Tony Castanha

About the Book

"This book debunks one of the greatest myths ever told in Caribbean history: that the indigenous peoples who encountered a very lost Christopher Columbus are "extinct." Through the uncovering of recent ethnographical data, the author reveals extensive narratives of Jb̕aro Indian resistance and cultural continuity on the island of Borikň (Puerto Rico). Since the epistemological boundaries of the early history and literature had been written through colonial eyes, key fallacies have been passed down for centuries. Many stories have been kept within family histories having gone "underground" as the result of an abusive past. Whole communities of Jb̕aro people survive today"--Provided by publisher.
