Description

Don’t miss the rare chance to witness a Taíno Areyto, a ceremonial dance of the Taino, the indigenous people of Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti/Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas at The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture. Twenty members of the Concilio Taíno Guatu-Ma-cu A Borikén (Puerto Rico) are bringing this performance to Chicago for the first time! It’s a unique opportunity to learn about the Taíno Indigenous people of Puerto Rico (Borikén) and their rich traditions.
