Caney Circle makes presentation at the Fourth Annual Taino Gathering in Jayuya

Tau My Relatives

On the weekend of August 15 I participated in the fourth annual Taino Indigenous gathering in Jayuya, Boriken. The traditional artisans and craftspeople of the central mountains again hosted hundreds of visitors from all over the world on the grounds of the Cemi Museum in the Barrio Coabey area this year, and the experience was predictably inspiring. I was invited by our Taino sisters Joana Soto Aviles and Maragarita Noguera, to… Continue

Columbus's first encounters of Indigenous people.

"A fair breeze took, Santa Maria and Nina into Moustique Bay,

where easterly winds detained them for three days. Here the

Admiral, "seeing the grandeur and beauty of this island and

its resemblance to the land of Spain," he named it Las Isla Espanola

- the Spanish Isle. His seamen captured a young and beautiful

girl wearing only a gold nose plug and brought her on board.

She indicated that she would gladly stay with the boys, but the

Admiral, sent her ashore… Continue

Research items from Ray of Cape Canaveral.

To me, there's nothing like being a writer on the hot trail of research into prehistory. Finding the scant hints of a bygone culture of people excites this soul. This writer is far removed in the gene pool from this culture

yet he feels a connectedness with them from the past. This author's attempt through knowledge to connect to the ancient ones is to honor them by remembrance of them in his humble writings.

Personal interests for research include but not limited to… Continue

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.
