Thank you for the nice compliments! I love that song too. It's better then another classic Maria song: "How do you solve a problem like Maria" :)
Painting feathers, there is a processyou have to go through. First I steam them to make sure there are no holes or splits.. This is optional but is a way to try and repair splits. Then I spray the feathers with an acrylic spray sealant. Next I use gesso to create a canvas then I paint with acrylic "heavy body" The more detailed the subject the longer it takes, as you paint in layers. OK there you have it. I will be finishing up some humming birds and I am starting an owl soon.. Thanks Nanu,

By the way I knew there were more censoring. I was just stating that this one. I wanted to give an actuall name of the conquistador that king fernand ordered.

Hey nanu, thanx for you comment. Intersting in your theory of my last name. I will look into it. I never thought of it like that. But like you said they might have givin themeslevs last names but that doest mean they mixed. We can not assume that every body is an amixture of everything that mirgrated to cibao or the other island. I dont know evry bodly family tree to assume that. So it does make me a bit mad when i see people assuming these things.

But in regards to lynn she is right. I mean even dna strand in cibao region confirms that we were unmixed untill recently. Whats not to say they are still full blooded in those regions. I know we both disagree with this one. But no one change my mind about this untill I have proof. So far dna is proving me right. I know enriquillo took over 4,000 taino people into the mountains but I agree with lyn. I am sure there people in hiding. Some who helped enriquillo and some who were not even slaves.

So far I have been able to trace my family back on both side 9 genraations. my parents come from the same village. No euro deccendant. Its easy for me cause many of my reletive lived to be over 100yo. My great grand father was 108 when he passed and his great grand father died at over 100 yo to and before thm. The more I research my history the more indian comes out. Like I posted before. Spanish names and middle names were not used. So far I have been able to to see where the last name were introduced. That will be hard to find. Cause I dont live in DR and they probably dont keep good records.

"What the Bleep do we know?"" Is this in anctuall movie?

Sure nanu. I was not stating that you jumped in. I was just excusing myself. Cause even though I am still a gentlman.

There were more than one census taken in the 16th century. There were census for encomiendas and repartimientos; others were brought about by law suits and complaints, governmental re-checking and so on.

You don't need to know the name of something to be able to count it. Have you ever counted stars? I have and I only know maybe one or two constellations at best, doesn't mean I cannot count them.

The names were changed to exaggerate the loss of natives and thus the plantation workforce. This in turn justified the ever growing demand for black african slaves. The crown had to approve of this endowment, so there must be just cause for the expense. To justify their need, the natives and those who were mixed were classified according to behavior. Indian women who married spanish men, took on spanish names and behaviors were classified as spanish, mestizos who were raised spanish, had been recognized by their fathers (spanish names)owned property and their own slaves were considered spanish... This can go on... do you see my point? With every indian classified as spanish opened the door to request an african slave.

Consider that a census in 1530 had 200+ "indians" and 700 "others" while a census in 1545 had 5,125+ "indians" and no "others

Many natives ran away to the mountains. I believe these folk are the same you base your opinion with regards to the possibilities of pure blooded tainos today. Lynn Guitar said it beautifully : "How do you count people who are hiding from you?" If they were never counted, they should never have received a spanish name. The undeniable eventuality is that our people mixed, including to the point of castillianizing their names, changing their names to spanish to fit in.

Consider you own name- Altamonte- high mountain.

With regards to Wattles- he lived in the late 1800's, so it is almost assured you will find much christianization and old fashioned ideas in his writing. Bear that in mind as you read him, he was a man of his time.

You could probably borrow "What the Bleep do we know?" from Netflix, Blockbuster or even your local library!

And regarding the immature discussion :
"I know the discussion is very imature. But I think that if people want to learn about present day taino they need to come with respect. If i wanted to learn about ireland and would go to a ireland site I would ask respecitvly. So because of that I didnt see you had posted your comment on my page."

I have reserved my comments on these and withheld posting anything, anywhere, regarding them, so I am not sure what post you are referring to with regards to this....

Have a great day Juan and hope to hear from you soon.

Hey nanu, I was able to find some of my notes.

Cardinal Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros,in around the 1500s,told Spanish sailors to take census of all the people in there colonies,and the only way to keep count of people was by giving out spanish surnames to the indians and black slaves. so just cause you have a spanish last name does not mean your spanish descent the british did the same to black slaves
