Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a graduate student who's interested in learning more about Taíno revival and culture. I will be going to Puerto Rico soon and hope to learn more there. My research as a grad student has focused primarily on issues relating to North American Indians and especially the return of their cultural items and human remains from museums and archaeological centers.

I am currently interested in the pan-indigenous connection these groups share with the Taíno and other Caribbean indigenous communities. :)
