Taino Chiefs Our Heros are not your Heros

Let us remember them with LOVE  sing their names in HONOR and give them RESPECT,
By standing strong today as A PEOPLE.
Let us with the same  respect and courage they had live not with fear but walk with courage upon the Taino Red Road.Let our Spirits,Hearts and Mind  keep the fire of our people ALIVE
Let us RESCUE ,RELEARN and educate ourselves in  the ways of our people in a good and wise way.
Lastly a people divided cannot stand. As such embrace each other in the wisdom of understanding,sit in circles of dialoque because in the long run the fate of one is the Fate of all.
.Peace mi gente :)
