Taíno Flag Presented to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian

Washington D.C. (UCTP Taino News) – On Friday, July 13 2012, the flag of the United Confederation of Taíno People was formally presented to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.

The flag will now become part of the Museum’s permanent collection and is scheduled to be displayed annually along with the flags of other Indigenous Peoples of the Western Hemisphere during the observance of Native American Heritage month.

The Taíno flag was presented to José Barreiro, the Museum’s Assistant Director for Research by Confederation President Roberto Mukaro Borrero. The historic flag presentation opened a public symposium entitled “Beyond Extinction: Updates from the Field”, a program that culminated a week long workshop session focusing on indigenous Taíno related themes.
