PRFDance Trip to...

El Concilio Taíno Guatu-Ma-Cu A Borikén
El Día Taíno 2009

Jardín Botánico y Cultural de Caguas
July 25, 2009

THE PLACE TO BE SUMMER 2009 was with PRFDance Director Tekina-eirú Maynard, in Puerto Rico with El Concilio Taino Guatu-Ma-Cu A Boriken. Enjoy these special memories of El Concilio's annual homecoming that calls all their people home. Whether they drive from across the island or travel by plane from the Mainland US, no one wants to miss "El Dia Taino" that includes a day of Ceremonial Areytos done in the full ceremonial dress, in the tradition of our Ancestors. Tekina-eirú is a proud blood descendant of the native Tainos who call the island Boriken. Tekina-eirú is mentored in Taino traditions by the (Chief) Cacike Caciba Opil Veguilla. She is a Tekina in the Suania -- a Teacher of Taino traditions in the Americas, and a leader of ceremonial dance.



Can't wait for next year!
