Taíno: National Museum of the American Indian in NYC

Museum staff stated I  could take pictures when I went to this exhibit. I felt a feeling of awe and reverence as I entered. Sadness too… because I knew the story was not going to be a happy one. The indigenous people were killed and their legacy should not be forgotten.

Although the Indigenous history is still being uncovered but there are so many out there who are seeking to share this with the world. Let’s do more to learn about those who suffered so much, lost everything, but remain here in our DNA.
