JPF 2021 : Journée du Professeur de Français

This is the last video of the Patois month.
Discover the association of Bois Academy. We decided to end the Patois month with a little cultural reflection around the Stick Fighting in Trinidad, an important element of Caribbean culture.
Kalenda or Kalinda is a sacred martial tradition also known as stick fighting in Trinidad and Tobago. For the practitioners of Kalenda/Kalinda it is a way of life like many other martial arts globally.
We thank them very much and invite you to follow their work on their respective pages !  @boisacademy

In the last week of October, discover the association Mayoleurs du Moule. We decided to do a little reflection around the Stick Fighting, an important element of Caribbean culture. Originating in West Africa, in countries such as Benin, the Mayolè is a traditional stick dance very close to a martial art. It emerged during the period of slavery in Guadeloupe. Although it initially appeared in the commune of Saint-François,, it is now mainly practised in the commune of le Moule, notably because of the death of many practioners during the First World War. We thank them very much.
