Santa Mission, West Bank Demerara, Guyana

Santa Mission is a small Amerindian village with Arawak and Carib inhabitants on the Pokerero Creek (off the Demerara River). The magnificent tree is a silk cotton tree (see Melville's Ventriloquist's Tale, p. 218), planted by the British. A craft shop sells local crafts, especially weaving.
