The Myth of Indigenous Caribbean Extinction : Continuity and Reclamation in Boriken (Puerto Rico) Hardback
by T. Castanha
This book debunks one of the greatest myths ever told in Caribbean history: that the indigenous peoples who encountered a very lost Christopher Columbus are 'extinct.' Through the uncovering of recent ethnographical data, the author reveals extensive narratives of Jibaro Indian resistance and cultural continuity on the island of Boriken.
