The Story of the Conch

I bumped into a really cool man over at Salt Pond. His name is Ital Delroy Anthony and he is a native St. Johnian. He told me about the meaning behind the conch shell. You have to check it out.

  1. West indian culture must continue and be preserved. Individuals such as this are such a rare but unfortunately diminishing cultural treasure.
    Thank You for this post….

  2. Excellent post. I just have to add that our ACC dog Bull went nuts when he heard Ital blowing into the shell. I always wonder if Bull has any memory of being on St John – maybe this proves that he does.

  3. Italy gave us a personal conch playing lesson at the salt pond last week. One very cool dude. Wish I had more time to talk to him. Gotta get back there.
