TV documentary VIDEO team on Caye Caulker, interviewing, old island ladies and collecting historical stories, of life on the island of Caye Caulker, by the Great Barrier Reef of Belize, BEFORE the advent of tourism pioneering by ancient ( 75 years ) old RAY AUXILLOU, patriarch of the AUXILLOU FAMILY
 CLAN, back in 1967.  At that time, there were only 90 lobster fishing families on the island of Caye Caulker.  Now the island community with a population of 3000 is one of the TOP 10 island vacation recommendations in the whole world.  FAMOUS WORLD WIDE!

The amazing, AMAZING production crew of the "Women of Caye Caulker" documentary currently being filmed on the island. The histories of select women of Caye Caulker, most of them in or close to their 80's, are being interviewed for an Oral History project. This is to preserve the history of the island for generations to come. I am SOOOOOOO proud of this project.
