Indigenous people of the South America nation of Suriname perform a dance that closely resembles the spiritual healing dance known as "Cordon" which is practiced by a spiritist sect in Cuba. The Cuban Cordon Dance has been recognized by researchers such as Jose Antonio Garcia Molina as a derivation of an ancient Arawakan Taino dance.
This LINK leads to a video that actually shows the actual practice of the Cuban Cordon Dance which exhibits hand and foot movements that distinctly resemble those of the Sureiname Arawak dance.
The two most prominent Indigenous nations of Suriname are the Arawak and Caribs
The book HUELLAS VIVAS DEL INDOCUBANO (Living Traces of the Cuban Indians) by Antonio Garcia Molina describes the Cuban Cordon Dance in detail. The hand and foot movements of the Cuban Cordon Dance very closely resembles the hand and foot movements exhibited in this Arawak dance.
