The full archival project will look like a:

 

  • Directory or information/contact bank made for the people so that, no matter where they are in the world, they can reach out to caciques (know who they are, where they are, and how to contact them) and connect them to where said person is. 

  • Social Media groups that serve to disseminate official information so that the next generations can be well-informed of their heritage, as well as cultural and spiritual traditions. 

  • Photo essays with oral stories, songs, etc. to preserve the knowledge of the elders while they are still here with us.

A sample of how the archival project's creation stories can be made into a digital format. 

I can work with my nonprofit to improve the audio quality and upgrade the graphics while maintaining the integrity of the original video.

With the use of programs like ArcGIS, I can create interactive maps and multimedia experiences that visitors can engage with.

An example of the embedding of a resource list already produced. Alternatively, a directory can be compiled, made, and stored on a protected page on the website.

With the use of a simple Wix site like this one for no cost. (Especially, since archival grants would be willing to support projects like these.

There are various museums like the Museo del Barrio (NYC) and the Taíno Museum (Haiti) that have photography archives that would be solicited in the reclamation process that many indigenous tribes within the Caribbean are vying for in addition to the reclamation of ancestral lands, burial grounds, and artifacts.

There are already plans for a Taíno Leadership Summit in 2022! This and other webinars can be live streamed from the website.
