Atkinson School, Dominica

In a ground-breaking initiative, pupils from Year 6 (the top year of primary level) of Atkinson school, Dominica, wrote the words for The Snake King of the Kalinago. They were supported by their teacher Micheline Bruno and the school principal, Alice Laronde.

The project was co-ordinated by educational psychologist Jamie Sorhaindo and workshop support was provided by literacy specalist Chris Lawrence.

The illustrations were produced in the early 1990s in a workshop by a Carib Territory youth group.
