. Benna provided slaves with a common voice. In the 's, benna evolved to becoming the newspaper of the people and provided an often illiterate population with rapid transmission of information.

The earliest traceable record of Benna song states - "Emancipation day is past, massa done cut naygra ass. In the 's and 's, a fearless character, John Thomas called "Quarkoo", sang "Benna".

He composed and sang on the spot. Some of the lyrics to his songs landed him in prison. Today, calypsos are used as a basis for critique and open commentary, mainly political and social. The use of double language, metaphors and folklore has protected the performer from censorship. In the 's, tourism and the influx of North American visitors to our shores recognised the need for organised entertainment in the new hotels. The first calypsonians performing in hotels were Dadian, Black Shirt, and Skeetch.

Accompanied by a string band consisting of two guitars and a bass made from an empty oil drum with a string attached, they sang about "Slap in han"- a song about a woman being slapped by an unseen hand. Many persons thought that this was a sign of obeah. The mid-fifties heralded the emerging national consciousness expressed in calypso. A series of political and union victories against the colonial administration and sugar syndicate were expressed in calypso as patriotism, love of beauty of country.

The Calypso competition reflected this with "Beautiful lovely Antigua" by Swallow, "Prosperity" by Lord Lee and "Antigua where land and sea make beauty".

King Short Shirt had won the crown fourteen times including three hat tricks. An electronic band made up of four persons, playing standard calypso rhythms associated with the three-note bass-pan of the early steelband.

The steelpan is indigenous to the Caribbean. It was introduced to Antigua in and plays a great part in the culture of the Island. How steelpans or steeldrums are made. Each instrument starts with a 55 gallon steeldrum. The face of the pan is countersunk and shaped into a shallow basin using four different sized hammers The notes of the steelpan are patterned with a dull nail punchThe bottom of the barrel is cut off at the desired length.

How steelpans are tuned. Each note is tuned by ear using a pan stick and hammer. The pan is tuned again before a bonfire a thirty minute firing. The steelpan is left to cool - after which it is ready to play. There was a parade of floats, troupes and groups, and a children's Carnival. It was not until that Antigua would celebrate its first Carnival that has continued to this day.

August Monday was a public holiday granted for celebrating emancipation of slavery. This was celebrated at Glanvilles pasture where brass bands played. Later in St John's, traditional characters such as the John Bull, the Moko Jumbie and iron bands would parade through the streets. The Carnival Committee, headed by Mr. Ferdie Shoul, approached the Government for support in declaring the Tuesday after August Monday a holiday so that Carnival could be celebrated over a two day period.

But sugar cane was the main crop on the island and the Antigua Sugar Factory management felt that production in the cane field would be seriously affected by the two day holiday period. Finally it was suggested that if the sugar cane production could be speeded up to finish before August Monday, Carnival celebrations on both days could serve a three fold purpose.

Groups and troupes together with floats sponsored by the business community took part in the parade. Navy and Air Force entered an annual float in the celebrations. Over a period of time a Carnival city was established at the Recreation Grounds. Colourful masterpieces were designed and built as stage settings. All the major shows and parade of troupes were held at the Carnival City. The early years of Carnival saw the assemblage of lots of cloth, shiny materials and cardboard fashioned into headpieces and body suits worn by the masqueraders.

In the sixties, the historical band "Pageant of Sienna" featured Roman helmets, herald crowns, herald trumpets, and Roman breastplates made from copper and brass by Frank Agard, a metal craftsman living at the Point.

The seventies ushered in the wire bending skills of craftsmen, as wire was bent and formed into a design and covered with shiny materials and beads.

Styrofoam, sponge, and glitter added to the array of materials. The eighties introduced manufactured items as aluminium and fiberglass rods. Bigger costumes were being made; poles were attached to the frames to which materials were added resulting in a fan-like shape.

Here are just a few early time Antiguan and Barbudan Christmas Season happenings. About three weeks before Christmas Day carol singers went around around town and villages. To add a bit of colour they would carry a 'Carol Tree'. This was a contraption made of wood with several arms like cross-bars. Japanese lanterns hung on these to give some light. It was a sort of large Christmas tree being carried outside. The radio now takes the place of Christmas greetings, but formerly it done by the carol singers.

When visiting a home, the opening greeting was: Christmas is now 7 days off,. We wish you health,. We wish you strength,. We wish you golden store,. We wish you heaven after death,. What can we wish you more? It was time when people really seemed to enjoy Christmas for what it was with little, if any commercialism. A custom was to make a new dress for each of the three days of Christmas, when everybody dressed to the nines. Acrobats showed off to their girls and others by vaulting over sharpened garden forks.

The tempo of the drum was induced to a frenzy, whipping the acrobat into a whirling dance and stamping before the leap. Compliments of the season. When donations were given, sometimes the following words were uttered: Long Ghosts were about 12 feet from the head to street level. The top section was a cylindrical shaped mask with cuts for eyes, nose and grotesque figuration of teeth through which a lighted candle would throw its illumination sufficiently to light the immediate surroundings.

The mask was inscribed on both sides - a kind of Janus Head effect which gave the illusion of the ghost facing you though the operator's back was turned. They were the dominating feature of the festivities in town and country. There was terror and excitement in the young and old. John Bulls were tended by a 'Cattle Tender'. The crack of the whip he would tease the bull. The bull would then shoot off in the direction of the crowd of children or grown ups and plough through them and they would scatter.

To absorb the blows from the whip they would stuff the back with grass or straw, like a hunchback. On his head he had a cow's horn clamped onto a rigid piece of cloth. His head was padded with a big 'catacoo', which was a soft support. The John Bull generally wore a mask, but sometimes that reverted to was blackening their face with grease and paint and sprinkling with a little fine chalk dust.

They looked very grotesque. Some of the best John Bulls came from the villages to town, but most of them were porters or stevedores, men who would hang around the rum shops on Long Street. Bands played guitars, saxophones, drums and trumpets. The Minstrel Band had a guitar, shack-shacks, mouth organs and bass pipes, blowing boob-boop-boop. But it didn't have any drums. Then there was the Monkey Band playing bass pipes and using a candy tin going toot-toot-toot like a conch shell - Oscar Mason, That was Christmas in those days!

We must remember these things …. Named after the word "Liberty" Desire to own land gave rise to villages, e. Greenbay was established after emancipation when people crowded into St. Murray's wife had an infant school of 30 pupils at Falmouth. Planters were unwilling to give land. Planters found it necessary to sell of some lands, e.

First mention of Cedar Grove when land bought for a Moravian mission. Owners refused to rebuild. Free villages The population of Willoughby Bay was removed to the upcoming village of Freetown. See more village beginnings and facts in the Museum's database by calling there.

Warner lived near Falmouth Bay. The English settlers in the village. Clarke paid lbs for fixing Court Ho. We have no guns".

Soon afterwards, as sugar workers began to leave the estates, houses began to appear near the chapel and All Saints village was born. Bendal appears to have owned an estate there in the second quarter of the 18 th century. By , Richard Oliver owned the estate. At the time of emancipation, it was in the possession of Messrs Hyndman, but it was not yet a village though since there had been a Moravian settlement on the estate. One Sunday he noticed an old black man by the name of Henry Cochrane, preaching and teaching to slave children.

Charles Thwaites chose the site on some gentle rising ground with green smooth grass open to the gentle breezes of Willoughby bay. It became the first schoolroom for slaves built in the West Indies. After emancipation it was included in the acre jolly hill estate, owned by Bertie Entwistle. By the Bolans estate had been split up into at least five different small holdings, and it is likely that the workers of these estates enlarged the village of Bolans, there.

Col Daniel Matthew was the owner in and David Cranstaun was the owner in It seems that this is where their slaves had lived. By , there was an estate here by the name of cedar grove, from which this village has taken its name. It was of 10 acres and owned by George Hart. Skerrit and later from , by the Codrington family. The origin of this village must have occurred in when a model village, consisting of seven cottages, was laid out.

He stated there was only one church on the island and that also served as the sole court house, so it therefore believed that Falmouth must have become the first town. The Governor said the houses were built of timber, thatched and a few shingled.

It was once a very large estate of acres, owned by sir George Thomas and later by sir Stephen Hill. There was no trace of a settlement here at emancipation, but in it was reported to be a Moravian settlement, which later grew into the village of today. Samuel Jennings owned a small estate with a cattle mill to the south of the present village. From until the estate was owned by the Codrington family.

At about this time the Moravian school, Cedar Hall, was established. The village of Jennings was formed around this school.

He came to Antigua to be more accessible to the naval yard so that he could get his pension when it became available. This was rare in those days. His hut was robbed in , and a letter in the dockyard shows London being warned not to honour his pension ticket Villages were often named after a person who had lived at a spot for some time, see also Willikies. The labourers in the neighbourhood bought up all the little freeholds with eagerness, as it was their desire to own land in perpetuity.

No time was lost in settling on the spots, which they had purchased. They soon framed their houses, and cultivated their gardens. Besides working on nearby plantations, income was also earned working as mechanics at the dockyard. Two years later a Sunday school was started. By , there were over 2, followers of the Moravians. As can be seen on the map, Newfield is central to many sugar plantations, so it soon grew into village status. Just after emancipation, the acre e state was owned by Paul Horsford and in by the water commissioners.

In the late 19 th century the Wesleyans operated a school here which shows that some sort of settlement had already started. It was greatly expanded when the estate was put aside for land settlement in It took a little time to develop as the peasants regarded the scheme with suspicion until the governor set up certain rules.

About the Moravian bishop George Westerby started the first teachers training college and was called Lebanon. The village probably grew, as natural resources were locally available to carry out the folk pottery cottage industry. He had come from Modbury in South Devon. He was a member of the House of Assembly in and died in Just after emancipation, Henry Gale owned the acre estate. This Village is named after the urlins family who were Antiguans of the late 17 th century. In , Thomas Urlins owned land in southwestern Antigua.

By , there were four owners of Urlins estate, Edwards, Lovell, c. The estate totalled about 80 acres. Six years later, it was an estate of 67 acres owned by Benjamin Lowen. Will Hicks was a well off coloured person, who once lived in the Belfast area. A t the turn of the last century and even up to the s, coal pots used for cooking were the modern improvement on the fireside for the common people.

Along with clay flowerpots, which were perhaps the only existing type of vase to beautify the homes of yesteryear, there were also jar-pots, yabbas used for roasting cassava bread-Bamboola and Jabba pots used to fill the domestic needs, rather than the antiques they are prized as today.

In fairly recent times, ash trays have been made for sale to the tourist industry. The soil, once it is mixed with water, easily melts into a thick paste to produce the colour of the local craft items to which we have grown accustomed.

The mixture is used to paint the articles after they have been dried. The pottery making process, including the baking, takes place in Seaview farm village. Most of the time is spent within that space, where in one corner there is a pile of dirt, a smaller bucket with red soil to make paint and a few calabashes. They use a piece of the dried shell of the fruit as a type of ladle to smooth the surfaces of the damp clay.

One truckload of clay makes many items and might last a month, and while awaiting use a wide plastic sheet keeps the clay damp. Preparation begins by feeling out the soil with bare hands. While churning the pile of clay little stones or any bits of grass are felt for. The smoother the soil the better. Gallons of water are mixed into the clay, it requires much wetting to get it to the right consistency — like dough. The wares are made by women in the time honoured way, without the wheel, moulds or by coiling.

The sides of the vessel are simply built up from a ball of clay, then smoothing an d scraping is done with a piece of broken calabash. The red ochrous "pottery paint" is made into a slip and applied with a rag. The pottery is fired in an open fire under layers of green grass in the yards of the potters houses. Pottery making as an industry is declining, so very few people understand the skill required for the craft. At present in , there are only six potter families involved in the industry and only three run a full time business.

In , there were twelve and in , there were as many as twenty. Earthenware is apparently heavy work for today's young, thus this cottage industry is dwindling. The Museum possesses more information on the Seaview pottery industry of the past, including an archaeological paper given at the International Congress for Caribbean Archaeology by Desmond V.

He had entered the very last minute before the dead-line, and made the design in only about half an hour. He rushed to buy an envelope to get the entry to the Administration building in time. Later he heard he had won! Samuel is an Antiguan artist, sculptor, painter and art teacher.

The winning design, together with the chosen anthem, coat-of-arms and slogan, was displayed on a board outside the Administration Building next to the Post Office, so the people of Antigua and Barbuda could see their future devices. That board may now been seen as an exhibit at the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda.

The Golden Sun symbolises the dawn of a new era. In , it was decided that seven full points of the sun should be displayed for many as twenty had sometimes been shown! It has been suggested that these S even points could represent the six parishes plus our sister island, Barbuda though the designer himself did not have this in mind.

Red symbolises the dynamism of the people. Black the soil and our African heritage. Gold represent together our tourist attractions, sun, sea and sand. The "V" depicted in the design by the black, blue and white bands is the symbol of victory. The plant flowers in time for each tourist season when Antigua and Barbuda should look its best.

In the first few months of each year at the beginning of the dry season, a pole or log grows from the central rosette of the dagger-like leaves to bear an imposing, showy golden inflorescence about 20 feet high. The Dagger flowers only once in its life time which is between ten and twenty years: Dagger Log plants grow in dry areas and are drought resistant, storing moisture in the succulent leaves. The fibre of the leaves was used extensively for hammock strings as well as for cords, ropes and handicrafts.

In the more recent past, Antiguans and Barbudans have used Dagger Logs in many ways. These they used for fishing in sheltered waters. Another historical use of the Agave has been as tinder for starting fires with flint stones.

The centre of the dead dried out rosettes produces a very fine dry powder, which, when heated, burns easily. This fire making method was used during World War II when matches were scarce. Leaves were used as razor strops for sharpening old-fashioned razors, and medicinally the plant was used for curing tuberculosis. A row of Agaves still makes a fine fence and is certain to keep out any intruder! The European Fallow Deer. Deer do not live on any other island in the Eastern Caribbean, but they have thrived on Barbuda and Guiana Island off the north coast of Antigua for centuries.

Deer are not indigenous to Antigua and Barbuda , but then no other mammal appears to be except perhaps a bat or two. In , three thousand were reported, whereas a century later, there were only about Deer were introduced onto Guiana Island sometime after , when Bethell Codrington bought it for raising stock.

There has been some confusion as to whether the deer were Fallow or White-tailed, but it has now been ascertained they are Fallow.

There are at least two varieties, black and common. It is no longer common to see deer in Barbuda. There are quite a number of them on Guiana Island on the north coast of Antigua, which are carefully protected.

The latter is quite common, and can be seen growing on trees and telegraph wires. The variety is full of flavour, juicy and sweet; it ripens to a golden glow.

The Pineapple was first introduced into Antigua and Barbuda by the Arawak Indians from South America about the time of the first Christmas and was called Boniama or Yayama by them and was believed to be food for the Gods.

The thorny leaves were used for producing initiation pains on young men, and for making twine and cloth. A tasty wine was made from the fruits and pineapples were also used for urinary complaints and for producing abortions. In historic times, the fruit was used as a source of vitamin C, and in cakes and puddings. Medicinally the juice is good for fever, stomach pains, wasp stings and sea urchin spines in the flesh. The leaves are good as a poultice for sprains.

As early as , settlers in Antigua cultivated the Black Pineapple near English Harbour, and they have been cultivated ever since on the south side of Antigua , particularly near Cades Bay and at Claremont. In heraldry, the pineapple denotes hospitality, and was seen adorning many fine pieces of furniture in colonial times. This large widely spreading timber and ornamental shade tree with nearly horizontal branches belongs to the Combretum Family and is related to the mangroves and almond trees.

The leaves are clustered at the ends of the branches. It grows from about 30 to 70 feet in height with a 3 ft. It thrives in damper places, such as the dry river beds of Antigua and in coastal areas. The olive-brown wood is very heavy, hard and strong with a specific gravity of 0. The heartwood is dark yellowish brown to black, sometimes with horizontal stripes.

The wood is rather difficult to work, but it finishes smoothly and is resistant to decay. Roots do not penetrate deeply, but are well spread out to benefit from small amounts of rain.

The wood is excellent for lathe turning. In historic times the strong timber was called Black Gregory and was used in making gun carriages for the forts, as the imported British elm rotted very quickly in the tropics. Formerly the timber was employed for durable construction, carts, gates, house posts, flooring, benches and marine piling. It also makes a very good grade of charcoal. The bark was used for tanning.

Because the wood was so useful, there are now few trees left, so we must care for them to flourish, as part of our valuable heritage. Names in other countries are: It is the largest nesting colony of the Magnificent Frigate Bird in the world.

There may be no more than twenty-five nesting sites of these birds in the Caribbean today. Visitors are taken from the village landing in boats to view the estimated 2, pairs.

The birds are approachable and do not appear to mind having their portraits taken. This turtle is distinguished from other turtles by its narrow pointed beak and because the shell often has a jagged edge towards the rear. It has been much prized for handicrafts in making earrings, combs, spectacle frames, jewel boxes and suchlike; hence this turtle has now been placed on the endangered species list.

It is not as good eating as the green turtle, which is also endangered. The picture shows a juvenile. They were prized, and perceived as a gift from their gods. Prehistoric seamen wore turtle motif jewelry in the belief that swimming prowess would thus be bestowed upon them. Healthy coral reefs are very important to the survival of hawksbills, as one of their main foods are the sponges found growing on reefs.

These sea turtles grow to about 3 feet in length with a weight of lbs. Here the Jumby Bay Resort supports the tagging of turtles for scientific purposes from June to December, the primary laying season. Females leave the water and retreat to dig holes under the Seaside Grapes, into which they lay their eggs. Baby turtles grow up in clumps of sea-weed far offshore, but many become food for other sea creatures.

Turtles from inches can be found feeding or sleeping when snorkelling on coral reefs. The largest are found on the fathom line over the insular shelf. Females nest times a year at day intervals. About 18, hatchlings are produced a year from Long Island , Antigua.

Hawksbills live about 50 years. Sand mining, pollution and building on or near beaches pose the greatest threat to our national sea creature. In The Globe Hotel served the best Hawksbill soup. Wood becomes petrified fossilised when it is buried in the mud of a pond or swamp containing volcanic ash. The same applies to organic materials, for example, fish. This shows that forests once existed in Antigua. At Corbison Point there is a petrified forest below the headland, buried under a inch layer of volcanic ash containing pebbles of lava that lay over the top of tree stumps.

These were silificied leaving even the most delicate microscopic details of organs and structures still visible today.

Unfortunately, the parts of the forest at Corbison Point, remains of a rare phenomenon, are being constantly eroded away by the sea. Polished transverse sections of petrified wood make attractive paperweights and other decorative objects.

It is an endangered item and a non-renewable resource that we must treasure as a part of our geological heritage. A fine example of a fossilised tree trunk, and other small pieces, may be seen on display at the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda. As Chosen at a Competition, Persons were asked to submit designs for both men and women, based on the Post-Emancipation era - in Antigua.

Much research was made at the National Archives and at the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda from old photos and post cards. The winner was Heather Doram. By , all slavery was abolished in the Caribbean.. Since then there have been many changes in the economies, governments and lifestyles of Caribbean people.

These lifestyles borrow heavily from the colonial past, integrating the European and African cultures, customs and religions with those of the islands. This is really apparent in our language, music, food, religions and forms of dress. Madras was a very popular material in the post-emancipation period. The winning design was fashioned after the outfit actually worn by market vendors and cake makers in Antigua and Barbuda as far back as It features a madras dress with a gathered waist and puff sleeves, over which is worn a starched white apron.

These aprons were sewn on by hand, utilising frills, lace, several tucks, and pockets. Each lady did her best to outdo the other, and would throw on all her jewelry.

A variety of matching headgear can be worn with this ensemble: The male outfit features a madras waistcoat over a starched white shirt with full sleeves. Black pants, white socks and black shoes complete the ensemble. The straw hat sports a matching madras band. The madras used in these designs was chosen for its symbolism: As won in a Competition, In a competition was held to determine a national anthem for the upcoming Independence in Association with Great Britain, which was to be attained on 27 February Several months after the competition Mr.

Novelle Richards, who later changed his last two lines to fit the music on the suggestion of Mr. Chambers, submitted the words separately. Chambers was a church pipe organist and piano tuner and Mr. Richards a well-known unionist, poet, journalist and author. At the time of full independence in , the first eight lines were modified to include Barbuda.

There is an original notice board in the Museum that was hung in at the Administration Building informing Antiguans and Barbudans of what their new Flag and Anthem would be.

The first eight lines of Fair Antigua we salute thee. Proudly we this Anthem raise. To thy glory and thy beauty.
