This district’s heritage assets is of considerable value not just to the Trinidad and Tobago and the island cultures of the Caribbean, but also in establishing missing links in active research on precolonial and prehistoric period which is the focus of my research.
There are also many options that have not yet been explored in the current furore that can find favour with the majority of the parties involved; that can provide the districts in question with speedy transport route as well as meet conservation and heritage objectives. We just have not opened our eyes to them yet. We are an innovative people. This is a time when we need to apply this spirit of innovation.
We have for so far fought that we have been written out of history. Here's the opportunity to write ourselves back into it, in a significant way. The options we choose should be to do so, otherwise, we would have only ourselves to blame for blotting ourselves out to perpetuity.
