New generations of Roatanians are often not aware of the people that were here before them. They are sometimes confused why and how their own ancestors chose Roatan. The island has been accommodating Homo sapiens for about 1,500 years or so.
Roatan needs books written about it as any culture needs artists, writers, musicians, sculptors and poets. A culture that wants to survive and thrive also need chroniclers that document its past and its present.
