I am from Maricao, Puerto Rico, with indigenous ancestry on my mother's side. I'm a professional writer. I have just started traveling full time in my custom built RV, writing about environmental issues for radio and my blog. You can follow my travels at www.auroralevinsmorales.com
Ph.D. in Women's Studies and Puerto Rican History.
Indigenous Caribbean history and culture in general, contemporary political struggles, and building ties with other indigenous people in the Americas. Indigenous role in in ecological activism.
I wrote a book called Remedios: Stories of Earth and Iron from the History of Puertorriqueñas, which retells the history of the Atlantic world through the lives of Puerto Rican women and all our kin.
Fantastic, Aurora, many thanks for joining! You are already mastering some of the key features of this sometimes weirdly functioning site, but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. In the meantime, a very warm welcome and many thanks again for joining.
Incidentally, as a writer, you might want to "meet" Lesley-Ann Brown (Trinidadian, US) and Oronde Ash (Vincentian, US), both on this network.
