Travel photos : Dominica 2007 : Vieille Case

Vieille Case

Vieille Case village is located in the north of Dominica, not far from Pennville.

When Europeans first settled in the area, they lived there together with the Kalinagos (Carib Indians). Name of the village most probably comes from the old Kalinago karbays. The current villagers are mixed descendants of the Kalinagos, the French settlers and the African slaves that were imported in the area.

Name of the village is sometimes spelled as Vielle-Case. The Kalinago name for the area is Itassi.
