Taino Presente…!!!! Que Siga Luchando

6 08 2010

A truly inspiring moment and effort to decolonize the Island of Boriken.  Now known as Puerto Rico.  This effort was headed by the Taino people of the island to reclaim their rightful place on the island and the tradition of their ancestors.  As one of the first people to encounter the Europeans that arrived with Christopher Columbus they were the first to suffer at the hands of colonization.  They were also the first to resist that enslavement and holocaust.

Watch this inspiring video produced by Taino people in collaboration with the Peace and Dignity Journeys.  All in preparation for 2012 when the next intercontinental journey will take place that will for the first time also include the islands, perhaps even Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
