Cultural Dissonance?

Note: The following post is a long one. I hope you feel like reading! ~N



I am a modern Caribbean Indian woman; a mixture of Taino, European and African descent. However, it is my Taino Indian heritage that I choose to follow, learn and endorse. The existence of my Taino ancestry has been covered up, denied for many years because of greed and genocide. This cover up is pernicious and has infected not only the familial roots of my Nation but has disowned our indigenous heritage… Continue

Before Columbus, just another tribe

Motecuzoma, also known as Montezuma told Cortez through an interpreter (paraphrased)



"You are not the first person to come here, looking like you do with beards and blue eyes, there are whole tribes like you down by the coast and I will introduce them to you." (Readings from America, out of print) Legend among the Aztecs was that their ancestors had lived in seven caves, when white men with beards, blonde hair and iron tools had organized their small tribe into the most dominant… Continue

OH YES HE DID ON A WARM AND SUNNY DAY,

THE DEVIL WORE RED AND WHITE AND A SMIDGEN OF GREY.



HE FLEW ACROSS THE OCEAN, SEARCHING FOR HIS PRIZE,

INSTEAD HE SAW A COUPLE OF ISLANDS WE CALLED PARADISE.

NO! NO! NO! THIS WAS A CALCULATED DESIGNED EVENT, ALL OF HIS OWN MAKING.

New Evidence Concerning Columbus' Exploitation of Tainos



Tau My Relatives

Most of us who are interested in the history of our ancestors are

aware of the fact that the arrival of Columbus at the shores of the

Caribbean unleashed the tragic process by which the ancient Taino

culture was almost completely destroyed. We know what Columbus'

intentions were for the people that he found here on the islands

because of what he himself wrote in his journal. The eminent… Continue

Sonia Migdalia Rosa

On Thursday, November, 13, 2008 a great woman, mother, housewife and above all an incredible human being crossed over. To say she will be missed by her family and friends is an understatement. I write these few words to express the pain I feel and to shed light not so much on how she died, but on how she lived, her strength, her struggle and her love.





I met Sonia Migdalia Rosa 8 years ago when I received an email from a total stranger. Asking me countless questions, I was… Continue

Grand Gathering of the Indigenous Nations Alliance





Tau My Relatives

I was invited by a Taino brother, Maximus, to attend a gathering of

Indigenous people in New York City this past weekend of November 13,

14,and 15. From what I understand, these kinds of gatherings are, in

part, intended to promote a sense of unity and co-operation within the

context of sacred space among peoples of the earth who are sensing a

need to reconnect with our ancestral Indigenous… Continue

The Day of the Ancestors



Image of the Sague family Day of the Ancestor's Altar



Tau My Relatives as I prepare to gather with my family this evening for our annual ceremony to honor those who have traveled to the Realm of Koa Bay (the abode of the departed souls) I realize that this year our ceremony will be particularly emotional for me. Our family here in Pittsburgh follows the Caney Spiritual Circle tradition of ceremonially observing the time of the year… Continue

John Ayes Indigenous Roots

The family tree I am going to share with you today contains the ancestral heritage that goes back to the year 1990 AD to Cuba.

The people that lived during that time were the Guanahuatabey.

The Guanahuatabey were a distinct people and spoke a different language from the classic Taino.

They and the other tribes that lived in the Carribean are considered, "neo Taino."

I think that terminology is a gross error, because it is another way of insulting us all.

Neo according… Continue

The following is my family tree. I have been working upon it since 1956 to present.

The "Discovery" of America?

This month people in various countries will be celebrating what is commonly called “Columbus Day” or “Dia de la Raza”; a day marked to celebrate the arrival of Columbus and his cronies crew onto the shores of “virgin” lands.



Many view this as an incredible event, worthy of celebration and joy. At a time when the planet was believed to be flat and only dangers and monsters awaited at the edge of the world, that a man had the audacity to take off into the vast unknown is nothing short… Continue

Columbus, A Historical Lesson

Dualities



That has always been the human downfall.



You came to us in your shining armor



And you were lost looking for the promised land.



We knew who you were



And all you would bring, there was a prophesy.



And despite knowing that



We extended our hands in friendship.





You raped us



You stole all that we had and knew



And you cut off our extended hands



Of good will and… Continue
