Erica Neeganagwedgin


El mundo caribeño ha experimentado un proceso de siglos de expansión europea en sus territorios. Este artículo describe el impacto dramático y la interrupción debido a la colonización y el imperialismo, y las formas en que estos sistemas entrelazados han dado forma a la comprensión del mundo taíno contemporáneo. Examina lo que significa recordar a nuestros antepasados taínos, sus historias que persisten y están in- crustadas en el tejido y el paisaje de las memorias caribeñas cotidianas, su cultura y sus formas de vida que impregnan muchos nombres, lugares y tierras caribeños. Este artículo examina, además, el discurso de la memoria y el conocimiento como formas y actuaciones de la presencia taína encarnada y la vida contemporánea.
