Hi Melinda, although I am tempted to call you Maxx--the question of American Indian slaves exported to the Caribbean is one that I have been interested in a for a long time, but lack the resources to do a really serious study which would take years. Otherwise, there is plenty scattered about in various archives in the US, esp. in connection with King Phillips War. Also, on the CAC there is a paper on American Indians exported to Barbados. There are Seminole descendants in the Bahamas and a book was recently published on that--I think this was also advertised on The CAC Review and I have a very much overdue review to write about it. So there is some published information. Also, there is a Louisiana online archive that documents indigenous Caribbean slaves imported into the US, the opposite direction, and again that is mentioned early on in The CAC Review.

Melinda, I was wondering if you could help me with one question, and it's your profile above that reminded me. The last US Census showed something like 12,000 people in Puerto Rico checking the "American Indian" (or is "Native American"?) box on their census returns. I was wondering if this meant that 12,000 people migrated to Puerto Rico from the mainland, and are American Indians, or whether it means that Puerto Ricans are identifying as American Indian in the absence of a "Taino" category. Can there really be that many American Indian persons who moved to Puerto Rico?

Definitely! I just started editing an interview my son did with the Puerto Rican poet Tony Medina. When I'm done I'll send it to you! I look forward to talking poetry with you!
All the best,
