The story of Belizean Independence is as colourful as the country itself. From the first nomadic peoples who settled to establish the incredible Maya civilisation beginning in 1800 BC, to the legendary Baymen and the pirates, slaves, adventurers, explorers and other settlers who followed, Belize has grown with a certain rugged independence and sense of fair play. It was only natural that even with many obstacles to overcome, the people would, without resorting to violence or warfare, demand and receive their independence. This sense of victory is very still fresh and very much alive in Belize today, and is at no time more apparent than during September.
