Takaji Hermano

It is an honor to welcome you to our network. The work that you have been involved in is very impresive according to your profile. I personally am very interested in the work that you have done on the Mesoamerican influences on the culture of our Taino ancestors. I also am very interested in the material on the Cosmic Tree. I invite you yo blog here if you will in English or Spanish (muchos aqui somos biligue).  I also would like your opinion on a number of topics  that I have unofficially commented about in blogs and discussions concerning the nacient traditions of the Tainos. In particular I would like you to check out three opinions that I have posted here:

1.) The first is my opinion on the identity of the Taino Cemi known as GUAKAR  Please click this LINK for that info.

2.) The second is a comparative overview of the symbolism of ceremonial hatchets in both Maya and Taino culture. Please click on this LINK for that info

I will share a few others with you later.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter

Taino Ti

Miguel
