Muchos taínos actuales todavía llaman a estas imágenes "guaili" usando la palabra taína para "niño". Sin embargo, el antropólogo…Continue

[I ask for Permission and the information on the cover from YouTube AMRFanClub.] This cover looks simple, but it carries a dark message. It is the Tree of Life and is dying. Spots in the full album indicate a new virus will rise in the population. The color spots are both disease and blood splatters indications of violence coming ahead. There is a ball in the bird's nest that has the Latin word "Daemon Mendacili" which means "Deamon of…Continue

It's a storytelling song. "Possession to Steal", I don't get the meaning of the cover. Is it to steal a baby bird or steal a bird's eggs? I don't get it. What is the meaning?

En este blog quiero compartir con ustedes la investigación que he llevado a cabo sobre la antigua tradición de la danza que parece ser un elemento fundamental de la cultura arahuaca. Es una tradición que se hace evidente en un gran número de grupos arahuacos que habitan áreas de América del Sur continental, como Guyana y Surinam, así como en la reserva Kalinago en la isla caribeña de Dominica y entre los residentes mestizos de regiones rurales remotas…Continue

I am Priscilla Quiñones Ferreira, and I go by Silla (Sí-la). Like your average Puertorrican, I am mixed, but in that mix there’s taíno culture and heritage I’ve inherited. I grew up in a split home as well, so I grew up with two fathers. Both gave me different perspectives and experiences of our Taíno heritage. This post is specific to my blood relation to the Quiñones family (the father I share DNA with and was with part-time in my childhood). I am still…Continue

Takahi my relatives, as we approach the sacred point in the tropical year cycle when the rains ultimately intensify in the Caribbean. I would like to offer three presentations that explore various aspects of this weather phenomenon and its spiritual significance in Taino culture.
First I want to present the concepts surrounding Taino beliefs about rainy weather and dry weather. This duality plays a…Continue
