Yamaye Guani Areito Bianburi
The Yamaye Guani Taino People, a community established both locally and internationally, is dedicated to preserving and teaching the Indigenous ways of Jamaica's First Peoples. And they need your help to continue their important work.
On May 26, 2023, the Yamaye Guani Taino People will be holding their second in-person Taino celebration. This event is a rare opportunity to witness firsthand the vibrant Taino culture that has been passed down through generations. The celebration will be held at the Ancestral Gardens Woodside St. Mary, a historic site with three National Heritage sites, including two sacred Taino sites, the Taino Steps/Daddy Rock, and the Atabey Petroglyph.
The theme of this year's celebration is "Guanara - Indigenous Healing spaces and Climate Mitigation," a crucial topic in today's world. By supporting this event, you will not only be helping to preserve the rich cultural heritage of Jamaica's First Peoples but also contributing to the important work of climate mitigation.
Your donation will go towards ensuring a safe and secure space for supporters to gather and honor community members and relatives who have taken on the yeoman task of preserving, promoting, and teaching the ancestral Indigenous ways of the Taino people. Your support will also help provide opportunities for Jamaican Taino peoples to learn from ancestral craft, practices, and knowledge.
Donate today and help ensure that the Taino culture and traditions continue to thrive for generations to come.
