have you come across any books on symbols of natives (art, decor, textiles) I am starting a research project on Native tribal markings and motifs and thought I might see if you have come across anything interesting in your travels.

Hey Kawe, Intersting post you left me.

You asked if I speak taino. The answer is yes and no. The last person in dominican republic to speak the full taino language past away 1850 I belive. I think that more or less its the same for puerto rico and cuba. I will have to asked Jorge Estevez who is a taino from dominican rep. He works in the native american mussuem and bring many many indigenous people from diffrent tribes together. But luckly for us taino's he also works in the resurgence of our people. He has great knowlege of all native things including archoelogy , anthropolgy etc etc. Many things on my taino ancestors myth, gods, tradition, culture etc etc.


Yes, we speak taino. because many of dominican, puerto rican and cuban spanish actually have many tainos words. Words that sometime we are not even aware of that are taino. As a matter of fact if you speak english you have already used taino words, hurricane, potatoe, canoe, hammock, barbeque there are more I cant remember. The spaniards too have absorb some of taino words into there language. Keep in mind many of european plates have indigenous fruits and veggies from this continent. What would pasta be with out tomatoe (indigenous name and fruit) Ireland pride themself on there potatoe (obvously onother indigenous veggie) there are many plates threw europe that if it wasnt for our continent they would not have. Chocolate being one of them too. Swedish just added sugar to it and made it there own. Anways. our spanish esepcially in the parts of the island that are more mountanes and have a more indigenous population. Are actually seasoned with taino pronounciation. Alot of people think that its a very hick way of speaking. But its spanish with a taino accent. Till this day can be heard with tainos from dominican rep, puerto rico and cuba.

I do know that many are trying to revive our languge. I feel it shouldnt be that hard cause we are using many taino words already. Obviosly things have changed. My mom told me that three generation back on both side my parents relatives had taino first name and middle names. Now some taino names are used but not as much as back then.

Hey, joy thanx for you reply. I read that your a full ameridian. Do you still speak your peoples original tounge. dominican, puerto rican and cuban spanish has many taino words. I am hoping that in my lifetime my people can revive our original language. I mean we are using so many words as it is. Anyways enjoy your holliday.

Sorry I should have read the below comments first. I see your not originally from columbia. But if you know the answer that would be appreciated. I will probably look it up on the net anyways.
