Once again, sorry for my tardiness. Hope 2009 rocks in the best way for you and yours!!! Responding to your question, Bohio, is actually the entire Island of "Hispaniola". In both its' regions, Haiti, and Kiskeya, the worst massacres and attrocities against our people occurred there. As far as the 45% estimate, that is my personal belief in how many people may have the mtDNA. Again, that's my personal belief, because just as we thought the % in Boriken was only about 33%, it ended up being much higher. The origingal estimate of 19% in Kiskeya may be wrong as well, and it's my belief that it could be as high as 45%. I defiinitely hope to contact Jorge Baracutey and ask him for more detailed info. I'd rather have that and share that info with you rather that estimate in my mind. As I get more info, I'll be more than happy to share it with you. Tau Ti Da Tiao!!!

LOL My husband doesnt celebrate it either, I think they only celebrate it in Santo Domingo and not in Cibao, but I wanted to start doing it for Mateo this year. It celebrates the three kings that came to see Jesus when he was born. The three kings bring "gifts" to the children. Some people, lke I know in Puerto Rico, because my best friend is from San Juan, they put hay in boxes and put it under their beds and then the gifts go in there (lol the hay is for the camels, like the way some kids leave cookies for santa). Some traditions have the kids put their shoes outside their door and small gifts or candy are left in them. That is what I did for Mateo. Some candy but his shoes were too small for the Dora The Explorer dvd I got him (it's a new one all about Three Kings Day) so I had to put it behind his shoes :)
Anyway I think I need to have a root canal done :( I'm in so much pain since last night....not looking forward to it! Talk to you soon and take care!

Honestly, I'm done with that post. It is filled with ignorance and contradictions.
Anyway are you celebrating Three Kings Day with your daughter tomorrow? I am doing it for the first time with Mateo

I am certainly curious about other tribes and their problems also. I know all of us should stick together. That's what all of the Native tribes of the US had to do, to get anything done. I still think they haven't even began to make up for the theft and rape of our ancestrial lands here in Oregon. I still fight battles everyday, even today in 2009!
