I personally believe that little things like that should be preserved. It is part of our Taino heritage and as such is one of those things that creates a special form of continuity with The Ancient Ones.
Does Cuba have an equivalent to Dominican/Haitian Mamajuana and Puerto Rican (Vieques in particular) Bili ?
As a side, I was wondering if you knew of anyone who knows how to make Taino style pipes and/or cigars. From what I have heard Cohiba (The Cuban brand of cigars.) is one of the best cigars out there. I personally don't smoke, but I LOVE the smell of tobacco (ever since I was little). So perhaps you know of a course or instructional where I could learn that particular craft ?
Taino Ty, to you and the family and hope all is fine and well on your side of the border or accross the medicine line.

Thank you for thinking of us and we hope to make this site very rewarding and interesting. Keep healthy and stronge my Brother-In-Law.
