Dominica (pronounced Domineeca) is the largest and most mountainous of the Anglophone Windward Islands. The official title, Commonwealth of Dominica, should always be used in addresses to avoid confusion with the Dominican Republic. It is 29 miles long and 16 miles wide, with an area of 290 square miles (750 square kilometers). The highest peak, Morne Diablo tin, rises to 4,747 feet and is often covered in mist. Dominica Materially, it is one of the poorest islands in the Caribbean, but the people are some of the friendliest; many of them are small farmers: the island’s mountainous terrain discourages the creation of large estates. In Dominica, over 2,000 descendants of the original inhabitants of the Caribbean, the once warlike Caribs, live in the Carib Territory, a 3,700-acre ‘reservation’ established in 1903 in the northeast, near Melville Hall airport. There are no surviving speakers of the Carib language on the island. The total population, which is otherwise almost entirely of African descent, is around 74,400, of whom about 29 percent live in the parish of St George, around Roseau, the capital, on the Caribbean coast. Other parishes are much more sparsely populated. The parish of St John, in which Portsmouth (the second largest town) is situated contains only about 5,000 people, or seven percent of the population.

Like St Lucia, Dominica was once a French possession; although English is the official tongue, most of the inhabitants also speak Creole French (French-based patois). In the Marigot/Wesley area a type of English called ‘cocoy’ is used; the original settlers of the area, freed slaves, came from Antigua and are mostly Methodists. Catholicism predominates, though there are some Protestant denominations and an increasing number of fundamentalist sects, imported from the USA. Click here to go to Dominica web site.
