The classical source on the study of the indigenous people is Irving Rouse who explored in the 1930s, he wrote and explained the culture and diversity of the Classic Taino people, and according to him it was far more complex than other islands. Their religion was enriched with variety and beauty. The houses were unarranged and irregular around the central plaza. Houses were constructed in such formats which don’t have separations. There was two classifications among villagers who are nation and Siberia. Their gold work was exceptional, and Columbus took notice of their gold work because he had his vested interest in that. Lifestyles were simple, and red was their most favorite color. Their nasal septa ears were pierced while they wore a lot of necklaces. They had classy from agriculture system. They made their inputs into cultivating crops, such fields are known as conuco. Cassava was their principal root crop. They have an advanced system in agriculture even though they planted fruits, cotton, and tobacco around their houses. They had a very interesting religious inclinations. The book which is known as “pane book” is the amalgamation of the Taino’s beliefs and approaches. In this book, they described their expression related to the ghosts, the sea (because it was magnificent to them), the gods and women. The Taino people worshiped Zemis. Occupants of the zami claimed that it brings prosperity, love, and happiness in their lives. They contended that zamis are like a dog with the four legs and when christen arrived he went to the forest and never came to them. They chewed holy plant Digo in their religious ceremonies.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
