Tilou Kanawa in Salybia, Kalinago Territory is more than a restaurant. Offering authentic Kalinago dishes with a contemporary twist, Tilou Kanawa aims to be a center for the promotion and preservation of Kalinago culture and heritage.
The restaurant, owned and operated by Natasha Green, doubles as a souvenir shop, offering handcrafted traditional canoes, leather keyrings and souvenir t-shirts.
The name, which means Little Canoe, is a nod to her Kalinago heritage and an attempt to preserve the fast-dying language of Dominica’s first people.
