Got a great, cloudless seat to look at the Blood Moon! And while I don’t have the best camera lenses to take night photos, I still took one or two! I’ll invest in better ones for the next one!
I took out a small bongo I have and played a soft beat for a while and prayed under the Moon.
It felt beautiful and full of cleansing energy. I hope that everyone got to enjoy their Blood Moon! If not or if you fell asleep, there’s another in October so don’t feel sad!
I’m off to bed now. Goodnight everyone!
Took some pics of the Moon and going back out again in an hour to get the good stuff ahh yeah!
Everyday, after work, I try and work bit by bit on my videos and gathering what’s important to help my fellow Taíno. And it’s interesting, the things I’ve learned about myself, my work ethic, and my own patience, while I work on this project.
I fear a lot. I fear that people will want to use their ancestors as some flashy crown to show off to their friends. That they won’t want to learn, won’t want to work towards understanding and reaching out and becoming a community together to revive ourselves as people and remind the world that we are alive.
I fear that people won’t take it seriously. And they’ll disrespect the Taíno’s existence. But I also understand that it is not my job to make people take it seriously.
I will try and help. I will educate to the best of my abilities and the rest is up to everyone else. I can only do so much.
But I still go back and forth on whether what I’m doing is going to help us or harm us.
I guess I can only hope for the best and have faith in my fellow people and my abilities. I really, really hope people are honest with themselves. That they won’t educate themselves then suddenly create some ndn fantasy to create some character to impress the world and then spread false ideas about Taíno-ness.
I donno. I’ll pray and keep working.
Whenever I become stressed, I bathe and remember the prayers of my ancestors.
An importance of cleanliness is traditional and necessary when I want to remove the negative feelings off of me and want to feel refreshed.

White people, even ‘till this day, go around picking up “artifacts” with the mentality of “WE FOUND IT, IT’S OURS NOW!!!”
Like they weren’t buried and lost bc of them in the first place.
And then keep it away from Native people and their rightful homes.
"We should spam the Taíno tag with nonsense."
"What’re you talking about, it’s already filled with nonsense."
On the next episode of “The Taínos tag is a fucking mess”:
How many more irrelevant selfies can we get? Will people ever stop posting misinformed glyphs? How many more people will call themselves Taíno because they found out the Caribbean percentages and want a little bit of that Ndn title to their name? Will people ever stop posting bullshit about how peaceful we were and then went extinct?
Probably not!!!!! Find out tomorrow!!!
