Throwback Tuesday: The Story of the Locust

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Last month, we re-shared a story with you about the conch shell and its history here on island. The story was told by Ital Delroy Anthony, one of the island’s cherished residents. Ital is a local artist, musician and medicinal plant expert. I could honestly sit and listen to Ital speak about the island, its people, plants and history forever.

Today we’d like to share with you a throwback video we took back in 2014. In it, Ital discusses the West Indian locust. And please forgive my atrocious camera work! I recorded this before I had a handy iPhone. 🙂
