Field studies

A travel report to Morovis village where Taino Indians still live. The Taíno were an indigenous people of the Caribbean to be encountered by Columbus during his voyage. In his diary, he wrote about these people: “They traded with us and gave us everything they had, with good will. they took great delight in pleasing us. They are very gentle and without knowledge of what is evil; nor do they murder or steal. Your highness may believe that in all the world there can be no better people.” It is difficult to disagree with these words. These are really wonderful people.

Also, during the trip, I got acquainted with the culture and traditions of Taíno community and also learned how these people are currently fighting for equality and for recognition as being part of the oldest living culture on the island of Borikén (Puerto Rico).
