The Taino Yukayeke Ya’Ya’ Guaili Ara (Noble Taino Village of the Creator’s Children and People) based in Bronx NY, is a Taino tribal band of descendents of the Taino Native American Indians of the Island of Puerto Rico, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Cuba and throughout the world. We call our tribal family The Taino Yukayeke Ya’Ya’ Guaili Ara as this is the Taino phrase for (Noble Taino Village of the Creator’s Children and People). We are composed of Taino families and individuals who are descended from Lokono, Igneris, Guanahatabey, Siboney and other Taino and Arawak tribes, families and individuals. We are dedicated to continuing, preserving and reviving the legacy of our tribal bloodlines, way of life and ancestral culture through music, dance, art, gatherings, storytelling, DNA research, and more. We furthermore are representing Tainos from other islands and locations such as Cuba, Kiskeya (Dominican Republic), Haiti and wherever Tainos may be found. Whether you are Taino or Taino at heart, all are welcome to be part of our family and Yukayeke (Taino village).
