In September 2009 PRFDance Director Tekina-eirú Maynard experienced a traditional Ceremonia de Casabe with El Concilio Taino Guatu-Ma-Cu A Boriken, a sacred celebration of the yuca harvest as was done in the days of our Ancestors. Tekina-eirú is mentored in native traditions by Cacike Caciba Opil. She is a Tekina in the Suania -- a Teacher of Taino traditions in the Americas, and a leader of ceremonial dance.
