Some people liked to believe that the indigenous people of Puerto Rico were eliminated by Spaniards hundreds of years ago but they were always there on their own land. They survived, maybe in small numbers, and multiplied with other races as well.
Today, 61% of Puerto Rican population carries Taino blood in their DNA. Tainos and their interracial brethren have chosen to move on with the modernization in the country.
Cuando mis ojos Indios miran los Indios Nativos de Puerto Rico, me pregunto cuanto nuestros ancestros tenia in comun.... (When my Indian eyes see the native Indians of Puerto Rico, I wonder if our ancestors had something in common...)
Puerto Rico, thank you for sharing your warmth with me Thank you for letting me rest in the shadow of your flamboyant tree while I was walking in the desert, thirsty and weary Thank you for what is obvious and for what the eyes cannot see...
