Sponsored by the Puerto Rican Institute of Culture, a conference entitled “Where are the Tainos?” is scheduled to take place at the Caguana Ceremonial Center on April 21, 2006. That the sponsors have not invited the Taino Activists to take part in this conference being held at our sacred ceremonial grounds is yet another example of the trend of indigenous exclusion and the on-going disrespect of the Taino People. Do you agree?
o Yes, I agree that the Caguana protesters should have been invited to participate at the conference and Taino People should be able to speak for themselves on every issue that concerns them as well as be involved at every level of related decision making processes.
o No, I think the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture should make all the decisions regarding Taino culture.
