Public Notice: UCTP REAFFIRMS TAINO SUPPORT FOR THE RESCISSION OF THE INTER CAETERA BULL...

Taino'ti Guaitiao (Greetings relatives):

On behalf of the Taíno People and Nation represented by the United Confederation of Taíno People (UCTP), we express our solidarity with the recent resolution concerning the “Papal Bull Inter Caetera of 1493 and 1496 Royal Charter of the Church of England” issued at the “Summit of Indigenous Nations” held in sacred the Black Hills Mountains of South Dakota (3 August 2006).

As the Taíno, Carib and Arawak Nations were the first Indigenous Nations to suffer the genocidal effects of the “Doctrine of Discovery” and as the UCTP has and continues to actively campaign for the rescission of the Inter Caetera Bull (Papal Bulls) of 1493, we wholeheartedly welcome this initiative being put forth by our indigenous relatives from throughout Abya Yala (North and South America).

In the Spirit of our Ancestors,
Roberto Múcaro Borrero,
President and Chairman,

Regional Coordination
