I am looking forward to getting to know you mi Hermano and to learn about our heritage so I can pass it on to my children who are already proud of their Cuban heritage and very excited to learn about their Taino heritage. Thank you for the warm welcome. I committed this summer to do the Sundance again and am looking forward to it again and am looking forward to learning all the customs, ceremonies, songs, and history of our people. Thank you again, Reinaldo "Standing Eagle" my Chippewa Spirit name Lazo and one Day I hope to receive my Taino name (what an emotional day that would be if I was ever seen to be worthy to have one)

Friend, that project is somewhere in an old computer, but I will look around for it. However, I would be happy to email you a copy of a paper discussing assimilation and acculturation.
Also, I have been chosen as Vice-President of the newly formed Global Indigenous Group at Florida International University. We are planning to have a big celebration on September 7. We are looking for performers, storytellers, vendors, crafts, etc. If you know of anyone, send them my way. I will announce it to the community when we have a few more details figured out!
My brother! I was just sending you a message.. I actually did a semester-long research project on the lack of awareness and education among Cubans regarding their indigenous past. This is what I hope to continue researching as a graduate student. I am happy to have found this community.
