Diaspora and the Enduring (and Diverse) Indigenous Presence in Cuba
The conclusion gives brief and extended consideration to the question of transculturation as well as to the legacy of indigenous diasporas to Cuba, particularly with respect to the question of surviving descendants and communities of indigenous immigrants in the country by the twentieth century. By logical extension, it also considers the larger question of indigenous history and legacy in Cuba writ large, that is, with respect to the indigenous Arawak Taíno peoples and indigenous “newcomers.” Many intermarried among one another and created mixed, culturally rich indigenous descendant communities in the western regions (and other areas) of the country, living symbols of a multicultural indigenous presence in Cuba, whose roots delve deeply.
