Profile Information

About Me:
I am a late in life student of 51 yrs of age and a mother of two grown children. I am currently double majoring in Anthropology and Inter-Cultural Communications and considering a Museum Studies Certificate program to round out my education. I am an international
mom: I am a former host parent and retired exchange student coordinator (12 yrs).

I am Puerto Rican by way of my father. (I was 11 yrs old when I was told by my great aunt who was visiting us.) My father was born and raised in Barceloneta, PR. His family, both maternal and paternal have very deep roots in Puerto Rico.

10 yrs ago I found out that the people I descended (PR Indians) from were not extinct but very much alive and had a name, Taino. I have been on a journey since to learn more about my Taino roots and ancestral roots in Puerto Rico.

I teach photography for my city's Parks and Rec community program, volunteer as a writer and photographer for Indian Times, University California Riverside's Native American Students Program newspaper and have also written for a local community magazine. Currently I am designing, developing a new magazine for the Native American Family Center in San Bernardino called Native Family Magazine Eagle Spirit.

I have been blessed and privileged to assist the Piaute Elders of Las Vegas in their endeavor to create an ethnographic pictorial recording of their Pow Wow and participate in the sunrise blessing prior to the event. I also have been honored with the opportunity to meet, interview and photograph Navajo Code Talker, Joe Morris, an elder with a big heart and wisdom of great depth.
I look forward to learning from everyone here on the Indigenous Caribbean Network and making new friends.

Research Interests:
My wish is to one day in the near future go to PR, to record the elders speaking the oral histories of my ancestors and to photograph and record the rock art on the island before they disappear from environmental deterioration and human ignorance.

Love your artwork. Are you an artist? Are you the one who took the trip in the dug out canoe around Puerto Rico?
