La Confederación Unida de el Pueblo Taíno (CUTP)

La Confederación Unida de el Pueblo Taíno (CUTP) fue establecida como un consejo de liderazgo indígena del Caribe o “autoridad intertribal” inspirada por confederaciones indígenas antiguas así como iniciativas contemporáneas.

Sus miembros se encuentran en todas partes de las Antillas Mayores y Menores así como los Estados Unidos y más allá del horizonte.

El CUPT se dedica a la promoción y la protección del patrimonio cultural y las tradiciones espirituales del Taíno y otros Pueblos Indígenas Caribeños contemporáneos y las generaciones futuras. Con la ayuda del establecimiento histórico del CUPT, los descendientes de los primeros " Indios americanos " que descubrieron a Colon en 1492 ahora tienen un foro para presentar una voz unificada acerca de asuntos que conciernen atraves del Caribe y la diáspora.

Hola Roger,
I think I met you about 10 years back when Roberto Borrero introduced me to you and you showed me around the place where you worked helping youth, etc. I think so, but am not sure.
Glad to be in contact.

I am presently experiencing some internet issues so I hope this goes thru. El Americano is my brother. He was labled so by the locals and it stuck. He figured why change it now that many know him by that name. I tried viewing the pics you stated is posted but I didn't view anything bearing my brother's face or his small business. By the way my brother was denied help from the Labor Dept. because he was not born in Boriken. He is not the only person I know that this has happened to. You do what you have to do legally to survive! He really enjoys his little corner of paradise. I'll let him know that we chatted.

The Americano is what the locals have named him and it stuck. He is my brother. When you are told you are not a local than you accept it and move on.
The nites here are fantastic. The one thing I don't miss is the Boriken heatwave.
