"The extinction of the Taino is a myth!"
Dr. LYNNE GUITAR, Reclaiming Taino Heritage in the Dominican Republic
Here is a recently uploaded and very interesting video regarding findings, both genetic and anthropologically, of the survival of Taino genes and culture among Dominicans. I ask of those of you interested in this, to at least watch much of the video, especially the parts where Dr. Guitar expresses her findings, prior to voting.
For an odd reason, the video has a Spanish introduction with no English subtitles. Dr. Lynne Guitar starts speaking in English with no Spanish subtitles at 3:08 minutes and the rest of the video remains in English with no Spanish subtitles. I don’t know why they did the video like this, but whatever. Bilinguals will have no problem, the rest will not be missing much from the introduction.
