Hi everyone. Glad I'm here. I recently traveled around to learn a bit more about my ancestors. I always felt something has been broken in the family link.
My great-great aunt told me valuable story of my great-grand-mother. I learn that she was one of 11 children born in Camaguey Cuba. Her mother had left Cuba and came to Haiti after losing her husband and 10 of the children. Only my grand-mother survived. Apparently they never returned to Cuba. Not sure why but my aunt explained that "life in Cuba was painful memories for her" my great-great grand-ma.
I also learn that all the Taino did not die as the western world wants u to believe. She explained that some of the Tainos made pact and married the African while others married the Spaniard. To be safe, they fled to the southern and west of the island of Ayiti (Taino name of Haiti). I see some of the remnant at home, the water potteries, the jewelry, the Kreyol they speak and their appearance all are proof. I am here to fellowship and to learn more about my ancestors. I all I know I am. Proud to be a daughter of Africa, Arawak warrior and mostly a Ayitian daughter. Part of me sometimes aches of the European blood that may flow within me but I accept it it's me!
