Scoping the Amazon: Image, Icon, and Ethnography - Book Review

Since the founding of anthropology as a social science in the late 19th century up through the end of the 20th century, the field has been one of the primary brokers of culture and the industry that surrounds it. Beginning with the founding “fathers” of the field and their desire to define culture and its subsequent particulars, up until recently with struggles over identity and who has the right to define that identity, anthropology has played a major role. This is particularly true in… Continue

I have been fearful of water all my life. There has been a reoccurring dream since I was 9 in which I drown. I am very frightened in the dream.



When I turned 40 a friend asked me to keep an eye on his kayaks while he was away from our island. I took one kayak out to Lago Guajataka and paddled across the lake. There came about a spiritual transformation on that water that cannot be put to words.



I have since spent many mornings hauling my kayak down to the water at 5 m so… Continue

The Lost Taino Tribe Documentary - Being Created From The Input Of The Global Community



I am a filmmaker - born on the island of Vieques, P.R.



According to history - The last Native Taíno revolt against the Spanish crown took place in Vieques

(Taino: Bieques Borikén). The cacique brothers, Cacimar and Yaurèibo, fought to the death on this island.



In recent contemporary history for over half a century my people of Vieques revolted against the U.S. military's use of using their island as target practise by… Continue

Blessings in the Water

43 freaking years old. Freezing my patooty off in the dark, in the rain, away from home, learning drills, trying to keep up with the experienced, or the younger, or the better, or the whatever paddlers, trying to remember not to use my kayaking techniques because I am a dragon boat racer now. Hungry, cold, wet, tired, sore, sick, frustrated at my inability to do it just like the lead coach, Alden, who never bends that inside elbow and does his trunk rotaion with perfection...



WHAT am… Continue

Dragon Wings

Last Wednesday my 6 month old grandaughter passed away. Possibly Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Two years ago on the same date my teen son passed away. These moments challenge us spiritually in ways we can never imagine until we are there. A well known artist in Japan and a good Canadian friend sent me a sculpted dragon (usually sells for $5,000.00 USD) in honor of my son. I was told that many Japanese believe the human spirit after death soars with… Continue
