Taino Gods


I’ve found a site that gives some information on Taino Gods. While the information is limited and there are no photographs of relics, it is a fairly respectable introduction to a topic not too widely covered.

Another web site, Taino Symbology shows a livelier page with copies of stone images of the gods, but the amount of info on legend or mythology is sparse.

I rarely think of the US Virgin Islands when reading about the Taino, but a quick search revealed their presence on St. John, one of my favorite islands, and home to a life-long friend.

  1. J. Montana from LinkedIn discussion. You are correct, I wouldn’t think of the the Virgin Island in referencing the Taino. My daughter is Latino and this is great info.
