"Hello Jeffery, thank you for the warm greeting. I plan to make so many more variations of Atabey and even paint some cemis. I can only really do this during my free time, and Atabey really inspired me.  Hahom! "

Hello Jeffery, thank you for the warm greeting. I plan to make so many more variations of Atabey and even paint some cemis. I can only really do this during my free time, and Atabey really inspired me.

Many thanks for requesting my friendship on Indigenous Caribbean Network. I hope that we can share our views on our Taino culture of Boriken (Puerto Rico). Your friends, Don Pedro

Hello Jeffrey! Thank you for your kind words! Thank you for reading the posts!-it seems there are only a few of us that have a real desire to learn and to share,huh? You are very lucky to be so close to Beike,I really wish I could be,it almost happened 4 years ago,but the little house next to his that I was going to rent was damaged by some water pipes,and that opportunity was lost. I do live in a beautiful area,Beacon ,NY,and before that 15 minutes from Woodstock,NY. Anyway,hopefully I will be going to Pittsburg at some not to distant future if I pass my Beike requirements!    Taino ti brother,and I look forward to meeting you-and ,you are always welcomed here in Beacon. Blessings !

Nonetheless, if you run into any troubles using the site, please let me know, and I will do whatever I can to help. In the meantime, a very warm welcome!

Living in Hahom

Ta'kahi Guatiao!

It is a small thing, but today I put a pouch of tobacco in my pocket. I was not planning to do ceremony, but I simply wanted to have access to the sacred way of giving thanks, as the opportunity arose - offering tobacco to all the dear Cemis and Hupia that bless our lives.

It…
