I am Huana. I posted a topic on the discussion panel on this site, for opening a discussion and dialogue regarding, Indoantillean language survival among borikuas. I am sharing this information. And I will like people to participate in the dialogue regarding the topic. As you live in the island and you are interested in the native roots, I reach to you. In Boricuas island we have the language. It is talk mixed within the spanish that we as borikuas talk. For a revitalization this information that we have in here must be taken in consideration. We have enough data to revitalize the language with a Grammar. We are going to do it in Boriken. I you want to get the information. I suggest the participation and dialogue on this topic. I invite you to check on the videos posted in the youtube page: Borikua Ancestral. We are looking for people interested in joining this cause in the island. We may need someone to promote the books we have written at Chicago.
This is Miguel, one of the moderators of this network. It is a real pleasure to welcome you to our online community. I am acquainted with Chicago's Humbolt Park Boricua community since I actually was there to celebrate a Taino ceremony with a local family way back in 2015. I invite you to explore all of the information that is available here in our network. Since you are interested in a wedding ceremony, I would like to invite you to consider our CANEY INDIGENOUS SPIRITUAL CIRCLE. It functions as a bonafide church under United States laws. That means that our behikes (ministers) are legally authorized to celebrate weddings WEDDING LINK 1WEDDING LINK 2WEDDING LINK 3 . I would be happy to return to Chicago for such an event. I also want to alert you to the fact that there is a group of Tainos living in the Chicago area who are organizing a local Taino community there and would love to hear from other Chicago residents that are interested in living their Taino tradition. The contact person that I am in touch with there is called Rafael Feliciano. Please click on this LINK to access his facebook page. I hope to hear from you soon SENEKO KAKONA (abundant blessings) Miguel
