Based on the belief that an understanding of human history, thought and culture begins with a knowledge of one’s own history and culture, the Virgin Islands Humanities Council has established a publications program that makes available source materials central to an understanding of Virgin Islands history and cultural heritage.
The Virgin Islands Humanities Council's Humanities Speakers Bureau features thought-provoking presentations on a variety of subjects that will broaden your understanding of our history and cultural heritage. The presentations are free of charge to Virgin Islands non-profit community groups. We invite you to peruse the listing of topics and contact us about booking a speaker for your organization.
Established in 2003, the Heath Award recognizes the achievement of two public school teachers of grades K–12, one from the St. Thomas/St. John district and the other from the St. Croix district, who have exhibited outstanding ability and unfailing dedication to teaching the humanities. VIHC is seeking nominations from the public of teachers who exemplify this description.
