Recently meeting Jorge Estevez, who has confirmed many of the thing I new were taino. But who has actually confirmed alot more things that I had no clue were taino.

Thanks for reaching out. I feel very connected with my Dominican people. My wife is Dominican and my roots are from DR via oral tradition but we just don't know what town. I will investigate one day. Jorge is a great friend and brother. Let us stay in touch.

Peace,
iukibuel

HI Juan,

Thanks for teaching me so much more than I knew! It has only been in recent years that I realize how many tribal people there are in South American countries, Puerto Rico, and so many other places. I feel foolish in a way, because this are all tribal people and I should have realized that - but sometimes we are so centered, because that is all we know and are always exposed to. This is why the internet is such a good tool for learning. With it, we can communicate with people from all over the world and learn so much that way. We are communicating first of all, on a human level and that is, what we are humans beings first and foremost. The American Indians believe we are related to all life in the Great Circle of Life, but I think we are guilty at times at not realizing that we are by no means, the only native people.

The 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, have you heard of them? If not, I will explain.

We also have a greater understanding of the unity of the Eagle and the Condor and that when we unite in this way, it will be a peaceful and powerful connection. There are things happening now and people who are being called forth to make this connection a reality as predicted by the elders and spiritual leaders and our own individudal histories which have existed since the start of time.

We use the term American Indian as a generic term actually, just like the term Hispanics has been used to encompass all latin-speaking people - which is not quite accurate, as I am sure you know. Many people will become offended if you refer to them in this way. We prefer to identify ourselves by our individual nations - I'm Cherokee, or I'm Lakota, or I'm Oneida, etc. I don't care for the term Native American, because I think anyone born in the United States is a Native American, being native to this country, the land of one's birth. It was once our land, but no more. It's a melting pot. However, history - Columbus, the mass murderer, went after your people first and was such a horrendous horrible poor excuse of a human being. I have read of the atrocities done to the Taino, and we have our own atrocities as well. I mean no offense nor do I hate anyone - but historically, the white man has always been one to take and steal and murder so he could take some more. The native people here have a word for them - washi'cui (wa see chu) which means not white or white man, but which actually means "taker of the fat," in other words, he takes more than he needs but he wants it all. Greed. The downfall of even the best of us.

I enjoy learning about people and I thank you for sharing so much. I told someone else, that the photos I've seen, reminded me a lot of the Aztec- but your people, the Mayans, etc., are an ancient people too. In school in the US, they brain wash us. They will put up a map showing North America and of the course, the maps showing South America and Europe. they will always make North America appear much larger in size - it's to make us think we are big and powerful, when in fact, we are a much smaller country that South America and many others. This is one reason why we have to get together and learn about each other for ourselves, without the interference of the politics of one's country and the rumors we have been taught to believe about any race or religion, which are not true at all!

Well, I've left you another mini-series. lol Have a good evening and my best to your family.

Hello Juan, Thank you so much for your warm welcome - I am very glad to be here. I am looking forward to getting to know you better, as I hope to get to know everyone here. Sometimes I am not able to be available as I'd like to; I have a lot of other work I am involved with an have an online American Indian/Indigenous news ezine that I started 8 years ago. It takes a lot of time and effort to do it, as I do all the work myself, but I enjoy it very much and I do it in honor of my Ancestors and in honor of all of our Ancestors. I lived in a very diverse city for many years, with people of all colors and backgrounds, and we had a very large Puerto Rican population. However, I never heard of the Taino people until I came online and then when I started my news website, I have met many Taino. We have so much to share and learn from one another. In Unity, there is strength. Best wishes and many blessings, Evening Rain Calling Crow
