A man is on a journey to reclaim his Caribbean indigenous identity as a Taino. History books say that the Taino People have been extinct for the past 525 years since their first encounter with Christopher Columbus on his first voyage to the New World. He is faced with many obstacles both from within and from institutions that continue to keep the Taino People in the past. The Taino are reclaiming their identity and just as history wrote them out of history they are rewriting themselves back into history.
