Taino- Once a peaceful tribe in the ]Carribean], mainly in Puerto Rico
enslaved by the Spanish and French. It took less time for them to die than the African slaves because their rescources were either hanging right about them, or right under their noses so didnt have to work, therefore not being used to the harmful working conditions. They all died or were forced to marry Spanish and French men.
The Tainos were usually nudists
, but covered with paint. They welcomed early visitors before they were enslaved in the 1200s, because those vistors came in peace- The Scandanavians and the British were beleived to have visited the Tainos. Taino culture is in the blood of all proud Puerto Ricans to this day.
