I am a 57 year old mother of 3. I am a spiritual seeker. I am not a descendant of Taino ancestry in this lifetime. However I was spoken to by artifacts telling me I was a Taino at the time of the Spanish invasion. I was told this many years ago while visiting Dominican Republic with Healing the Children. Recently a visit with KAB the Crystal Skull that was found in the waters off Cuba, informed me that this was true and instructed me to honor this past lifetime by working with crystals in the waters. I humbly seek knowledge on this website as to how to honor the Taino experience in my past. Thank you.
Taino history and culture, sacred beliefs

I’m a 66 year old Boricua who was born in “El Barrio” NYC. That’s 99th St. & 2nd Avenue for those who are not clear where “El Barrio” is.
At this late stage of my life, I’m really trying to connect with “like-minded” individuals who consider themselves “Expatriates.” I know the literal translation of expatriate is someone who was born in one country, but currently lives in another country. However, in researching the definition of “Expatriate,” I’ve found that it is really up to individual interpretation! So, that being said, I consider myself “Puertoriqueño” by virtue of the fact that my parents were both born in Puerto Rico, migrated to the US, and I was born in NYC. Not my fault, not my choice, but there’s are millions just like me, so it is what it is.
As a recent member of the Indigenous Caribbean Network, I’d like to connect and interact with other “Boricuas” in my geographic. I live in Southern NJ. I own a 1 1/2acre farm with a 100+ year old home. To provide some context; I grew up on the streets of El Barrio (1965-1975), was in the drug game (1975-1990), went to prison (1990-1994), saw the light, and worked in non-profit (1994-2006) trying to give back and reconcile my past with my present. I became semi-retired after working in Camden, NJ for 3 years.
So that’s the long and the short of my life. I want to connect with other Boricuas in my geographic.

We can take it from there if you’re feeling adventurous!!!
