About Chatoyer International
Welcome to Chatoyer International, LLC which was named in honor of Joseph Chatoyer, a national hero of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. His name was chosen because of his fortitude and patriotism to his country and the original inhabitants, the Caribs in the history of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Joseph Chatoyer (died March 14, 1795) was a Garifuna (Carib) chief who led a revolt against the British colonial government of Saint Vincent in 1795. He is now considered a national hero of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines also Belize and other Carib countries he fought for during the war. (Camillo Gonsalves, Permanent Representative of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to the United Nations, described him in 2011 as his country's "sole national hero".)
Chatoyer is the only national hero of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. A monument to him stands on Dorsetshire Hill, where he died. A play based on his life, The Drama of King Shotaway, was the first play written by an African-American.
