Greetings. I am Greg Cronin from Colorado, but I also live in Haiti about 4 months a year. I am not indigenous to America, but I partner with many Native Americans in Colorado to involve indigenous values, knowledge, and practice to land stewardship, through Woodbine Ecology Center. I want to do the same thing in Haiti, and hope to connect with Taino who would be interested in doing this in Haiti.
There is an opportunity to begin discussions this June in San Juan, Puerto Rico, at the International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment, held June 11-14. (http://ieaonline.org/?page_id=68).
PS. You can see some of the work I do in Haiti here: http://yonsellanmou.org/. I am proud that our NGO is majority Haitian.
Greetings brother....I wonder if we could chat about this subject on the phone. I will send you a private message here in INDIGENOUS CARIBBEAN NETWORK with my telephone number. I hope to hear from you soon
