Takaji Mt Relatives....Fellow board members

I want to thank all of the members who attended our meeting on Sunday Feb 21 2016. I feel it was a great meeting and a lot of important work was accomplished. I congratulate our Council of Nitainos for its commitment and dedication to Taino spiritual tradition as demonstrated during this meeting.

Please click on this LINK to access a PDF copy of the minutes of the meeting as submitted by our secretary Leni Sague, who although absent from the meeting itself did type it out for your inspection.

Let's have another wonderful year!

Takaji My Relatives....Fellow board members Please note that the annual meeting of the COUNCIL OF NITAINOS of the Caney Circle is scheduled for this Sunday February 21 at 4:00 pm. I will soon be making a decision on whether to schedule it as a regular conference call, in which case I will be providing you with a telephone number that you can use to connect with the rest of us this sunday, or whether to use some other communication vehicle. I will be sending each one of you a copy of the minutes of last year's meeting and a copy of my annual report as chief behike of the circle. There are new exciting developments due to be discussed at this year's meeting so I am looking forward to chatting with all of you this coming Sunday. Seneko Kakona

Takaji My Relatives....It is February again and a year has passed since the last meeting of the Council Of Nitainos of the M.E.C.G. Caney Indigenous Spiritual Circle. It is time to schedule this year's meeting. Please submit to me as soon as you can your preferred date from the ones listed bellow so that we can schedule our next meeting. I will soon be sending you the minutes of last year's meeting along with a full Behike Bo report which documents the activities of the Caney Circle since our last meeting. If you have been following our blog posts you pretty much have an idea already of what this document will contain but it is important that I submit it to you formally anyway. There will also be a brief financial report which will include the fact that we were successful in opening an new Caney Circle bank account. I am planning a meeting with our brother and fellow board member Chris Cibaboinael Hansen who will guide me through the difficult details of bookkeeping using Excel spreadsheet program to maintain accurate records of our Circle finances. We currently have at our disposal an excellent Excel template specifically designed for small churches which I downloaded for free from an awesome religious organization website operator. I plan to keep you all updated on those processes. Seneko Kakona Miguel

Takaji My Relatives....From time to time the topic arises in regard to the legitimacy of an Indigenous spiritual organization organized in the way that this one is. WE have been criticized to the effect that traditional Indigenous spirituality is not organized in this way with a board of directors with a president a secretary and a treasurer. In fact this is just another absurd argument born of ignorance and malice. The truth is that Native Americans here in the United States have been organized as a bona fide  Federally recognized 501c3 status church for a very long time and continue that tradition with enthusiasm and sincerity rig ht into the twenty first century. Please explore this website published by the well-known NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH, which operates in many states of this country. In this particular webpage they celebrate a recent meeting of their board of directors and the election of new officers. Our own board of directors, the COUNCIL OF NITAINOS is organized along the same lines as this one. Please click this LINK to visit the NAC website

My Relatives it was a real honor to sit with you in council this past Friday during our board meeting. I want to express again my most sincere thanks to all of you for your participation in this virtual gathering and I look forward to working with each one of you in the future to bring to fruition the wonderful goals of our spiritual circle and to realize the spiritual dreams of our people and all people who adopt this path. Please visit the "Minutes" pages to see the finished copy of the minutes of this meeting submitted by Leni Sague, the secretary of our Council of Nitainos.   Seneko Kakona to all of you. Miguel

And again here I will post the file of the Excel spreadsheet for church accounting that we are adopting here at the Caney Circle.

Takaji My Relatives...Fellow members of the Council of Nitainos (board of directors) of the CANEY INDIGENOUS SPIRITUAL CIRCLE. As you all know, the next meeting of this governing body of our circle is only three days away. I want to confirm a few last minute details of preparation in anticipation to that meeting:

First of all, as you already know the meeting is a telephone conference call. I will establish a group call via Skype and connect with all of you all at the same time by either contacting your land-line or cellular phones, or by accessing your Skype identity. That is your choice.

As I have indicated several times before, it is important that you access the agenda here in the Caney Circle board of directors' group page and review it so that you can come to the meeting prepared. It is advisable that you have a computer near you during the meeting logged into the Caney Circle board of directors web page in INDIGENOUS CARIBBEAN NETWORK so that we can all see and share and discuss various online documents in that webpage that are pertinent to this meeting. It is also very helpful if we are simultaneously connected via facebook in the group message that I created exclusively just for us twelve people. By being connected there we can easily share documents and any other items that may need to be shared with each other.

Again....I want to offer my most sincere thanks to all of you for generously offering to serve in this, arguably the oldest and longest established communal entity of the modern Taino Resurgence.


Taino Ti Miguel
