Thanks for the pics once again brother. That was my sons first time dancing in full lakota regalia.
As for the Maubi, if it is the same as Mabi, then yes I know the ingredients. We should have a Mabi workshop perhaps at the American Indian Community House or the Cultural Center.
I do not know what Maubi is made from but I was introduced to it in Georgetown, Guyana. It was very popular in the earlier days. It goes nice with "tennis-roll" (round bread) and cheese.
It can be bought at any West Indian grocery store in US.
Hope you and your loved ones are in good health and spirit. Just wanted to say thanks for joining my circle and for adding me as a friend. Your site is looking good! Keep up the good work!
Until next time...
Love, Hugs, Peace & Taíno-tí,
Joanna & Family
Hello tainoray, I think I remember the "veracity" aspect you mentioned. It was a bit of a risky term for me to use, thinking about it in hindsight, because though it was meant as an acronym the fact is that it sounds like "truth" and it suggests that "untruth" might be lurking nearby. In other words, if I were to rewrite the paper, I would leave that out, and just focus on how Taino representatives have been especially skilled at maximizing their self-representation online, possibly more than most indigenous communities.
But, I would like to hear what you wanted to say about that "veracity" idea, and please be really blunt if you didn't like it, because academics shouldn't teach if they can't learn.
How sad that I did not welcome you, please accept my apologies, I have been absent for a few weeks. Please let me know if you encounter any difficulties in using the site -- it looks like you are doing a great job though!
What great pictures!..I need a source for Cemis and Taino music!!!I have one from the old Ciboney tribe,and my Behiques Cd that I have to memorize,as if all goes well,I will be a Behique of Caney Spirtual Circle...but I am a musician,I likes LOTS of music,especially Taino.I thank you for help in obtaining music and sources for Cemis,and actually any and all Taino things!!Bo-Matum,
Thanks for watching my video. The "bag of weed" comment comes from the fact that the poem is a mix of advice from various women, from all different backgrounds who all had some advice of how one can survive here in Copenhagen. It is not an endorsement, but something to think about in terms of how different people use different things to cope. Some people drink, others smoke weed, others read history and gain strength from that. The poem is a contemplation of all the above.
