Children's Story-telling Popol Vuh

On June 29 2021 I volunteered at a summer camp program for children of immigrant workers from Central America to offer a Story-Telling presentation that featured the traditional creation narration of the ancient Maya, the Popol Vuh. The children really got into the fun of it, using the blowgun to "shoot down" Seven Macaw Wukub Kakix, playing the…

40th ANNIVERSARY CANEY CIRCLE

On June 6 1981 I gathered with a number of people living in the Pittsburgh area who were interested in Taino spirituality and we founded a non-profit spiritual organization now known as the CANEY INDIGENOUS SPIRITUAL CIRCLE. Over the next 40 years this spiritual community would flourish and blossom into an entity that now thrives in sites all over the…

Indigenous Peoples Day Philly

Indigenous people and allies in the city of Philadelphia recently scored a historic victory when they succeeded in having the city officially change the identity of the month of October from Columbus Day to INDIGENOUS PEOPLES' DAY. That victory has been maliciously challenged by a lawsuit that was brought against the Mayor of the city by recalcitrant reactionaries. The people of Philly can use all the help they can get from conscious folks everywhere.

Foreign Animals Were Brought Here On Canoes

Picture 6 of 50

The guinea pig is native to the South American mainland continent not the Caribbean

There has always been a certain amount of debate in the Taino Resurgence Movement on the subject of what kinds of animals our Taino ancestors were familiar with. The typical and logical assumption entertained by most modern-day Tainos is that if a certain species of animal was not native to a specific island then the Tainos living on that…

Caney Circle Crossing Over Ceremony

CROSSING OVER CEREMONY

The ancient Taino people perceived the transition of a human soul from the realm of the living to the realm of the dead as a journey to a symbolic land called CoayBay. This place was imaged as being the very womb of the Earth Mother AtaBey, the Cosmic Matriarch, from which all life had emerged and to which all life returned, and it was associated with a number of symbolic objects that represented that womb. Among these objects were specially designed clay…
