PUERTO RICO PROJECT

I received a grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture in collaboration with Julia de Burgos Cultural Arts Center (JDBCAC) that helped fund a dream project for me. I traveled to Puerto Rico to study my indigenous ancestors the Taino's. I explored sacred and important archeological sites capturing footage of artifacts, caves, petroglyphs, ceremonial sites, and museums.

I produced a short film of my travels edited by PRESERVED CLE


I'm thrilled to share it with you!

The second video below is a presentation of the film with 3 of my favorite poets/artist. They shared their work inspired by our Taino ancestors and the film.

 

THANK YOU GRANT SPONSORS!
