Dear Joanna Aya, I saw your postings in the Language Group. I am soooo inspired by the work to build a dictionary/lexicography/grammar. How can I participate? What is the progress? 

I started a revitalization group on Facebook, because I noticed that there is a lot of interest but there was no central space there (there is a page, but this is a group).

I am very interested in helping with this effort, supporting it and would like to know more if possible.

Thank you (jan jan catu)

I consider myself truly blessed to know the people I know and to have the people who truly know me!!! Anyone could come up with an opinion about the "Thanksgiving" Holiday now upon us because of our Indigenous roots, but I will say the following in this season regardless of what this Holiday historically means to so many Native people: I will cast aside all historical offense and all present day offense to say that I am truly blessed by the Creator of this Universe tohave experieced all I have in this life and grateful for EVERY PERSON I've encountered in my life that has shown me either a positive or negative experience in my life, because I've learned so much from them. I am also thankful for ALL the people that I've encountered in my life who have spoken either positively, or gossiped negatively about me behind my back, because they've shown m e who is truly on my side, and who's against me!!! I'm even thankful for those who have spoken against me beind my back, because they've shown me that I am at east 2 steps ahead of them and on the right track!!! On this holiday of "THANKSGIVING" I'm thankful for all that has happened to me because it has shown me what path to take and will show me the path I will take. I can truly say even in the face of adversity; "I AM TRULY BLESSED"

Hi Joanna;

I always heard from a couple of my family member in Puerto Rico that there is a sacred mountain where ancestrial tribes still practice the arts, music, enact the ceremonial foot ball games, and even have a chosen Caqui? I visit a bit but not to the mountains. Can you tell me a bit about the culture etc. I really would like to promote the culture. The ancestors need to be respected and honored. Here in St. Thomas, Vigin Islands, the indian burial ground where the Tutu Park Mall is build over was desicrated. Should there not be some kind of blessing ceremony? I would like to hear your thoughts and current customs.

Hey sister. This is the first time I see your picture on the side on this page. I have always been curirous. How can people claim that we are extinct when we have people like you and other in this site. Who obviously have very strong ameridian features. Mind boggling
