Bohio Attended the Taino Awards held last night by Yukayeke Yamocuno at Bronx Museum of the Arts.
It was spiritually inspiring and heartwarming to see the smiling beautiful faces of so many of our people.
Warixi and Yukayeke Yamocuno are to be commended for doing such a great job in putting this one of kind event together. I especially love the fact that this is and has always been a TAINO event that brings our people together in a good way> Excluding the political and social drama that at times tend to divides us.
This event reminds us ALL that we are all more alike than different, that we are all Tainos and in our veins runs the blood of our ancestors.
