4ta Jornada Indígena-Taína 2008 en Bo. Coabey, Jayuya, Puerto Rico

(English Language version below)

El sábado y domingo, 16 y 17 de Agosto 2008, se llevará a cabo la 4ta Jornada Indígena-Taína 2008 en Jayuya en las facilidades de CEDETRA en el Bo. Coabey, Carr. 144 - Km. 9.3, Jayuya, Puerto Rico. Este evento anual celebrado en Honor al Indio Puertorriqueño es auspiciado por El Municipio Autónomo de Jayuya (Oficina de Turismo) y CATTA-COOP, INC. (Cooperativa de Artesanos Trabajadores de la Tierra Alta). Este año la Jornada se titula “¡AREYTO!” y esta dedicada a los Niños y Jóvenes de Boriké.

El Municipio Autónomo de Jayuya, la Cooperativa de Artesanos (CATTA-COOP, INC.) y la Comunidad de Descendientes Indígenas Tainos de Boriké rescató del olvido la proclama del “Día del Indio Puertorriqueño” la cual fue aprobada en Ley el 12 de agosto del año 1970 por el Gobernador Interino del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, el Hon. Fernando Chardón. Este año la fecha del 12 de agosto del 2008 es trascendental porque representa los 500 años desde la llegada del Reinado Español a Boriké y el cumplimiento de la Profecía del Renacimiento del Pueblo Taíno.

Invitamos al pueblo a celebrar con nosotros. Las actividades programadas serán libre de costo al público e incluirán Ceremonia, Música, Danza, Toque de Tambor, Actividades para Niños y Jóvenes, Feria Artesanal, Exposición de Fotos y Presentaciones Visuales, Talleres de Artesanía Tradicional, Conferencias, y Campaña para Proteger y Cuidar Nuestra Madre Tierra.

Habrá comidas y refrescos nativos y criollos y no se permitirá la venta o consumo de bebidas alcohólicas en los predios y alrededores durante la celebración de esta actividad familiar.

PRESS RELEASE
July 26, 2008

4th Taíno Indigenous Gathering 2008 in Bo. Coabey, Jayuya, Puerto Rico

On Saturday and Sunday, August 16-17, 2008, the 4th Taíno Indigenous Gathering 2008 will be held on the grounds of CEDETRA in Bo. Coabey, Carr. 144 – Km. 9.3. This annual event celebrated in Honor of the Puerto Rican Indian is sponsored by the Autonomous Municipality of Jayuya (Office of Tourism) and CATTA-COOP, Inc. (Cooperative of Artisan Workers of the High Land). This year, the Gathering is entitled “¡AREYTO!” and is dedicated to the Children and Youth of Boriké.

The Autonomous Municipality of Jayuya, the Cooperative of Artisans (CATTA-COOP, INC.) and the Community of Taíno Indigenous Descendents of Boriké have rescued from obscurity the proclamation of the “Day of the Puerto Rican Indian” which was approved into law the 12th of August of 1970 by the Interim Governor of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Hon. Fernando Chardón. This year the date August 12, 2008, is transcendental because it represents 500 years since the arrival of the Spanish Reign to Boriké and the fulfillment of the Prophecy of the Rebirth of the Taíno People.

We invite the public to celebrate with us. The activities programmed are free of cost to the public and include Ceremony, Music, Dance, Drumming, Activities for Children and Youth, Artisan Fair, Photo Expo and Visual Presentations, Traditional Artisan Workshops, Conferences, and a Campaign to Protect and Care for Our Mother Earth.

There will be Native and Creole food and refreshments and the sale and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages will not be permitted on the grounds or surroundings during the celebration of this family activity. Space for camping is available (please call to confirm and reserve). Donations are accepted and appreciated, and volunteers are welcome.

re: http://tainospirituality.magnify.net/item/FLHQFVM38HZGWLLH
that video is awesome
how the camera person gets drawn in to what they are filming
and it is as if the viewer becomes a part of the celebration,
rather than vicarious exposure we recieve the direct experience
thank you so much for that~c
