This work was done in response to a series of Taino genesis stories I read which were preserved and translated by Ramon Pane a Franciscan friar who was friendly to the local Taino population of PR. The tales are incredibly imaginative and seem to emphasize symmetry and reciprocity in matters of creationism and biological origins.
