On Saturday November 3, 2018, the National Garifuna Council in Belize held its annual Ms. Garifuna Belize Cultural Pageant at the Ecumenical Auditorium in Dangriga Town, Stann Creek. The pageant followed the National Solidarity Mass held the same morning at the Sacred Heart Church.

Six young ladies vied for the title of Ms. Garifuna Belize Cultural Pageant. They were Shenell Nunez from Belize City; Edreena Lambey, who represented the city of Belmopan; Latoya Castillo, Ms. Garifuna Hopkins; Royisha Mena, Ms. Garifuna Seine Bight; Fredleen Roches, Ms. Garifuna Peini; and Taryn Nunez, Ms. Garifuna Dangriga.

During the pageant, the girls showcased their fluency of the Garifuna language through their introduction and presentation which focused on an issue facing the Garinagu community or relevant to the theme for the November celebration, “Lawanserun Garifunaduau….Hadasi Sun Garinagu” (Garifuna Progress…...A Task for All Garinagu).

The contestants also performed various cultural dances and displayed the traditional clothing. At the end of the night, Taryn Nunez was 2nd runner up while Latoya Castillo was 1st runner up. Edreena Lambey emerged victorious as the new Ms. Garifuna Belize.
