Word has leaked out to a select few local, regional and International media sources that Barbados born Damon Gerard Corrie (of paternal Trinidadian and maternal Guyanese Amerindian descent) – well known to Barbadians as “the Snake Man”, may soon be well known throughout the Caribbean as ‘Barbadiana Jones” – he’s been able to watermark and copyright the pictures of the “discovery of his lifetime” and can now be fully revealed.

{ATTN: Article is now updated with Current pictures} He became the first person to identify and compile physical and photographic evidence of an ancient Amerindian culture of skilled stonemasons formerly inhabiting an estimated 200 sq. mile mountainous area of Guyana.

Since the culture area covers 200 sq miles (known so far) in the Pakaraima mountains of Guyana – He decided to name the long lost ancient culture that inhabited this region and left a treasure trove of unique artifacts – the ‘Pakaraimans‘.

Corrie says he has been searching this area over the past decade at his own expenses – purely to satisfy his own curiosity initially;
but realizes now that what he has discovered is too important to keep to himself any longer.

Never far from controversy, Corrie says he was careful to amass as much evidence as possible as he is convinced that his enemies in academic and political circles will not waste any time in launching their usual petty and vitriolic attacks and attempted character assassination upon him – in order to caste doubt on the veracity of his discoveries.

This solo effort on 36 year old Corrie’s part may prove to be an invaluable contribution to the science of Anthropology, and a vital missing chapter to the pre-Colombian history of Guyana.

Damon Corrie is a member of the Indigenous Caucus of the Organisation of American States (OAS), registered observer at the United Nations Permanent Forum on indigenous Issues (UNPFII); and member of the Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) in the United Kingdom.

  1. Wow, this is great news…let's hope they can find more pieces to further the story, but without damaging the area…

  2. I just wanted to thank Harry 'Crock'Hinds for the donation of a tent which eabled me to mount my October expeditions – which in turn led to the breakthrough I have been seeking for over a decade.
