“Sydney Allicock is clearly recognised as one of the most respected and dedicated leaders in Guyana and this is clearly seen in the vast number of meetings (nationally and internationally) that he is called on to represent the Indigenous point of view…” – Iwokrama Director

Sydney Allicock has been called a hero; some have even suggested he run for President. The respect he commands is no pretence. He has earned it.
Even if his work wasn’t done silently – since there was always some recognition of what he was doing in the North Rupununi for the advancement of his people – it was his being named the Public & Civic Contributions 2010 Laureate of the Anthony N. Sabga Awards, which catapulted Sydney into the limelight.   

He has been hailed as the pioneer of community tourism in Guyana and is held as a visionary Amerindian leader who is not only interested in the economic development of the Amerindian people of the North Rupununi, but he is also deeply involved in ensuring that the Amerindian culture stays alive.

    Will certainly like to meet this gentleman on my trip to GT
    in November…his vision for his people should inspire other
    political leaders…nothing is impossible if you love what you
    do….let all Guyanese read listen and learn….we never stop learning.
    The way forward !

    Gente que faz! With people who make things happen, like Sydney Allicock, Guyana could go a long way to a better future for even its most vulnerable citizens.
