Hopkins is a coastal tourism village that is home to predominately Garifuna people. The epic story of the Garinagu begins in the early 1600’s on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent. In 1935, two Spanish colonial ships carrying Nigerian slaves floundered and sank off the coast of St. Vincent.
Most Hopkins residents speak fluent English, as well as their native tongue (a mixture of Arawak, African, French, English, and Spanish).
