Tuesday, 22 April 2008

Currently, there is no Taino entity recognized by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (B.I.A). The United Confederation of Taino People, however, is recognized by the U.S. CongressU.S. Census Bureau, USA.gov, and several U.S. State and local governments and agencies. In Boriken (Puerto Rico), the Confederation is recognized by the Municipality of Utuado and the Puerto Rican House of Representatives. The work of Confederation is recognized by the Government of Canada and by inter-governmental organizations such as the United Nations and Organization of American States (OAS). In the promotion of indigenous Taino sovereignty, the UCTP has also entered into treaty arrangements with Caribbean Indigenous Governments and Tribal Organizations in Dominica, Trinidad, Barbados, and Bermuda as well as with related South American mainland communities in Venezuela and Guyana.
