The Taíno Language


Here's an interesting paper, The Origin and Survival of the Taíno Language, by David Wahayona Campos Reyes and posted on The Caribbean Amerindian Centrelink, web-based an information source on the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean, from The Guyanas, to Central America, from The Antilles to North America.

It's short and sweet.

I especially love Jose Barreiro's statement at the end of the paper:
“Inside every mestizo there is either one dead Indian, or an Indian
waiting to re-emerge.”
