Hey Dear,

Yes i am currently residing in the U.S Virgin islands, but i was born in the lovely island of Dominica. I am not sure if there are any Carib or Tainos living here, there might be, but some people don't like to be identify to these groups.

Hi Amoi (by the way have I ever told you I like your name?). Just wondering where you are and waving hello. :)

Yeah, I have been there myself, there are tons of Taino groups in PR also in the United States.

Hallo again!
Where in the Reserve are you and your family from? I spent most of my time in the northern parts (Bataka, Salibya), since I was staying there.
I'll get back soon with a list of questions :-)
Have a nice day!

Hi Amoi!
I am a social anthropolog from Sweden. I spent a couple of months in Dominica in spring 2000, conducting a field work financed by the Swedish Developmental Agency, focusing on tourism developments in Dominica, and especially in the Carib Reserve.
I was not able to find a place to stay within the Reserve, but stayed on “the boarder” in the Concord-area, where at least half of the population is of Carib ancestry.

I wrote a rapport when I returned home, but I have just taken up the subject and I will finish my master degree soon.
I had many Carib informants back in 2000, but I have lost contact with them. I interviewed the chief and other spokespersons for the group, but my big interest was (and is) to speak to the average Caribs and hear about their experiences and thoughts about the future.
Do you think you can help me with some of my questions? Or can you help me to get in contact with other Caribs living in the Reserve?

And as far as the history books go here in Sweden/Europe, there is a big confusion about the cannibal concept. There is (almost) no saying that the Caribs were cannibals – perhaps they are/were to few to pay attention to – but unfortunately one can read about indigenous groups in south America and get the impression that they were (are?) savages who ate their enemies.
Fortunately most of us know better and have a critical mind, even at a young age. :-)
