Taino Resources

"Inside every mestizo there is either one dead Indian or an Indian waiting to re-emerge" -- Jose Barreiro, Taino

Puerto Rico has a rich culture whose origins can be traced back to native Taino, Spanish and West African roots. While we know much about our Spanish and African roots, our Puerto Rican community at large knows little about our Taino Heritage. We hope you enjoy this list of Taino resources. If you know of other interesting links to add let us know! We are adding websites as we find them!
