It gives me great pleasure to wish all Saint Lucians in London Happy Independence Day.
As we take time to reflect on our independence, our challenges and triumphs, we recognise how far we have come. We also recognise the resilience of our people
In celebrating our individual and collective achievements, we must endeavour to explore innovative prospects and opportunities that present avenues for further and future advancement.
We acknowledge that there is still much to accomplish and I encourage us all to continue working towards excellence to advance on the gains of the past.
Let us celebrate our nationality with immense pride and joy. We must renew our commitment to nation building and to our consciousness as proud Saint Lucians, as we pursue our aspirations at home and in adopted lands.
I wish you every success and a happy 37th Independence Anniversary!

Much of Saint Lucia's early history is shrouded in mystery and myth. it is now known, for example, that Columbus never set foot in Saint Lucia during any of his voyages.
The Amerindians, who were found inhabiting the island when the first Europeans landed, called the island "IOUANALAO". According to the Dominican missionary, Pere Raymond Breton who, sometime around 1650, composed a dictonary 0f the Amerindian language, that name is purported to mean " There where the Iguana is found". When the Caribs pretended to sell the island to the Barbadians in 1663, the name they used was "HEWANORRA", which makes one historian, Douglas Taylor, conclude that the name was of Arawak and not of Carib origin.
