The Taino Perspective on Columbus and America

Taino tells of the American encounter from an indigenous Taino perspective.

Sharply and lovingly written, and filled with philosophical insights and emotional musings from a life in a world turned upside down, Taino is an engrossing, illuminating, and heartbreaking look at the world of the conquered, a world that all but disappeared in the space of a single lifetime. “The wounds of these forty years,” the authors narrator sighs in his journal, “cut deep into my heart and so will mostly these pages.”
