Charles Williams and indigenous issues in St Vincent and the Grenadines

Published on Friday, August 15, 2008

Reprinted from Caribbean Net News

By Paul Lewis

The historic Kalinago people of St Vincent are on the ‘brink of extinction,’ said Chief Charles Williams, leader of the Carib Community in Dominica, after he wrapped up a three day visit to St Vincent and the Grenadines on August 6. Williams was warmly welcomed by residents of Sandy Bay as he sought to re-establish the links between the Caribs of… Continue

The Archeologist's Dream - Hummingbird in Cosmic Time

This was done in 2002 -- again what would archeologists love to find and display even though they would have very little idea of the true meanings of the symbols. It was originally a goache drawing done from my imagination and manipulated in photoshop. I had also thought that the "cage" could be made into a ceremonial headpiece.

Chat is working again (for now?)

Hello again everyone. I did absolutely nothing to try to fix whatever problem was causing chat not to work, all I did was to merely go into the chat room to check again, and for some reason it is now working. I wish I knew what the problem was before, and what I might have needed to do to fix this...but this self-healing chat room seems to have cut things short for me. Anyway, good news, you can now use it.

About CHAT being offline

I feel like a child, not knowing how it is that a service that I created, and basically own and run, won't even let me in. In fact, it seems it won't let anyone in -- it must be very selfish software that is happy to be left alone just talking to itself. I will try to figure out what is wrong, wish me luck, but I am sorry to have let down people who wanted to use it. I might have to rebuild it completely. I will post another message as soon as it seems to be working again.

Meet Joshua Torres, the new site co-administrator

Hello again everyone, just some network news: given how absent I have been, and how great Joshua has been at meeting and greeting, I asked him to take on the job of co-administrating, which I am glad he accepted. So, if you have any troubles, there are now two people you can contact: Joshua and myself. Now this might also mean that Joshua can expel me, so I will have to be on my best behaviour for a change.

This place is really coming to life!

I have been absent for a while, and I missed welcoming many new members. I also noticed that many of the new members really have become experts at using the site, and have actively produced their own personal blog posts. To make sure that others know of your posts, as it gets busier in here, drop me a note, and I will make sure to feature your blog on the front page.

Our visit to The Natl Museum of The American Indian in April

Tau My Relatives back in April 2008 the Bohio Ata Bey Taino Women's Council invited a number of community members to gather at a special community resource facility of the Smithsonian's NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN to spend some time and perform sacred ceremony with ancient Taino artefacts housed in that Washington D.C. area facility.

A Note from Max Forte: On the future of the CAC and KACIKE

Dear friends, if you will allow me a personal announcement, this might be of some minimal interest to a few readers of this blog.

By the end of this year I will have formally withdrawn from the Caribbean Amerindian Centrelink, which will either pass into new hands, some new hands, or none and remain archived online at a new location. The current location of the CAC is at…

Questions about Race...and Photography

Given the debate surrounding the proposed ban of "mixed-blood" marriages among Dominica's Caribs, and the unexplained assertion that 1,000 "full blood Caribs" remain there, added to assertions made in the Taino Revival book that contemporary Tainos are really black people trying to deny their blackness by choosing a Taino identity, there seems to be a whole bundle of very contentious ideas, and… Continue

A number of ICN members have asked for regular chat sessions to be scheduled. Given the size of the network, which is not in the thousands, it is probably a good idea, since that way you can be more or less assured to find someone in the chat room. I have created a special chat room for this site, which is not open and publicly archived like the last one, but is just as easy to use, and with a greater range of features, including private chatting. To sign up or login, please… Continue
