My heritage and identity!! … ‘“Taíno: Native Identity and Heritage in the Caribbean” … TAINO!!!
We have posted about this exhibition several times before, but it is always good to have a reminder to visit it soon. “Taíno: Native Identity and Heritage in the Caribbean” opened on July 28, 2018, and is on view until October 2019 at the National Museum of the American Indian (located at 1 Bowling Green, New York, New York).

No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill…

The Tenors… Auld Lang Syne!!
Hi everyone. I know I still haven’t made a full return to blogging yet (I’m still working on some new health issues) but I wanted to make sure I wished you all a Happy New Year. Stay safe tonight and enjoy the festivities!
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~ T.S. Eliot ~
