So here’s the thing;


I’m a 66 year old Boricua who was born in “El Barrio” NYC. That’s 99th St. & 2nd Avenue for those who are not clear where “El Barrio” is.


At this late stage of my life, I’m really trying to connect with “like-minded” individuals who consider themselves “Expatriates.” I know the literal translation of expatriate is someone who was born in one country, but currently lives in another country. However, in researching the definition of “Expatriate,” I’ve found that it is really up to individual interpretation! So, that being said, I consider myself “Puertoriqueño” by virtue of the fact that my parents were both born in Puerto Rico, migrated to the US, and I was born in NYC. Not my fault, not my choice, but there’s are millions just like me, so it is what it is.


As a recent member of the Indigenous Caribbean Network, I’d like to connect and interact with other “Boricuas” in my geographic. I live in Southern NJ. I own a 1 1/2acre farm with a 100+ year old home. To provide some context; I grew up on the streets of El Barrio (1965-1975), was in the drug game (1975-1990), went to prison (1990-1994), saw the light, and worked in non-profit (1994-2006) trying to give back and reconcile my past with my present. I became semi-retired after working in Camden, NJ for 3 years.


So that’s the long and the short of my life. I want to connect with other Boricuas in my geographic.




We can take it from there if you’re feeling adventurous!!!

Right now it is crucial that you continue to digest the information that I am slowly posting in the Beike Lodge. Make sure you systematiaclly go through all of it one by one and try to internalize all of the information so that we can move on to the next step in your progress. Many Blessings

Greetings sister

If this book that you are mentioning is the one spoken of by our brother Frank Akuturey in his post in our Beike Lodge "COMMENTS" section, am afraid this book might be only in Spanish, and I am sorry.

Please see here the information that he posted with the name of the book:

I want to put this book out to you all,as I think it has some really big treasures in it-get this book any way you can!:

Huellas Vivas Del Indocubano" (Living Traces of the Cuban Indians) ,by Jose Antonio Garcia Molina,Mercedes Garrido Mazorra,and Daisy Farinas Gutierrez    (Ciencias sociales)

There are actually several dance steps and actual music to many songs,that are STILL sung and danced today for healing and honoring the dead. There are some nice pictures inside as well,of some VERY Indian Cubans as well!


Once I get the book, if it is not too vluminous I might be able to translate it for you.

It can be celebrated anytime after the loved one's death. It doesnt matter how long you wait.

Hello Kokuyo Beike-in-training,

The homeschooling is now over for the summer until next year. This year was a little rough but getting things better prepared for next year. Arizona sounds like a great place to visit! I have heard many good things about Arizona. I did not get to make it to Pittsburgh at all. Been so busy finding out I will be adding a new addition to my family..Am currently 10 weeks pregnant and go for my first ultrasound tomorrow. A little nervous because all my other pregnancies I had complications so I am praying this one will turn out better. As for the causes, I am an active member of the American Indian Movement. Anything I can do to help I will try my hardest to do. That goes for all the Native people :)

WIshing you the best on your trip to Arizona! Be safe, and many blessings to you my friend.

My sister

It was great to hear about your Full Moon Ceremony experience. As you probably already know we here in the Western Pennsylvania area combined our Full Moon Ceremony with the observance of the rare astronomical event that took place yesterday Tuesday June 5 the VENUS TRANSIT OF THE SUN.

I will soon be posting a full report of our Tuesday evening celebration in the form of a blog.

Takaji my sister Kokuyu

I have to confess to you that I really dont know anything about these "gifts" or games or other things like that that abound in the realm of online networking. I just exchange information and interact with people. Please forgive me for my ignorance.
