Here's a bit of a video by Penny Slinger that she made to honor the Arawak:

Just to let you know...the Lucayans were Arawak, and the Arawaks are now proven to have survived through intermarriage with the rest of the population:

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/people-places/what-became-of-the-tain...

Of course, that doesn't change the way their ancestors were oppressed and killed and mistreated....but like most indigenous people, they were more resilient (and smarter!) than given credit for! Puerto Ricans have been proven to have LOTS of DNA from the Arawak/Taino and the Garifuna culture (a mix of Carib, Arawak, and West African people) has a language that is Arawak-based, and exists mostly along the Caribbean Coast of Honduras, but there are also smaller populations in Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. There are also many Garifuna in the United States, particularly in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, Houston, Seattle, and other major cities.

Also, the Carib tribe may have been cannibalistic, but there is really no evidence to prove it. Many people dispute that cannibalism existed in the Caribbean.

(I just know these things from research for the book I am writing...) ;-)

I love the Arawak/Taino.

So sad..." The Lucayans were genourous by nature and shared everything with Columbus. In return, the Spanish enslaved the Lucayans to work in their mines and plantations in Cuba. No descendants of the Lucayans remain today having been obliterated by slavery and desease."....

isn't that just typical.....plus, the islands are named after the cannibals, not the Lucayans..geeze..

but yes *smiles*....in the eternal NOW. Maybe that's why i can just smell the salt sea....mmmmm.

LOVE you !!!!!!!!! xoxox addy

...or your last, if you believe, as I do, that everything is really happening in the eternal NOW. ;-)
