THE CREOLE – “KRIOL”

From its language to its food, the Creole culture is an infectious one!

Its origins date back to the late 1700s and early 1800s…

The Creole (or “Kriol”) culture remains a staple culture of Belize. Its origins date back to the late 1700s and early 1800s, when the then British Settlers and the African slaves gave birth to the “Creole” population.

Creole is a unique and adaptive culture which has evolved to include a mixture of other native cultures, such as the Mestizo.

The food is a blend of different cultures! Popular Creole dishes are universally enjoyed throughout Belize, these include: “Rice and Beans, Stew Chicken and Salad”, and also “Boil Up”.

With earlier concentrations of the Creole, primarily in Belize City, the culture began developing a specific dialect. The Creole Language is best described as a broken English dialect that is understood and spoken by all cultures in Belize.
