What people are saying about
“Legends of Belize”
Rene Villanueva Sr., Radio and TV journalist and host of “Belize Watch” in Belize.
“This is great stuff that is being done to preserve these parts of our history that is so important and vital for us.”
Araceli “lita” Hunter Krohn, Belizean Educator and Historian.
“...This latest presentation of Belize legends, myths, and stories just proves how firmly they have remained in our universal psyche. What GrissyG and Dismas have done is to use the backgrounds to pinpoint the specific locations in Belize and that is so unique. This is a wonderful addition to our very limited collection of Belize-oriented literature.”
Tom Tenowich, Writer/Producer of TV series “Saved By The Bell” and “Mork and Mindy”
“I liked how you said one purpose for the existence of these characters is to make young and old more careful how they live their lives and help them avoid trouble and horrors befalling them...Good work.”
Bryanna Allen Smith, Presentation Event at California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) Student
“Very enjoyable, Loved learning about the history. Definitely an event to do in the future.”
Silvi Morales, Culturathon event at California State University Northridge (CSUN) Student
“Very impressive paintings/sculptures, although feared in the land of Belize, it is a remarkable way to express and share them with the rest of this side of the land. Again, impressive and very skilled/talented professionals I have met today.”
Debra Wilkes, Coordinator of Corozal house of Culture, National Institute of Culture And History, Belize.
“Not only are the images amazing, the book serves as an invaluable reference source for Belizean Folklore.”
