Indigenous Dominican leader thanks Cuba for granting scholarships

Roseau, Jun 11 ( Prensa Latina) Lorenzo Sanford, head of the Dominican Kalinago indigenous group, thanked the likelyhood of Cuba granting young members of his community scholarships it has been offering for many years.

It is an honor to receive the Kalinago Chief Lorenzo Sanford in our Embassy.

This meeting is an opportunity to strengthen our cultural ties and work together for an inclusive and diverse future’, the Cuban diplomat stated.
