when you say the word, you're invoking the name of the irascible spirit of the Cacique of The Winds, Guabancex
was both the Chief of the Winds in the far away land of Aumatex and a deity. so was chief of spirit people
Nitaino means, "good people" and whenever the good people of the Caribe weren't, Guabancex turns into Juracán
IS A GODDESS
and her spirit,
IS FEMININE SPIRIT
because Spain & USA have been hellbent in erasing Taino culture...
we're invoking Mother Nature's angry spirit and this only happen if we don't feed & tend to her properly...
we unleash Mama's Juracán anger & she washes our fuckery away...
this is more than true resistance. this is what revolution looks like: affirming our culture as Taínos

can i just say one more thing about Juracán? because i can't get over this glyph
Taínos, like the Yoruba from Western Africa, don't believe in the immateriality souls. cemís have bodies, mostly mountains
our topography is LITTERED with Cemís. there is no escaping them. even from the water you see a mountain
