I heard rumors, Mr. Forte, that this very large Taino warrior lurking in swimming pools can swallow a mananti whole. Protect your local neighborhood manatis!

...um...I don't know how to say this, and I don't mean to alarm you...

But there appears to be a very large Taino warrior lurking in your swimming pool.

You can't be worse with names than my husband, TRUST ME. lol He grew up around Fordham Rd., what area are you from?
As for the restaurant, no, we sold it last Nov. but he is dying to re-open soon and there's a long line of customers that will be ready to bust the door open! But we'll see...it's a lot of work and takes up most of your time, although I have to admit it was a lot of fun.

Compai, happy new year to you and your family.

I put up a picture that was taken by a cousin on a airplane., right above our beatufull kiskeya. When you get a chance check it out. It actually came out pretty clear.

Anyways un abrazo da waitiao.

Hey compai, I hope you and yours are having a good holidya.

Something intersting. I just finish seeing a pbs program. The host went to indonesia. She visited some of the areas. One area was actually called sarawak. For a second there I thought it was in south america. They even had tabaco and use words that sounded arawak. They lived like indians and used many ameridians tool/weapon. Funny one of them even looked like an uncle of mine. Mind boggling how connected we are to the asians.

I did find it wierred that the words were very arawak or sounding like arawak. I am not to knowlegable so maybe I heard them wrong. But some did sound like dominican campesino words

Hey compai, After I left the mussuem. I realized that I might have been a bit rude. You were so gracious with your time that I didnt want to intrude more than I did. But when i mean rude. I should had said hello to your son first and then excused myself to the restroom.


I tried to get incontact with my friend but his cell didnt get the singal. I am sure he will be happy to get a copy of the dictionrays that is if you dont mind.

The one thing that I keep forgetting to asked you was about taino necklace. I wanted to see if I can maybe make one or buy one. Wanted your recomendatoins. I want something I can ware in public. I think part of the resurgence is letting other know who we are.

I also been wanting to asked what part of kiskeya is your wife from?

Anyways my brother thanx so much for you time. Please know that I appricated it.

Compai, I know looks are not a good indicator of how much ameridan blood we got. Chuck Noris is a good example of that. But jesus in that picture you look extreamly Native american.

I disagree the old picture looked good. Not to say the new one doesnt look good.

Tomorrow dude.

New picture, Wepa I didnt know we had taino models.

I will see you tomorrow.

Compai, thats great. If you dont mind I think I will be in the city tomorrow doing some consulting work in the morning. I will probably be able to stop in the afternoon. I got your work number, if you want I can call you first to confirm? Regardeless if I got work or not I will go into the city to make a copy.

Bo matum my waitio. (Im learning)

Compai,

I found a book (Languages of the Pre-Columbian Antilles) below is the link to it.

http://www.amazon.com/Languages-Pre-Columbian-Antilles-Julian-Granberry/dp/081735123X/ref=pd_sim_b_4


(diccionario taino llusstrado (serie puerto rico phrhistorico) (spanish edition) Below is the link. This one is out of print

http://www.amazon.com/Diccionario-Ilustrado-Puerto-Prehistorico-Spanish/dp/0963343599/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1229899777&sr=1-24


I am really surprised that I only found these two. One is out of print and the other may or may not only be a taino dictionary.

Compai, Ive been looking on line for a taino dictionary. I have this one saved to my fav http://www.taino-tribe.org/tedict.html. Belive it or not over 7 yo I printed all the pages on that site and had binded ( used to work in a mail room we had a binding machine) Anyways they havent updated that one.

I did see a taino dictionary from puerto rico had a yellow cover and ateby on it. But it seems to be out of print. Do you know of any that I can purchase.

I have the lokono- (english to arawak) one. But even damon corries told me that our ancestors droped many arawak words for other tribes especially the mayans as alot of trading was happening between them.

My friend from janico is very intersted in one of those dictionary too.
