Indigenous Peoples’ Day is celebrated in October and Native American Heritage Month is celebrated during the month of November.
Last year I wrote a lengthy post on Taíno children’s books to celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day but somehow I lost it when I updated my blog. Eeek! I know! Nonetheless, I rewrote the post and included the links to the books.

The Taíno were an indigenous people of the Caribbean descendants of the Arawaks. They lived in Cuba, Hispaniola (the Dominican Republic and Haiti), Jamaica, Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, and the northern Lesser Antilles.
A few years ago I wrote a series right here on my blog on “Discovering our Taíno Ancestry” in which I share activities, books and more.
