The people of Trinidad and Tobago have lost a daughter of the soil in Carib Queen Jennifer Cassar. That loss is even greater to those who were closest to Ms. Cassar, her friends, family and of course the Indigenous people of Trinidad and Tobago. According to the Newsday News Paper, Ms. Cassar was sixty-six years old and became the Carib Queen in August of 2011.
When the Carib people celebrated their long fought for one-off holiday on 13th of October 2017, we at Imagefingerprint were privileged to cover the event. We went back into our archives and feature for you, some shots of Carib Queen Jennifer Cassar taking part in the observances in happier times. May her legacy live on.
